St. Catharines: The Norm Foster Theatre Festival announces its 2021/22 season

Thursday, October 21, 2021

Starting in December 2021, we have planned an exciting 12 months of Funtastic Foster programming that will deliver our trademark Humour with Heart that you have grown to love.

The Norm Foster Theatre Festival may look a little different in 2022. We are offering an entire year of dynamic programming with a variety of opportunities to enjoy 7 new Norm Foster works & 1 greatest hit!

"This pandemic has allowed us to pause, expand our creative thinking, and reexamine our former producing model," said Emily Oriold, Artistic Producer. "We have discovered that offering programming all year long gives us a greater opportunity to broaden our reach, diversify our offerings, engage even more artists, and build stronger partnerships with local businesses so that we all benefit."

"I'm excited by this new model," said Norm Foster, Co-Founder & Playwright. "I am still jazzed about writing. In fact, during COVID, my passion for writing grew even greater and I think it is reflected in the quality of work I have produced during this time."

We cannot wait to share these new Foster works with you in 2022!
