 Lantern Workshop
OTW & Playmakers!

Off the Wall and Playmakers! host a lantern-making workshop at Factory163. Lanterns will shine in Stratford's second annual Lantern Parade Oct. 13th!



Books go through drafts. So do pieces for the theatre.


Watching a work in progress helps an artist see their play through someone else’s eyes. It also gives you the rare chance to see a work in its early stages. By joining the experience, you might just help to shape a future classic.
