With Neptune Theatre’s Act Two of its 2021-2022 season originally scheduled to get underway in just a few days, current pandemic health restrictions have put another wrench in the company’s plans, with shows rescheduled to begin in March.
Despite this disappointing setback, we are focused on reopening Neptune and supporting the stability and longevity of the local theatre community. – Jeremy Webb
“This is disheartening news to deliver to our audiences, actors, designers, production team and employees once again,” says artistic director Jeremy Webb in a media release.
“Despite this disappointing setback, we are focused on reopening Neptune and supporting the stability and longevity of the local theatre community.”
The fourth closure Halifax’s largest professional theatre company has dealt with since the pandemic initially closed the theatre in March 2020, the new schedule will begin with Beau Dixon’s Beneath Springhill: The Maurice Ruddick Story. Featuring Preston-born actor Jeremiah Sparks, the show will now run from March 1-20.
March will also see actor and singer Kelly Holiff performing a four-night run (March 24-27) of Adele’s most iconic songs in Rumour Has It – The Songbook of Adele.
In April, Neptune presents shalan joudry’s Koqm, created to honour the forgotten voices of L’nu (Mi’kmaw) women, largely left out of historical colonial accounts.
Samqwan, a multi-disciplinary show created and choreographed by Mi’kmaw artist Sarah Prosper, will remain at its original dates of May 12-15.
The much-anticipated cult classic musical The Rocky Horror Show has moved to May, with specific dates yet to be announced.
Neptune asks patrons to hold their tickets for upcoming performances as they will automatically be moved to the new dates. The theatre’s box office team will follow up with all ticket holders.
Tickets for the five shows in Neptune Theatre’s Act Two are now on sale. Visit neptunetheatre.com for tickets and information.
