- The Stratford
Festival of Canada. "At the end of the 1956 season, the giant
canvas tent that housed the Stratford Festival's first four seasons was
dismantled for the last time to make way for a permanent home for the
Festival. Faced with the difficulties of working in Stratford's snow-belt
location, 150 construction workers raced to meet the summer deadline. By
January 26, 1957, when the cornerstone was laid by His Excellency the
Right Honourable Vincent Massey, Governor General of Canada, the building
had already taken recognizable shape. It was formally dedicated on Sunday,
June 30, and the 1957 season opened the next night with a performance of
Hamlet. The building won its designer, Robert Fairfield, the 1958 Massey
Gold Medal for Architecture. At the end of the 1996 season, work began on
a multi-million-dollar renewal of the Festival Theatre's auditorium and
front-of-house. The new facilities, designed by the award-winning
architectural firm of Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg, were completed in
time for the opening of the 1997 season, and were officially opened by Her
Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on June 28, 1997."
