The Mandeville Theatre

2 Ridley Road, St. Catharines, ON


In addition to having fully-produced plays back this season, we are also excited to be performing at the Mandeville Theatre at Ridley College in St. Catharines! Local audiences may know this theatre from attending shows presented by the long-standing St. Catharines Community Theatre group, Garden City Productions. We look forward to introducing our Foster Festival audiences to this new space.


On the Ridley College campus in St. Catharines, the Mandeville Theatre is conveniently located near Fourth Avenue which has several shopping and dining options for Foster Festival visitors. This 340 seat theatre is fully equipped, offering audiences comfortable seating and FREE parking for ticket holders. Accessible parking is located at the front of the building. The building is also wheelchair accessible with accessible seating inside the theatre.


Overflow shuttle and bus parking is also available for larger groups.


We’ll see you at the theatre!

Three Acres Farm

1705 Effingham Street, Ridgeville, ON

Because Foster Festival audiences expressed how much they enjoyed our site-specific shows in 2022, we have chosen to continue to think outside-the-box in 2023 and are producing Foster’s play, Outlaw, at Three Acres Farm in Pelham. We are returning to Three Acres Farm where we recently held our First Annual Country Ceilidh in fall 2022. The barn, which was built in the 1870s, makes the perfect setting for this authentic western which takes place in Kansas in 1871.


Three Acres Farm is nestled at the top of the Niagara Escarpment where audiences can enjoy the beautiful views and this fully immersive theatrical experience.
