For the first time in Lighthouse Festival Theatre’s 40-year history, a community-oriented local business has sponsored the entire summer season. We are proud and excited to announce Execulink Telecom as the 2019 and 2020 Season Presenter.
Execulink’s sponsorship represents an exciting union of technology and the arts that will have a direct impact on the patron experience at Lighthouse. With Execulink’s support, we will offer our patrons a free wireless hotspot in our box office lobby and Long Bar areas. Perfect for sharing photos and memories of your special night at the theatre on social media!
Execulink’s Fibre to the Home service will provide us with faster and more reliable internet access throughout our century-old building, which will help our tech crew keep things looking and sounding great on stage. Execulink’s high-speed system will also allow our office and box office teams to implement new customer service initiatives to better connect with and cater to the 50,000 theatregoers who visit us every summer, as well as our many visiting artists.
“We are thrilled to be the Season Presenter Sponsor with the Lighthouse Festival Theatre and are proud to support activities which allow youth and locals to express themselves creatively,” said Ian Stevens, President and CEO of Execulink Telecom. “This partnership is driven by our Vision, Mission and Values and focuses on supporting creative and educational activities within our local Port Dover community.”
Execulink is an enthusiastic, community-minded business founded right here in Southern Ontario. We at Lighthouse are thankful for this new partnership, which will help us continue to present residents of Port Dover, Norfolk County, and beyond with the very best in Canadian professional live theatre, while enhancing the patron experience.
“Since the first story was ever told, thousands of years ago, the purpose was to communicate an experience. To theatrically share with an audience the excitement or danger of an adventure. To educate and inspire those around us, so they in turn could learn, be entertained and flourish,” said Lighthouse Artistic Director Derek Ritschel.
“Lighthouse Festival Theatre and Execulink share those same goals. One uses the power of the stage and one uses the power of the internet. The old world and the new, working together to share the human experience to those close to us. Our technology may be millenniums apart, but we stand side by side – looking to the future.”
