Message from the Chair of the Board

Welcome to the Stephenville Theatre Festival website.  Since 1979, when Maxim Mazumdar visited the area to adjudicate a provincial drama festival, the Stephenville Theatre Festival, has been producing professional theatre.  Today, it is recognized as a leader of the arts and one of Atlantic Canada’s most auspicious and eclectic producers of theatre.  Our shows will entertain you with the adventures and experiences of Musical Theatre, Broadway, new Canadian works, classics and any genre of music.

While this year will be a little different, a little longer season, less crowds and perhaps less opportunities to gather and socialize afterwards, the opportunity to see great theatre still exists.  Our Artistic Director, Heather Braaten, will be gathering an amazing company with actors, directors, musicians, other creative and production personnel, most of whom will come from a smaller section of the country.  But, you will still be able to enjoy top notch theatre at its best. 

Stephenville Theatre Festival could not deliver this quality of theatrical performances without the many individuals, businesses, and organizations, along with all levels of government, who contribute financially to help make our festival possible.  Over the years, there have been an untold number of dedicated volunteers, generous contributors and patrons, without whom, we would not be here today.  On behalf of the STF Board of Directors, thank you. 

Marie Alexander

Chair, Stephenville Theatre Festival
