How did a small town in rural Ontario become the cultural mecca of classical theater in North America? The people you encounter as you go around Stratford are actors, directors, craftspeople, architects, producers, writers, and lovers of drama. Some might remember the plays they watched in their childhood, 30 years ago. Others may be aspiring thespians, having landed a spot in the musical ensemble for the first time. Inspired by the Humans of New York project, this blog invites you to speak to residents and visitors you encounter in Stratford. Invite them to tell you a story and offer to take their picture to be featured in our people blog.
