Martin Happer as Sergius and Claire Jullien as Louka.
2014 was a year of both consolidation and change for the Shaw Festival.
Financially, we are able to report a second year with a healthy operating surplus; artistically
we presented ten acclaimed productions in Niagara-on-the-Lake as well as two in Toronto;
and operationally we began to deal with the leadership transition of both our artistic and
executive directors.
This year’s surplus came about in part as a result of a change in the terms of our Option to purchase
the Anchorage lands, thanks to the generous support of the owners of Vintage Hotels. For the past
three years we had accrued hundreds of thousands of dollars against an interest charge that would
form part of the eventual purchase price, but in 2014 Vintage Hotels agreed to waive this and we
were able to reverse the accrual as an unusual gain.
We did however achieve a genuine surplus on operations, if not at the level of 2013. Several productions shone, such as our magnificent production of Cabaret and the hugely popular When
We Are Married, which needed to have performances added to the end of its run. We transferred
two very different shows to Toronto – The Mountaintop, our collaboration with Obsidian Theatre,
and our 2013 smash hit Arcadia which was remounted by Mirvish Productions at the Royal
Alexandra Theatre.
Jackie Maxwell decided in March that she would step down as artistic director at the end of the
2016 season, and executive director Elaine Calder informed the Board at its September meeting
that she would not be seeking a renewal of her contract when it expires in September 2015. Both
women made thoughtful choices about their futures: Jackie felt that she would be ready for new
challenges after 14 years as artistic director of the Festival, and Elaine has decided it is time to
stop working altogether and retire to the Pacific Northwest. The Board of Governors accepted
their decisions with regret and a keen appreciation of the strong partnership they have formed,
to The Shaw’s great advantage.
Their work has been aided immeasurably by the strong management team, highly dedicated
administrative and production employees, our gifted creative teams and superb ensemble of actors and musicians. My work and theirs is generously supported by our Board of Governors, our
Endowment Foundation in Canada and our American Foundation in Buffalo, the Shaw Guild
and several Committees. We all work as volunteers, contributing thousands of hours, invaluable
professional expertise and significant financial gifts to ensure that this splendid theatre company
continues to be one of the finest repertory theatre companies in the English-speaking world.
Thank you for your interest and generous support. Be sure to join us in 2015!

JUNO AND THE PAYCOCK
ARTISTIC DIRECTOR’S REPORT
by Sean O’Casey, directed by Jackie Maxwell,
designed by Peter Hartwell, lighting designed by
Bonnie Beecher, original music by Paul Sportelli.
Mary Haney as Juno Boyle.
The diversity of programming in 2014 embraced classics from the past and the present, all linked
by a sophistication of directorial approach and stunning performances from our ensemble.
Audiences were re-introduced to the musical Cabaret in Peter Hinton’s dazzling and disturbing
production with a brilliant cast led by Deborah Hay, Juan Chioran and Gray Powell. Lisa Peterson
made a glorious debut with a vibrant, sexy “rethink” of Shaw’s original version of The Philanderer
with Gord Rand in the title role. Eda Holmes and her design team created a world of poetic
beauty for Edward Bond’s complex dystopia The Sea, and again the ensemble shone led by Fiona
Reid and Patrick Galligan. Morris Panych and Ken MacDonald gave us a hilarious Arms and
The Man set in a cuckoo clock, while Joe Ziegler polished J. B. Priestley’s When We Are Married,
with an unmatchable ensemble cast, to burnished perfection. Christopher Newton brought his
singular understanding of St John Hankin to The Charity that Began at Home, while Dennis
Garnhum led a spirited cast headed by a delicious Moya O’Connell through The Philadelphia Story. I benefitted from the dream acting trifecta of Mary Haney, Jim Mezon and
Benedict Campbell in Juno and the Paycock; while Kevin Hanchard and Alana Hibbert caused
real sparks to fly in Philip Akin’s production of The Mountaintop. Blair Williams allowed both
comedy and drama room to shine in Tennessee Williams’ A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur. All
of these productions kept alive the elements of surprise and rediscovery, so vital in the theatre.
Things were also busy behind the scenes. We continued preparations for two new works which
we are producing in 2015 – Michel Marc Bouchard’s The Divine, a beautiful exploration of the
power of theatre, written especially for The Shaw; and Erin Shields’ refreshing new version of
Ibsen’s The Lady from the Sea. Also in development are three significant pieces which are slated
for future seasons: Peter Hinton’s adaptation of Alice in Wonderland – already a wonder indeed;
Lisa Codrington’s spirited new version of Shaw’s The Black Girl in Search of God; and Hanna
Moscovitch’s ambitious adaptation of Ann-Marie MacDonald’s Fall on Your Knees.
And there was more! It has been a real desire of mine to get the extraordinary work of this Festival
out to other cities. This year Toronto saw the remounting of our glorious 2013 production of Arcadia
at the Royal Alexandra Theatre as part of the Mirvish’s subscription season. The piece transferred
beautifully into its new home and our actors were on fire causing huzzas from audiences and critics alike. Meanwhile, our production of The Mountaintop, a collaboration with Obsidian Theatre,
opened at the Daniel Spectrum Theatre just a few weeks before. By the time you read this, we
will have opened our production of The Philadelphia Story at Theatre Calgary, director Dennis
Garnhum’s home base, to what already promises to be a very warm welcome.
It is hard to believe all of the above has happened in one year and, of course, it simply would not
have happened without the ongoing energy, vision, talent and belief of our brilliant artists, our creative technicians, our incredibly hardworking staff and our supportive and hardworking Board.
I thank you all.

PROFESSIONAL AND AUDIENCE DEVELOPMENT:
THE SLAIGHT FAMILY ACADEMY
Many programs are offered through The Slaight Family Academy, all designed to inform, enrich
and deepen The Shaw experience.
Professionally, we provide in-season training for members of the company as well as apprenticeships for young actors, designers, directors, technicians and stage managers. Before the season
begins we program a three-week Mandate Intensive led by senior company members and visiting
experts, which is designed to give young actors an immersion into the manners, customs, and
political, social and cultural history of our namesake’s era.
In late September comes the annual Neil Munro Intern Directors Project, named for our late
Associate Director and designed to showcase the work of our two intern directors. They each select
a one-act play that is then designed, rehearsed and presented for audiences of company members,
specially invited artistic directors and other theatre professionals and members of the Governors
Council. Dozens of young directors from across the country apply each year to apprentice with
us, and many of our graduates are now enjoying successful careers as freelance directors and
artistic directors. This showcase has been produced for many years with the assistance of Sun Life
Financial and Theatre Ontario, and is unique in Canada. Although their support ended with the
2014 Project, the program will continue with a generous gift from an anonymous donor.
For our audiences we offer a range of programs. Throughout the performance season these fall
under the program banner “Beyond the Stage” and include the Shaw seminars, teachers’ days,
speakers’ series, backstage tours, workshops, lectures, public readings and pre- and post-show
discussions with members of the acting ensemble. In 2014 a special weekend focused on the First
World War with a lecture by historian Margaret MacMillan, an interview with film-maker Paul
Gross, and a reading of Peter Whelan’s The Accrington Pals.
For visiting school, university and special interest groups we supplement the performances they
attend with tours, workshops and discussions, and we offer a three-month drama school for 8- to
18-year-olds every fall.
This activity is made possible by the generous support of The Slaight Family Foundation. The
Slaight family has had a profound impact on The Shaw for decades, through their individual and
collective generosity and leadership, and in 2009 the Academy was renamed in their honour. Their
support is two-fold: as well as its generous annual grant for operations the Foundation is building
a large endowment as a legacy gift. The endowment is growing rapidly thanks in part to matching
funding from the Canadian government – ensuring the future sustainability of the Academy and
its many programs.
In addition to the Slaight Family gifts, The Shaw enjoys significant support for this important
aspect of our work from the George Cedric Metcalf Charitable Foundation, the RBC Foundation,
Sun Life Financial, OLG, Guarantee Gold and Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life.
NEW PLAY DEVELOPMENT
For theatre to grow, diversify and stay relevant, fresh new perspectives and voices are needed.
Since the introduction of playwrights into the Shaw company and new work into the programming, our audiences have shown their enthusiasm for a wide range of plays, translations and
adaptations. Past successes include Belle Moral: A Natural History by Ann-Marie MacDonald,
which premiered in 2005 and was revived in 2008, and which Toronto critic Paula Citron described
as “a play chocked full of provocative ideas and scintillating language”; Morwyn Brebner’s hugely
popular adaptation of Ferencz Molnar’s The President, starring Lorne Kennedy in both the 2008
and 2011 seasons; and the passionate musical Maria Severa by Jay Turvey and Paul Sportelli, which
premiered in the 2011 season.
Our 2015 season will feature three new works:
The Divine, written by celebrated Quebec playwright, Michel Marc Bouchard, based on Sarah
Bernhardt’s visit to Quebec City in the early 1900s and her subsequent, inevitable clashes with
the Catholic Church.
Ibsen’s Lady from the Sea in a new version by Erin Shields, who won the 2011 Governor
General’s Literary Award for English Language Drama.
The Next Whisky Bar: A Kurt Weill Cabaret, created by Paul Sportelli and Jay Turvey.
In 2013 we started a rich new cycle of development with several brand new, very different projects:
There is already great excitement around the adaptation of Alice in Wonderland we have commissioned writer and director Peter Hinton to write for our company – a fantastical, ambitious version currently scheduled to play in our Festival Theatre in 2016.
Another project that is causing great ripples of interest is an adaptation of Ann-Marie
MacDonald’s best-selling novel, Fall on Your Knees. Playwright Hannah Moscovitch and director Alisa Palmer are working together on what is currently planned as a theatrical trilogy!
A theatrical reworking of Shaw’s The Black Girl in Search of God by actress and writer Lisa
Codrington, nominee for the Governor General’s Award in 2006.
To bring these new works to the stage involves a process of readings, workshops and design discussions, sometimes over several seasons. Both the Shaw Festival and our writers are eligible for
funding from the Canada Council and the Ontario Arts Council in the form of special grants, and
the generous annual support we receive from both these agencies reflects in part our commitment
to advancing the Canadian theatrical canon.
We are also grateful for special funding received from individual donors who want to support
this important work, and who are delighted to be a part of our new play development process.
Ultimately all these pieces will take their place in our programming, sitting proudly alongside
works by Shaw, Coward, Sowerby, Williams and on!
“A midnight-black comedy that whipsaws the viewer between uproarious
small-town satire and a stoicism so
bleak and astringent that it makes
your skin tingle. Eda Holmes’s staging is nothing short of remarkable.”

THE SHAW “ABROAD”
The Shaw Festival has a long history of taking its productions to other venues,
starting as early as 1967 – Canada’s centennial year – when at the end of the sixth
season Major Barbara travelled to Montreal and Winnipeg. As well as transfers
to cities like Ottawa, Calgary, Vancouver, Philadelphia and Washington, DC, The
Shaw established the Toronto Project in the 1980s – co-productions during the
winter months with some of the city’s smaller theatres like Toronto Free, Factory
and Passe Muraille. These were usually contemporary plays, and even an opera:
R. Murray Schafer’s Patria I – The Characteristics Man, co-produced with the
Canadian Opera Company and featuring members of the Shaw acting ensemble. The series ended in 1988 with the hugely successful Fire by Paul Ledoux and
David Young.
Under Jackie Maxwell’s leadership, taking the Shaw Festival “abroad” to other cities has been an important objective, but one which has frequently had to defer to
more pressing priorities. Even so, at the end of her second season in 2004 Jackie’s
production of Rutherford and Son by Githa Sowerby transferred to the National
Arts Centre in Ottawa for 19 performances, and early in 2008 her production of
Shaw’s Saint Joan was presented by Chicago Shakespeare Theatre to great critical acclaim from the Chicago critics. Belle Moral, by Canadian playwright and
novelist Ann-Marie MacDonald, played here first in 2005 and was remounted in
2008 for a second season and a subsequent transfer to the National Arts Centre in
Ottawa. Transfers have been rare since then until this year, with only the Studio
production of Topdog/Underdog by Suzan-Lori Parks moving to director Philip
Akins’ Obsidian Theatre in Toronto in the fall of 2011.
ARCADIA
IN TORONTO
“A tour de force, theatre of a calibre you are unlikely to brush
up against for many a long year... It will long be remembered
as one of the jewels in the crown of artistic director Jackie
Maxwell’s reign at The Shaw.” TORONTO STA R
“This is the sweet zone for a company of actors trained in the
works of Bernard Shaw – and the excellent performances in
this ensemble include Powell’s understated Septimus, Nicole
Underhay’s sizzling Lady Croom and Donnelly’s restrained
Hannah...a scintillating production of a play many consider
to be Stoppard’s best.” GLOBE A ND M A IL
Gray Powell as Septimus, Nicole Underhay as Lady Croom, Sanjay Talwar as
Captain Brice and Andrew Bunker as Ezra Chater.
This season, however, saw two Shaw productions playing in Toronto: our Studio
production of Katori Hall’s The Mountaintop, again directed by Philip Akin, transferred to Obsidian Theatre at the end of its successful run here, and our 2013 soldout Studio production of Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia was remounted for a six-week
run at the Royal Alexandra Theatre, opening on November 9th. We were invited
to do this by Mirvish Productions, who own and operate the theatre and who presented Arcadia as part of its 2014-15 subscription season. Director Eda Holmes rerehearsed the original cast in Niagara during the last three weeks of our season,
and the production once again garnered critical accolades from the Toronto media.
In fact we have a long history of performances at the Royal Alex dating back to
1975, when The Devil’s Disciple, starring then-artistic director Paxton Whitehead,
played there for a week. 1985 saw Cyrano de Bergerac, which had sold out its 65performance run at the Festival Theatre the year before, and in 1996 we remounted One for the Pot, a hit from a decade earlier, specifically for a 51-performance
run at the Royal Alex prior to the start of our regular season in Niagara.
Jackie dreams of taking a Shaw Festival production to the Abbey Theatre in
Ireland. She has an excellent relationship with artistic director Fiach Mac
Conghail – but since both Jackie and Fiach will be stepping down from their positions in the next couple of years they’d better act fast if this is to become something we can all travel to Dublin to experience!

BASIS OF PRESENTATION
The accompanying condensed financial statements represent an extract from the annual financial statements of
the Shaw Festival Theatre, Canada, for the year ended November 30, 2014. A complete set of financial statements,
together with the report of our auditors, Ernst & Young llp, is available on request from the Director of Finance and
Administration, Shaw Festival Theatre, Canada, Box 774, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario l0ſ 1j0.
2013 results have been restated to conform with the 2014 presentation.
SHAW FESTIVAL THEATRE ENDOWMENT FOUNDATION
The Endowment Foundation was formed in 2003 under the chairmanship of Anthony R. Graham,
a Past Chair of the Shaw Festival Theatre, Canada. It is the fiduciary trust of the Shaw Festival
Theatre, Canada.
CONDENSED STATEMENT OF FINANCIAL POSITION
As at November 30 (in thousands)
The Foundation’s funds are held in perpetuity for the long-term support of the Shaw Festival.
They are invested by a portfolio manager, Letko Brosseau and Associates Inc., whose performance is monitored by the Investment Committee of the Foundation’s Board. A portion of the
income earned each year provides The Shaw with a steady source of revenue for operations, and
fosters innovative initiatives such as new play development and education programs. As the
endowment grows, it is becoming a significant source of income through both wise investment
and additional contributions from donors who appreciate that a healthy endowment is a sign of
fiscal responsibility.
assets
Thanks to the generosity of many Shaw supporters, as well as federal and provincial endowment
incentive programs, the Shaw Festival Endowment Fund includes the general endowment fund,
two general restricted funds, twenty-six restricted named funds and two Board restricted funds.
Gifts to the endowment may be made in both Canada and the United States.
In September 2014 the Endowment Foundation Board approved a one-time contribution of
$4 million and a loan of $800,000 to assist the Shaw Festival Theatre in the acquisition of land
in Niagara-on-the-Lake, in anticipation of a future building project. The $4.8 million was net
income available for this purpose and was in excess of total endowed capital. As of November
30th the real estate transaction is not complete and neither the gift nor the loan has been disbursed to the Theatre.

We maintain our stature as a great theatre company with the support of thousands of generous
donors. The Shaw Festival receives grants and gifts from foundations, corporations, businesses, individuals and all three levels of government. Contributions come from both Canada and the United
States, in the form of cash, securities, in-kind donations, special event purchases and estate gifts.
Most of the approximately $9 million we received in 2014 came to support the work in our four theatres, but significant gifts were also made to the Endowment Foundation where they will be eligible
for a matching grant from the Canadian Heritage Endowment Incentives program.
We are grateful to all our donors, and welcome gifts of any size. While we cannot list everyone who
contributed to the 2014 season, we acknowledge these largest contributions:

VOLUNTEERS
With approximately 400 members, the Shaw Guild volunteers are involved in many aspects of our operations,
tearing tickets, leading backstage tours, working in the Festival Theatre gardens and running their own very
successful fund-raising events. They are represented on the Board of Governors by their President.
For many years our Library has been professionally maintained and managed on a volunteer basis by
Nancy Butler.
Other individuals volunteer their talents as well, working on special fundraising events in Niagara-on-theLake and Toronto. We estimate that in total our volunteers donate more than 10,000 hours each year, and we
are immensely grateful for their time, talents and commitment.
