On Tuesday, the Honourable Helena Jaczek, Minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario), announced over $11.3 million in support of the Stratford Shakespearean Festival of Canada (Stratford Festival) and seven tourism and community projects.

As part of this announcement, the Stratford Perth Museum received $55,500 through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund for the second phase of the Player’s Backstage project.

That funding is earmarked for a sound system, seating, a shade sail to cover the seating area, hard surface accessible pathways and additional parking with environmentally friendly turf stone that will ensure slower stormwater runoff.
