Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON (February 11, 2014) — The return of Ensemble members from across Canada to Niagara-on-the-Lake begins the countdown to a new Shaw Festival season. This week, rehearsals begin for the Masteroff/Kander/Ebb musical Cabaret; next week actors head to the rehearsal hall for Bernard Shaw’s Arms and The Man; and on March 3, rehearsals start for St. John Hankin’s The Charity that Began at Home. Preview performances of these shows begin in April.

The continued return of Ensemble members over the next few weeks also coincides with the start of rehearsals for When We Are Married and The Philadelphia Story, which preview in May.

Tickets are now on sale for the Festival’s 2014 season of 10 plays, which begins on April 4. The season officially opens at the Royal George Theatre on May 9 with the Morris Panych-directed Arms and The Man.

For those who would like to go beyond the stage, auxiliary events like the popular Play Reading Series and the Speakers Series return. This season’s Speaker Series will feature Commemorating the Outbreak of World War I, a special weekend event with writer, actor and director Paul Gross and acclaimed historian Margaret MacMillan.
