Stratford Festival says its 2020 season is gearing up to one of its “biggest ever” as tickets went on sale Friday, and the festival gets ready to unveil a new $100-million Tom Patterson Theatre.

Though tickets only went on sale to the public at large Friday at noon, the festival says it’s already had to extend the run of two of its productions as members clamoured to buy tickets in the members-only advanced sale.

One of those productions, Richard III, will star Colm Feore in the festival’s new $100-million Tom Patterson Theatre.

Until 2018, the Tom Patterson Theatre had been a retrofitted community space that had served as a curling rink, badminton court and community centre in the off season.
