Showboat Festival Theatre is a not-for-profit, charitable organization dedicated to fostering, promoting, nurturing and presenting Canadian theatre. Since 1987, Showboat has been creating theatre, and bringing pure enjoyment to its audiences from all over Niagara and beyond. With the love and support of its community at large, and many hard-working individuals who want so passionately to see Showboat thrive, it is doing exactly that. It is thriving.

Audiences are raving about Showboat’s productions, and the number of people signing up for subscriptions in order to see all four shows is growing rapidly! You are all a part of the Showboat family – whether you are a subscriber, single ticket buyer, volunteer, or donor. Without you, this theatre could not survive. And that is not an exaggeration.

Your contribution, in any form, helps to improve Showboat’s productions and operations.

The future of Showboat Festival Theatre remains bright because of you, and for that our entire team of artists, actors, designers, managers, technicians, builders, partners, painters, coordinators and administrators are incredibly grateful. Thank you.
