How COVID-19 has impacted the Arts & The Foster Festival

First to close, last to open. Help support the Festival and our Artists during these difficult times.


Following COVID-19 and all of the challenges this pandemic has brought to communities around the world, our main goal is to get our artists working again and to lift our audience’s spirits with our Holiday reading series of Norm Foster’s The Christmas Tree in December 2020.


The Arts & Culture industry has been one of the hardest hit industries. Our Holiday reading series gives artists an opportunity to get back to doing what they love to do, performing, and for us to get back to doing what we love to do, sharing our art with you, our audiences.

Play a role in our productions. 

Your gift, no matter the type, is greatly appreciated. 


Your support allows us to:

  • Present performances at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre and pop up shows across St. Catharines.
  • Hire our talented actors, production  and stage management team members.
  • Nurture and support emerging theatre talent.
  • Provide arts enrichment program for children, youth and adults.
  • Subsidize tickets for those in our community who may not be able to attend otherwise due to social or economic disadvantage.
