Synopsis

We are proud to announce that The Kitchen Party Theatre Festival  is returning for a second season from August 1 - 15, 2021! 

The Kitchen Party Theatre Festival  – where the kettle is always on and our hearts are always open is a new festival nestled in Grand Falls-Windsor, right in the kitchen heart of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The Kitchen Party Theatre Festival is the creation of and under the direction of co-Artistic Directors Bernardine Stapleton and Nicole Smith. Their mission is to create and present high-end, authentic, traditional, experiential theatre and to animate extraordinary stories from ordinary people through theatre, art, and music, connecting with the beautiful vista of Central Newfoundland. The heart of every home is the kitchen. Our province is renowned for and may even have invented the kitchen party. The kitchen is the center of home, where people gather to celebrate and eat. It’s where we share the stories and songs of who we are. The Kitchen Party is where strangers become friends and friends become family. It’s where memories are made.

The festival's inaugural season was last year in 2020, and plans had to pivot due to the pandemic. But the team successfully launched their 2020 season virtually with two theatre workshops and a Sunday morning podcast series on Facebook.

This second season in 2021, is looking very promising. They are looking forward to connecting with audiences in person, and are planning performances in the theatre at the Gordon Pinsent Centre for the Arts. 
Mark you calendar for August 1 - 15, and please stay tuned for more performance announcements and tickets going on sale!

The Kitchen Party Theatre Festival is made possible through partnerships with the Arts and Culture Centres specifically the Gordon Pinsent Centre for the Arts, and the Town of Grand Falls-Windsor along with a host of other funders including Arts NL, the Ontario Arts Council, the Canada Council for the Arts, and CEDP.
