"A masterful new Canadian comedy classic by Canada's favorite playwright." …
Second up in the 2018 40th Anniversary Summer Season celebrating uniquely made in
Canada stories, the Port Stanley Festival Theatre is thrilled to present "Halfway
There" by Canada's most produced playwright, Norm Foster. Running from June 6th,
in our newly renovated Grace Auditorium, this rollicking east-coast comedy enjoys
an extended four week run with a closing June 30th.
Audiences will be pleased to recognize actors Liz Gilroy ("Knickers, a Brief Comedy",
"Mini Putt", and "Boeing, Boeing") Marcia Tratt ("Hilda's Yard", "Misery", and "Looking"),
and Sarah Gale ("Perfect Wedding", "Old Wives' Tales", and "A Christmas Carol")
as they return to the Port Stanley stage, and to welcome newcomers Andy Pogson ("5
Alarm" and "I'll Be Back Before Midnight") and Daniela Vlaskalic ("Deathtrap" and
Doubt". "Halfway There" is directed by PSFT Artistic Director Simon Joynes, and
Stage Managed by Jory McLean, with Set Design by PSFT's Production Manager Tony
Sclafani, and Lighting Design by Karen Crichton.
"Dr Sean is looking to escape for a while. What he hasn't prepared for is a quartet
of diner divas set on giving him a truly east coast welcome! Romance, gossip, bawdy
tales, and the true meaning of friendships that last forever."
With a varied season, which will appeal to single ticket buyers, subscribers, and
tour groups alike, the Port Stanley Festival Theatre provides another season of
top quality entertainment in 2018.
