THE GIRLS BACK HOME is the story of the American Influence on the Town of Stephenville, and the greater Bay St. George Area, felt through the establishment of the Ernest Harmon Air Force Base from 1941 to 1966 and beyond.
Stephenville Theatre Festival and the Bay St. George Folk Arts Council partner to bring you the ultimate Newfoundland Kitchen Party. Some of the best local performers present traditional and contemporary Newfoundland, Irish – Newfoundland and local French songs and stories. The opportunity for anyone to gain honorary Newfoundland status will occur during intermission with a Screech-In Ceremony. If you wish to be screeched-in please make arrangements in advance by calling 643-4982.
By ABCD Productions
ABCD has been writing and performing sketch comedy shows around the West Coast for over a decade. The Hitchhiker’s Guide To Success was performed to captive and lively audiences in Stephenville and Port aux Basques in the fall of 2018. The story follows two fictional local brothers and their perennial efforts to find legitimate work in contrast to their current and unending illegal livelihood. The brothers are joined by three local musicians who perform traditional songs and instrumental pieces to underscore the presentation.
By the 5 Stages
5 Stages are a Stephenville-based comedy and performance troupe consisting of 4 women and 1 man who have been performing in the area for close to two decades. Their shows focus on music and storytelling which often feature wonderful four-part harmonies. Comedic transitions and interludes are masterfully led by the talented Susan Fowlow.

Curated & Operated by the Stephenville Theatre Festival
MusicFest, a great Stephenville tradition, originally ran from 1985–1999 as a three-day outdoor event showcasing the musical talent of the West Coast of Newfoundland and sometimes beyond. In 2017, MusicFest was successfully restarted by a small committee that engaged the Stephenville Theatre Festival as a partner in the production. In 2018, STF took sole responsibility of MusicFest incorporating it into our season programming. MusicFest has and will again feature a mix of contemporary music, classic rock, traditional music and country.
MusicFest offers STF the opportunity to provide further local employment for artists, production staff, trades people, facility employees, and local vendors.
Created by the STF creative team and ensemble, along with members of the STF Young Company, this spectacular evening serves as the finale to our festival season. A celebration of song, dance and story, the gala has become the not to be missed event of the summer.
Following the winning model of “Rocket Man” and “Piano Man”, our new dinner theatre presentation, LET IT BE – THE LIFE AND MUSIC OF THE BEATLES, involves creative arrangements of the music of one of the most iconic bands of all time, The Beatles!
