Sunday mornings I usually take time to catch up on stories I may not have time to read through the week. I thought I would share some that caught my eye this week.
Relaxed performances break down barriers at Stratford Festival – Kitchener-Waterloo – CBC News
What a treat it must be for families or individuals to be able to experience theatre in a setting that is comfortable for them. Kudos to the Stratford Festival for making this happen and inspiring others to do the same.
