Travac Tours is pleased to announce its program to the Shaw Festival for 2020. This year we will be offering two exciting plays, “The Devil’s Disciple” and “Gypsy”.

“The Devil’s Disciple” is classic Shaw. This, Shaw’s first major “hit”, has some of his best scenes and his sharpest comedy. It is the story of Revolution-era New England and a Presbyterian minister who is sentenced to the gallows for helping “rebels”. The play unfolds with many twists and turns that are so common to Shaw and his social conscience.

“Gypsy” is an American musical fable about Gypsy Rose Lee, America’s most famous striptease artist of here time. You’ll be able to follow her story in Stephen Sondheim’s timeless musical that features legendary songs including “Let Me Entertain You” and “Everything’s Coming Up Roses”.

Travac’s Shaw Festival holiday is affordably priced at only $689 per person based on double occupancy + plus HST of $89.57. Total cost per person with HST is $778.57 (May departure).

Your holiday includes round trip transportation, 2 night’s accommodation at the Holiday Inn Express in Niagara on the Lake, 2 breakfasts, 1 dinner, orchestra seating for both plays and the services of a Travac Tours Director.

Early booking is essential.
