The Port Stanley Festival Theatre relies on the generosity of Port Stanley residents
to act as hosts for visiting actors and technical staff. For folks interested in
acting as hosts, Port Stanley Festival Theatre offers an attractive reward package:
a pair of tickets to all our summer offerings (season tickets), a tax receipt ($900
for a six week stay), plus a gift certificate for dinner at a Port Stanley restaurant
of your choice.
Typically, host families provide visiting actors and staff with their own room and
the guest then shares living facilities with the host family ... liken it to having
an interesting room mate for a few weeks! A typical stay is from two to six weeks
... by the way, hosts are not required to provide "board", just accommodation.
The experience can be a lot of fun! These are dynamic, interesting people pursuing
theatre as a career, and who knows, you may be able to say "I knew him/her when...."
If someone needs more detail or wants to consider becoming a host, please call the
theatre at 519-782-3914 and ask for Melissa.
