ITS THEATRE SEASON CANCELLED, SHAW FESTIVAL TO HOST LIVE, OUTDOOR MUSICAL SHOWS THIS FALL

Festival will get $400,000 from the province as part of its support for Niagara tourism

A month after cancelling most of its 2020 season, the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake says it will be welcoming back audiences for outdoor performances.

In a Twitter post, Shaw Festival says they will be putting on a “series of musical performance opportunities and a few other surprises.”

The minister of economic development Mélanie Joly, who is responsible for FedDev Ontario, announced an “intention to provide a contribution of up to $400,000 to the Shaw to support outdoor theatre performances and support visitor activity in Niagara-on-the-Lake.”

She said the money would help the Shaw Festival to continue “welcoming visitors, adapt to the new reality and keep supporting the region’s visitor economy.”
