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 The Producers, 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.

“Life is full of so many overwhelming emotions, the only way to express those feelings is to sing! I am exhilarated to be a part of LFT’s Community Show where we will bring joy and laughter through song and dance; offensive content and costume changes are bonus ;)”
Nikki Wiltac, Community Show Actor

2024 Community Show – The Producers (Nikki Wiltac, Ensemble)

“Having attended the Lighthouse Community shows for years,  I am excited to finally be part of the action. The Producers is such a fun show with a lot of wacky characters and songs which make being part of the ensemble a hoot.”
Lisa Shebib, Community Show Actor

“I am excited to meet more people in the community and have the opportunity to sing with others (instead of alone in the car). I am also excited for all of the ridiculousness and over-the-top-ness that this show promises; I’m looking forward to bringing lots of laughs and joy into the community.” – Justine Draus, Community Show Actor

“The Producers has always been a favourite in my family. When I heard about the opportunity to be part of the show, it was a no brainer; I had to audition! Being part of community theatre is such a wonderful thing. You meet incredible people who share in the excitement of live performance and have so much fun seeing it all come together. It’s quite rewarding being part of the process from start to finish.” – Shelby Mulder, Community Show Actor

2018 Community Show – Mary Poppins (Jason Mayo as Mrs. Corry)

“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
