Arts & Culture:
Port Stanley Festival Theatre
Canadian theatre is back at the Port Stanley Festival Theatre, with a small but mighty season to welcome guests back
FOR MORE THAN 30 years, the Port Stanley Festival Theatre has been welcoming audiences to the north shore of Lake Erie, entertaining them with Canadian works of theatre, from small youth productions to more ambitious, premiere productions, all taking stage at the historic Village Hall.
Since 2010, the theatre has been home to all-Canadian programming, and has been a staging ground for new work from new artists, including an expanded youth program and music in the off-season, as well as an annual Playwright’s Festival to keep supporting up-and-coming new talents in Canadian theatre.
After a tough pandemic year, the Port Stanley Festival Theatre is back with a shortened summer theatre, ready to welcome guests back into Port Stanley, breathing life back into the community — its galleries, gift shops and restaurants. After launching with Chris Gibbs’ A Legal Alien, the season continues with Lorne Elliott’s The Fixer Upper through much of September before concluding with Rick Kish’s The Crooner Show, a high-energy trip down musical memory lane.
There will be something borrowed, something revisited, with artists who are both old friends and new. It will be safe, it will be happy and it will be a celebration.
