The last time we replaced our seats was in 2004, and we purchased them as refurbished from a London, England distributor. With approximately 50,000 patrons yearly (and growing!) our weary seats deserve to be retired.

The cushions are worn down, and due to their engineering, entire rows rock back & forth when one person in the row gets up or adjusts their position. Replacing the seats will improve the comfort and accessibility for all patrons. Having a great seat in the house is more than a place to sit, it’s about experiencing live theatre the way you are supposed to- with laughs, thrills and in comfort.

We’ve been listening, and we agree with you- it’s time for new seats!

With this “Get Cheeky” campaign, we invite you to join in our vision to invest in the growth of one of Canada’s largest and strongest summer theatres.

Get Cheeky gives you the chance to leave a lasting legacy and play an important part in enhancing your theatre experience!

Lighthouse Festival Theatre is one of the largest tourism drivers in Norfolk County, and is the region’s only professional theatre.

Through this project, Lighthouse will address accessibility, comfortability and aesthetic challenges associated with the theatre seating area. This project would not be possible without support from corporate partners, foundations, service groups and generous donors like you!

Thank you for supporting our project!


  • We could not do this without generous and amazing donors like you.
