A fixture on the local performing arts scene for 37 years, Highlands Little Theatre hosted this festival many years ago and is thrilled to be in a position to do so again. The venue for the Festival is the Northern Lights Performing Arts Pavilion. Opened in June 1999, the 226 seat theatre is a dream come true for the performing arts community in the Haliburton Highlands. The facility provides raked theatre seating with excellent sight lines from all angles and high quality acoustics throughout. Built with the latest lighting and sound equipment, the theatre provides patrons with a state of the art theatrical experience in a truly intimate setting. The comfortable seats are offset and have ample leg room. The theatre is fully air conditioned. With advance notification, the theatre can provide seating for wheel chair patrons. The venue also boasts 2 large, well lit dressing rooms each with their own bathroom and shower facilities as well as ample wing and backstage space.

All the Festival’s social activities, as well as the Saturday meeting and Sunday awards brunch will take place at the Bonnie View Inn. This family owned and operated waterfront country inn with big resort amenities recently received a TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Certificate of Excellence as one of the top 25 Inns in Canada.

The festival committee is hard at work to ensure that participants and patrons alike benefit from a satisfying and enjoyable theatre experience. Hope to see you in November.
