NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE, ONTARIO – IATSE Local 828, with the assistance of the International, has been met with success in its efforts to certify scenic artists at the Shaw Festival. A certification vote was held last week and Local 828 was thrilled with the decisive victory.

The Festival produces 10 to 12 plays each season, with over 800 performances in the four theatres, to audiences totaling roughly 300,000 people.
