The Foster Festival is the very first theatre festival in Canada celebrating the work of a living Canadian playwright. Norm Foster comedies have been staged around the world for over two decades – we are honoured to be bringing them home to Canadian theatre lovers!
At The Foster Festival, it is our mission to showcase the heart and humour of Foster’s writing in a dedicated environment, employing the finest Canadian theatre practitioners and to foster and support emerging and established Canadian playwrights interested in stories that are entertaining but also deeply meaningful to and reflective of our audience.
While our primary function is to deliver top-notch theatre to audiences in Niagara and beyond, we are deeply invested in our community here in St Catharines. The Foster Festival is a registered Not-For-Profit, Charitable Organization #81051 0180 RR0001. We are deeply committed to the City of St. Catharines’ CompassionateSTC initiative. We believe that everyone deserves to have access to the arts. Our programming, with its focus on “Humour with Heart in the heart of Niagara” can help lighten the load of Niagara’s most vulnerable citizens.
