Second Annual Laughter in the Vineyard a Huge Success!

Posted May 1st, 2017 in Norm Foster, Blog

On Sunday, April 30th, The Foster Festival's annual Laughter in the Vineyard Fundraiser at Vineland Estates Winery in Niagara was a great success!

As a result of the support and generosity of our guests, sponsors and auction donors the Foster Festival was able to reach it's fundraising goal for this event! A big thank you to everyone involved - our Volunteers and Board of Directors - we could not have put this event together without you. Bravo!

Guests enjoyed an afternoon of fine food, fine wine, and laughter overlooking the beautiful vineyard in Vineland Estates Winery's Carriage House.

Laughter in the Vineyard guests were treated to Wine Blending Sessions, Private Tea Leaf Readings, fine food, fine wine, a very entertaining Live Auction and a sneak peek of our World Premiere Production of Norm Foster's Lunenburg.

Cast members Melanie Janzen, Catherine McGregor and Peter Krantz tickled our guests' funny bones with their scene reading from one of Foster's newest plays set in Nova Scotia and titled, Lunenburg. The walls in the Carriage House vibrated with laughter. We are sure to have another laugh-out-loud Foster hit on our hands! 

Lunenburg runs August 2 - August 18, 2017 at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre in downtown St. Catharines - Humour with Heart in the heart of Niagara!
