For almost 40 years, Theatre Newfoundland Labrador has set the stage for magical experiences. And for 25 of those years, much of the magic has been happening in the small rural community of Cow Head on Newfoundland’s Northern Peninsula in the heart of Gros Morne National Park. This is the setting for the very successful Gros Morne Theatre Festival. Attracting thousands of visitors each year, The Gros Morne Theatre Festival has been the creative nucleus of a scene that exports the best of Newfoundland and Labrador theatre throughout Canada and around the world, while bringing stories and talent from around the world to our Province.
I have seen firsthand the benefits of a vigorous and local theatre scene in building professional careers and revitalizing rural communities. We can all play a part in telling our stories. Thank you to the volunteers and staff who support Theatre Newfoundland Labrador. I offer my best wishes for continued success.
