Past Seasons

2016 marked The Foster Festival's inaugural season in Niagara. With three sparkling Foster comedies, The Foster Festival succeeded in producing a fully professional and highly acclaimed summer theatre season.

Here On The Flight Path

Sex, love, life and loss are all discussed with big laughs and a few tears in what many describe as Norm Foster’s funniest play ever.

  • Peter Hartwell's beautiful set last summer for our first show, On a First Name Basis, had our audiences enthralled. How he integrated design elements of Cairns Hall into the set brought an intimacy to the show and showcased the incredible beauty of our performance space. I can't wait to work with him again for our second season!
