Welcoming our new Executive Director

We are proud and excited to officially welcome Nicole Campbell as the Executive Director of Lighthouse Festival Theatre!

Growing up in Norfolk County, Lighthouse has always had a special place in Nicole’s heart, from seeing productions here as a child to playing Alice in a Young Company production of Alice in Wonderland.

Nicole was hired as publicist in 2014, and she soon found herself making key contributions to the success of major projects, renovations, and donor campaigns. She even filled in for an ailing actor at the last minute during our 2017 Community Show production!

Working closely with her predecessor, Helen Wagenaar, Nicole has spent the past four years getting to know every facet of Lighthouse’s operations while deepening her appreciation of the quality theatre that takes place on our stage.

In leading the theatre into a new era, Nicole will focus on celebrating what makes Lighthouse a celebrated part of the Canadian professional theatre landscape and an economic driver for Port Dover and the region.

“At its core, my job is to to support Derek’s artistic vision by creating an environment in which the incredible talent that fills our stage can shine,” said Nicole.

“I am thrilled for the opportunity to evolve with this thriving organization that I am so passionate about. I’m excited to be working with our dedicated and vibrant team to drive further growth and build upon the theatre’s strong foundation.”
