Welcome to the The Stephenville Theatre Festival. I am thrilled that you have joined us for our 41st annual season. We are excited to be presenting an eclectic program this summer and I believe there is something for everyone to enjoy across our stages.
As the Artistic Director of the festival I am amazed at the amount of support we receive from our community. I would like to personally thank all of our sponsors and supporters, as well as our audience for investing in, and supporting live theatre.
The time I have spent at STF has been a period of exciting artistic growth, not only for myself but also for the festival. While the production of exciting theatre is the heart of who we are and what we do, our creative mentorship programmes, the STF Young Company and our audience engagement activities also help to make STF an important cultural resource within the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the many people who come together to make our festival possible. The board of directors, administrative staff, and the artists that work diligently in creation, production and performance come together to make an incredible community that I am very proud to be a part of creating.
For me, the theatre is a space that fosters collaboration, process, innovation and communication. It has a very special and completely unique way of bringing people together to share and experience a moment in time. I thank you for sharing your summer with us. Enjoy the show!
