We've Got The Right Fit for You!

We are thrilled to be back for our third summer season here in St. Catharines: HUMOUR WITH HEART in the heart of Niagara!

We are offering you an opportunity to join us in the celebration of Canada’s most popular playwright and an Order of Canada recipient, Norm Foster! Share in the laughter this summer with The Foster Festival.

  • The calibre of the production, the acting, the writing of Norm Foster, all at St. Catharines' new Performing Arts Centre….lots and lots of fun and really funny!  Loved the performances….Well worth the sponsorship…a good fit for my brand!

  • Thorold Community Theatre was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to sponsor the opening night of the world premier of Halfway There during the Foster Festival's inaugural season at their new home at St Catharines new Performing Arts Centre. We are honoured and thrilled to have done so. The inclusion of our logo and signage, as well as a mention in the preshow announcements and a chance to schmooze with Norm himself, was everything we could have hoped for. And yet, one never knows where an adventure like this leads. At one of our own events, about a month later, two ladies were heard chatting. One said to the other, "I didn't even know Thorold had a community theatre until I heard them mentioned at the Foster Festival a few weeks ago". Thank you, Emily and Trish and everyone at the Foster Festival, for allowing us to be a part of your very successful and amazing first year.
    - Rob Goslin, Thorold Community Players
