On Wednesday, November 18, fourteen Stratford Branch participants enjoyed the tour arranged by the Stratford Branch Seniors Committee.
Our tour was conducted by a festival volunteer. We were privileged to visit the Archives containing clippings, costumes, and props from the beginning of the Festival.
The collection of costumes, furniture and props in the warehouse was overwhelming. Insight was gained into the creativity behind the props in particular.
The volunteer regaled us with interesting stories about the past and gave us a fascinating glimpse into next year’s season.
