The Port Stanley Festival Theatre is a 200 seat theatre located in the former Town Hall building on the North Shore of beautiful Lake Erie in Port Stanley, Ontario. Our mandate is to produce appealing summer theatre that highlights Canadian works in drama, comedy and musical-comedy, along with other celebrated works.
Port Stanley Festival Theatre participates in the Ontario Arts Council’s Theatre Creators’ Reserve program, which assists Ontario-based professional theatre creators and informal collectives of creators by funding them to create work. Theatre creators who are interested in participating in the program are encouraged to contact the Theatre’s Artistic Director, Simon Joynes.
New play development is a priority. The Port Stanley Festival Theatre hosts a Playwrights’ Festival every September helping to develop new Canadian stories.
