Community Show

Each spring the community show invites local amateur actors to present a spectacular production on the Lighthouse Theatre stage in Port Dover.

The Community Show is a chance for local amateur actors to come together on our stage and be a part of the magic. Supported by our professional crew and designers, these talented community members deliver spectacular productions such as Clue The Musical, Mary Poppins, The Wizard of Oz, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Lend Me A Tenor, and Young Frankenstein.

“Lighthouse provides a stage to showcase talent from the community: actors, singers, technical arts, production etc, which may otherwise not be seen by such a large audience. My favourite part of the process is the moment right before I step on stage, a mix of paralyzing fear and uncontainable joy to step into the light. The people here are the most valuable asset that Lighthouse has: creative, funny and committed to making people laugh. What could be better?” – Julie MacLeod, Community Show Actor

2023 Community Show – Clue The Musical (Julie MacLeod as Mrs. Peacock)

“We community show actors are given the gift of being able to check our problems at the door and play together for a few hours. The laughs backstage with new and old friends are priceless, as is the feeling of making a roomful of people laugh and cry together. I’m grateful to Derek and everyone at Lighthouse for giving us a chance to make magic on that stage, and can’t wait to be back up there again.” – J.P. Antonacci, Community Show Actor
