Local Hero Sponsorship

Take your turn in the spotlight! Become a Local Hero Sponsor and help less fortunate members of our community enjoy an exciting afternoon or evening of theatre here in Niagara!

Become a Local Hero!

The Foster Festival believes that cultural engagement should be available to everyone in the community regardless of means. So we've created our Local Heroes Program. 

During our 2018 Season, the Foster Festival will give 100 complimentary tickets to Bethlehem Housing and Support Services and its partner organizations to distribute to their clients - people who, due to social or economic disadvantage, might never be able to attend our shows. We feel the chance to escape their everyday stresses and enjoy live theatre shouldn't be a luxury. But that's not all!

In partnership with Mahtay Café, we also provide each attendee with a $10 gift card to enjoy "a Mahtay treat across the street" following the performance. 

We're proud to provide an opportunity to experience highly entertaining professional theatre through these wonderful partnerships. Helping people feel good makes us feel great!

If our Local Heroes Program interests you and your company and if you'd like to contribute to the health of our community, please join us as a Local Hero Sponsor and share in the laughter with us at the Foster Festival.
