Enjoy some of William Shakespeare’s most famous plays at the Shaw and Stratford Festivals. Ride The Maid of the Mist tour and stand in awe of Niagara Falls’ rushing waters. Take a sunset stroll along the bank of the Avon River and watch the swans. These are some of the experiences you can have on FHU’s week-long trip to Stratford, Canada. The trip typically occurs every other year in May and is open to FHU students as well as alumni and friends of the University.
The group attends around seven productions during the trip, with optional performances occurring at other times during the week at additional cost. Recent plays have included Shakespeare’s As You Like It and MacBeth, Alice in Wonderland, Sweeney Todd, and The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe. Performed on the Stratford Festival’s legendary thrust stage, these performances feature some of Canada’s leading theater actors. No audience member is more than 65 feet from the stage for these dynamic productions.
