Ontario- Shaw Festival

September 27 – 29, 2022

Travac Tours is pleased to announce that it will be offering a special program this year at the Shaw Festival.

We will feature one of the most popular plays in the 60-year history of the festival, The Doctors Dilemma, by George Bernard Shaw. This exploration of medical ethics by Shaw has again found its moment. If one patient can only live at the cost of another’s life, how on earth do you choose? What is the value of a human life? Questions which have never lost their urgency are brought to thrilling life in this tragicomic tour de force.

Our second play Damn Yankees is a delightful, fast-paced, crowd-pleasing, romantic musical.  It is indeed one of the feature plays of the 2022 Shaw season.

We are also offering the option of a third play: The Importance of Being Ernest by Oscar Wilde. Subtitled A Trivial Comedy for Serious People, Oscar Wilde’s last and greatest play concentrates all his incredible wit and observation into a dazzling satire of Victorian attitudes.

Travac’s Shaw Festival Holiday is affordably priced at only $739.00 per person based on double occupancy + plus taxes and fuel surcharge of $129.97. Total cost per person with HST is $868.97.

Your holiday includes round trip transportation by deluxe chartered coach, 2 nights’ accommodation in Niagara on the Lake at the Holiday Inn Express, 2 breakfasts, 1 dinner, orchestra seating for both plays and the services of a Travac Tours director.

Should you decide to take advantage of the third play, The Importance of Being Ernest, tickets are $95.00 and must be booked at the time of your initial booking.
