Dear Lighthouse Fan,
I have been waiting to send you this note for 488 days. I promised you we would return and today I am shouting it from the rooftop of our historic town hall... we are back!
I have been vibrating with excitement for days waiting to share this news with you, and now that I have, I should paint the whole picture.
I knew at the beginning of this year that the key to summer performances was an outdoor theatre experience featuring some great one act plays and started immediately looking for potential partners who could help bring my vision to life. That is when Mark Stortini offered the use of the professional event tent he has on the grounds of the Links at Dover Coast. It is the perfect canvas for restarting the engine that is Lighthouse.
We will begin with a world premiere from Mark Crawford titled Chase The Ace, the story of Charlie King, a big city radio host that is forced to take a job managing a small-town station. Not only does Charlie quickly find himself embroiled in a story of municipal corruption, but a pandemic has swept across the globe on his first week. This hilarious one-man comedy is the perfect beginning to Lighthouse’s re-opening journey and I cannot wait to hear your laughter fill the tent.
The second show is by Lighthouse favourite Kristen Da Silva and is a Lighthouse commissioned play and world premiere titled Beyond The Sea. On a pier in a small town a pair of strangers begin a conversation that can change the destiny of two lost souls forever. Theo and Gwen explore love, loss and the importance of looking forward. With humour and heart, they show us that no one is perfect … and in the end, that may be the greatest strength that we all share.
We are eternally grateful to the community partners who have helped us reach this critical re-opening milestone. Thank you to Execulink Telecom for returning as the Season Presenter before we knew what our summer playbill would look like, to the McKeil family for their generous support and to the Links at Dover Coast for giving us a temporary home where we can get back to doing what we do best, making you laugh. We would also like to recognize the Province of Ontario, who provided funding during the pandemic to help us purchase the necessary health and safety equipment needed for re-opening.
The team at Lighthouse has been working towards this for many months and we are ready to welcome you back and share these funny and touching stories with you. We are also planning a production and hosting some incredible rental events for the fall and early winter if indoor capacities and regulations allow. But more on that down the road.
Now for the minutia...
Following the government’s re-opening restrictions, we can welcome 54 patrons for each performance with each pair of seats spaced six feet apart. Face coverings will need to be worn in the tent until you are seated, then they can be removed.
Tickets will be sold in pairs to match the seating lay out with 27 pairs available for each performance. Tickets will go on sale to the public on Tuesday July 20. Donors and subscribers will have access to a limited pre-sale prior to the tickets being available to the public.
The full details of our Covid-19 protocols and what to expect when visiting our tent can be found on our website at here.
I cannot thank all of you enough for your support and kind words over the last 16 months. Your positivity and commitment to be there when we returned helped me and my team remain optimistic. We start our journey in nine days with a small audience of 54, a couple of charming one act plays and with our sights firmly fixed on a full summer season of sold out shows for 2022.

Hi Mr. Mark Stortini,
I am messaging you to praise the brilliant customer service we received from two of your employees. We frequent Davids and have had the pleasure of having Zanella as our server on many occasions. This past weekend we celebrated a birthday and an anniversary and chose Davids as our celebration venue. Zanella has an amazing flair with people. She is well versed with all menu items and always greets us with so much enthusiasm. We love her, she should be considered a GEM to your business. Nothing is ever an effort for her. Even when the restaurant is super busy we never feel neglected. Her smiling face is always just around the corner. We would also like to acknowledge Carlie McMaster. Our first encounter with her but an amazing one. She was so very personable and welcoming. I believe that she is a manager? My partner and I work in the world of physiotherapy therefore great food and wine are a staple in our lives. We love table 203. Have had many memorable celebrations at that table. Thank you for retaining such amazing staff. Please reward these two wonderful women for making our every visit to Davids another memory to hang on to. We are already planning our next visit. Oh by the way. I requested that the chef come to our table so that we could sing his praises. Zanella made it happen. Amen. Thank you Mr. Stortini for this amazing night. With grateful thanks.
In an effort to ensure quality of product and service incumbent to the expectations of our guests we have introduced a new reservation policy for “groups” of 8 or more. Please review carefully as this policy will be part of our booking procedure for all “groups” of 8 or more.
It is the obligation of the employee to inform the guest booking of this policy at time of taking card information
Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to your continued support of excellent restaurant and lounge.

Scott McRae, the head chef at David’s Restaurant in Port Dover, edged two other challengers this weekend at the Road to the Royal cooking competition at the Norfolk County Fair.
McRae, assisted by colleague Ryan Murphy, topped teams from the Blue Elephant and The Combine restaurants in Simcoe on Saturday. McRae will compete against seven other regional finalists for the provincial title at next month’s Royal Winter Fair in Toronto.
McRae impressed the three-judge panel with a meal of braised pork belly sautéed in apple cider offset with a hint of spicy kimchee. For dessert, he whipped up servings of biscuit pumpkin pie with ice cream.
At the Royal, McRae will compete against chefs who prevailed at the Peterborough Fair, the Barrie Fair, the Paris Fair, the Great Northern Exhibition in Collingwood, the Markham Fair and a chef selected to represent Toronto. The semi-finals will be held Nov. 7-8 while the finals will be held Nov. 15.
The 92nd Royal Winter Fair runs from Nov. 7 to Nov. 16. It will be held at the Direct Energy Centre and Ricoh Coliseum.
