tford, Ont., Offers Pleasant Cultural Weekend

FESTIVAL THEATRE-Construction of the theatre was begun in September, 1956, on the site of the original theatre-

By DAVID KESSEL
Stratford, Ontario, home of the
Shakespeare Festival and the curi-
ous swans, is easily reached from
rural Ann Arbor via Port Huron,
Sarnia, London, and St. Marys.
This pleasant five-hour (or reck-
less four hour) trip is best made
on Route 7 through Ontario; once
in Stratford the path to the
theatre is well marked with blue
arrows..
Local restaurants and shops
greet tourists with something ap-
proaching delight, although it
must be remembered that the rate
of monetary exchange is presently.

cream pie at a Chinese restaurant
late one night, we noted with
amusement the proprietor working
out the dollar devalution on his
abacus.
Theatre New Last Year
The Festival theatre has been
completed since last summer;
musical events are held at the
Avon Theatre in downtown Strat-
ford. It looks as though this place
was once a, real "fleapit," but with
air conditioning and a new stage,
it is quite adequate for perform-
ances of "The Beggar's Opera,"

the Pro Musica group from New
York.
Stratford is just recovering from
a quick visit by H. R. H. Princess
Margaret, who arrived July 31, and
stayed long enough to see "The
Winter's Tale"-and v1- p through
some of it according to the yellow
press.

Pictures of Margaret still hang
in shop windows, flags wave from
front porches, and excitement still
prevails.
Hungry Swans
Near the Festival Theatre there
flows a river, full of hungry swans
who snap eagerly at whatever
tourists throw at them. Canoes are
available at remarkably low prices
as are odd looking boats with hand
operated paddle wheels.
Inside the Theatre, crowds of
people move about: visiting school
boys from England wearing blue
blazers, distinguished men wear-
ing monocles, itinerant journalists,
visitors from all over.
Shortly before each act, a tour-
ing group of trumpets, trombones,
and snare drum plays a short fan-
fare. This is the signal for late-
comers to find their way into the
partially darkened Theatre, fur-

STRATFORD SWANS-The landscape along Stratford's river Is
cluttered with these swans, eagerly accepting handouts from
generous spectators. Village authorities claim no swan has ever
pecked a visitor, but shortly after being photographed, swan at

nished in the Elizabethan man-
ner, with modifications.
Stage Is Traditional
The stage is traditional, on two
levels with numerous entrances
and stairways. Tunnels lead to the
stage from underneath sloping
rows of seats, and a semi-circular
balcony seats perhaps one-third of
the audience.
Lights dim, a cannon sounds
(not nearly so loud as last year)
and the play begins. From the
brass chorale playing "God Save
the Queen" which begins each per-
formance, to the final cannon, te
attention of the audience is cap-
