The Stratford Festival of Canada announced its 2014 season Tuesday.

Planned productions in the Festival Theatre venue include William Shakespeare's "King Lear," directed by Antoni Cimolino; George Gershwin's "Crazy for You," directed and choreographed by Donna Feore; Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream," directed by Chris Abraham and George Farquhar's "The Beaux Stratagem," also directed by Cimolino, the artistic director of the festival.

In the Avon Theatre, Stratford audiences will see Noel Coward's "Hay Fever," directed by Alisa Palmer; the musical "Man of La Mancha," directed by Robert McQueen and "Alice Through the Looking-Glass," directed by Jillian Keiley.

The Tom Patterson Theatre will host Bertolt Brecht's "Mother Courage," directed by Martha Henry; Shakespeare's "King John," directed by Tim Carroll; and Shakespeare's "Anthony and Cleopatra," directed by the Chicago-based director Gary Griffin.

The Studio Theatre will be the venue for Linda Gaboriau’s translation of Michel Marc Bouchard’s "Christina, The Girl King," a piece about Christina of Sweden by one of Qeubec's leading playwrights, and, last but by no means least, a four-actor version of "A Midsummer Night's Dream," directed by the acclaimed director Peter Sellars and likely to sell out before it opens.

Tickets go on sale to the general public in January.
