Holiday spirit alive and well at the Shaw Festival

Media Bulletin #1

Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON (December 9, 2013) — Christmas merriment abounds at the Shaw Festival. This weekend’s visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake by jolly old St. Nick kicks off The Shaw’s seasonal activities.

The Shaw continues its traditional commitment to the annual Niagara-on-the-Lake Santa Claus Parade on Saturday, December 14, 2013. Festively bedecked and ready to bring joy and smiles to those lining the parade route, the Shaw Festival’s float will make its way through Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Old Town beginning at 11 a.m.

Hailed as one of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s finest holiday traditions, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol will once again feature members of The Shaw Acting Ensemble. The annual dramatic reading with musical accompaniment takes place at St. Mark’s Anglican Church (41 Byron Street) on December 22 at 3 p.m. Proceeds benefit Bethlehem Housing and Support Services.
