Niagara Gazette — NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE, Ont. — Tickets to the Shaw Festival’s season of 11 productions are now on sale to the general public.

The Shaw Festival’s 52nd season begins April 3 and runs until Oct. 27. It features 11 productions on the festival’s four Niagara-on-the-Lake stages.

This season features a potent and diverse mix from “Major Barbara,” one of Shaw’s wittiest and most provocative plays, to the “greatest of all American musicals” — “Guys and Dolls,” Oscar Wilde’s bitingly satirical “Lady Windermere’s Fan” and the timelessly beautiful “Enchanted April.”

There’s also the world premiere of “Peace in our Time: A Comedy” (adapted from Shaw’s Geneva), the Tony-award winning musical “The Light in the Piazza,” “Trifles,” a lunchtime presentation of two one-act plays, the social comedy “Our Betters,” Brian Friel’s compelling “Faith Healer” and “Arcadia,” the Tom Stoppard contemporary Shavian masterpiece.

Ticket information can be obtained through the Shaw Festival Box Office or website: 1-800-511-7429.

The Festival Theatre Box Office and Bernard’s, the Shaw Festival Shop, are located at 10 Queen’s Parade in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

The Festival Theatre Box Office will be open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Saturday. The box office will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. beginning April 13.
