Thank You

We have brought the curtain down on our 2019 season.

Over the summer we have had the pleasure of receiving hundreds of comments from patrons in the lobby and on the street telling me how much they enjoyed the season as a whole and specific shows in particular. It is heartening to hear these remarks because it tells me that our goals, excellence and producing an entertaining season, are being achieved.

On behalf of everyone involved with the Highlands Summer Festival, thank you for your loyalty this year and in past seasons. Thank you for endorsing our efforts by buying tickets. Thank you for your donations and support for our fund-raising projects. And thank you to our business supporters who see the Highlands Summer Festival as an important part of summer in the Highlands.

Planning is already underway for 2020. We should have details on the season on our website (www.highlandssummerfestival.on.ca) in early November. In the meantime….

See you at the theatre next summer,

Brian Kipping,

Front of Line service when you make a donation

When purchasing your tickets, please consider making a donation to the Highlands Summer Festival one of the most vibrant community theatre companies in Ontario. As a not-for-profit registered charity, we will provide you with a receipt which you can use for income tax purposes. The more than 150 artists and volunteers who make the annual Highlands Summer Festival season happen are heartened by endorsement of their efforts through the purchase of season passes. However, additional funds are needed to ensure the continued viability of the company.

Make a Donation

Your donation has additional benefits for you, including front of line ticket ordering priority, recognition on our website and in the program and the satisfaction of supporting one of Ontario’s outstanding summer theatre companies. Note: donations are receipted for the tax year in which they are received.

See you at the theatre
