Opening this Weekend: Three to Get Married

Three to get Married by Kay Hill is a historic comedy set near Aylesford, Nova Scotia, in the 1830s. It tells how a resourceful clergyman sets out to marry off his three daughters. With the running of the first stagecoach in Nova Scotia, the Government is offering a subsidy of twenty-five pounds to any householder on the route who will open his home as an inn for the passengers. Horatio accepts the subsidy and lies in wait for eligible male passengers. Will it happen? Not if Aunt Lizzie has anything to say about it!

Three to Get Married is directed by Beth Irvine and will appeal from teens to older historic people! Cast in order of appearance, Darrell Doucette, Chantal Murphy, Hannah Gerrits, Emily Lutz, Nancy O’Halloran, Collyn Boon, Ryan Trimper, Kevin Irvine, Michael Bishop and Ryan MacNab.

Dinner Theatre Recap

What a weekend at CentreStage theatre! Two sold out crowds enjoyed the dinner put on by St. Joseph’s Knights of Columbus and the theatre production of Contempt of Court. It was very successful.

CentreStage would like to thank the following businesses for their support in providing product and services to our silent auction: Neptune Theatre, Swingology. Union Street, Quick As A Wink Theatre, Callisters, In Good Hands, Sister’s Alternative, Elements of Health, Kings County Home Hardware, Festival Antigonish, Dartmouth Players, Ship’s Company, Absolutely Fabulous Bed, Bath and Home, Julie Skaling Physiotherapy Clinic, Steeped Tea, Valley Family Fun, Farmer John’s Herbs and the Apple Blossom Festival. We certainly appreciate this type of contribution to our fundraising efforts.

Also to all the individuals who either donated items and /or their time., we owe great thanks. To the waiters who gave up their Friday and Saturdays nights to help with the dinner and clean up - thank you.

Not to be forgotten, the actors and crew whose journey began in late January - from the page to the stage, for the audience’s enjoyment. And to the audience who did their part, laughing and entering into the antics of CentreStage's Night Court! Court is now adjourned.

Reno Updates!

It certainly has been a busy few weeks at CentreStage. The Main Stage Theatre in the Lower Performance Centre is coming along nicely. The upgrades to the seating and lighting will add a great deal to the theatre goers’ enjoyment. These adjustments will also make it a more versatile space, allowing for non-theatrical uses such as presentations, seminars, visiting entertainers, workshops, and more. Everything is on schedule, knock on wood!
