The Stratford Festival Company (1956)

Here's a nice picture (not new, but HQ -- just click to embiggen) ...

taken from this program:

The 1956 Stratford Shakespearean Festival (Henry V and The Merry Wives of Windsor)

It has no further pictures of young Bill Shatner, but the introduction is quite interesting, as one of the foundation's boardmembers tries to explain the flop of their Tamburlaine production in New York earlier that year, which can be found here:

Christopher Marlowe's Tamburlaine the Great (The Festival Company of Stratford, Canada)
Tamburlaine the Great Playbill for the Winter Garden (New York 1956)
