Initially paused due to pandemic restrictions, with a re-opening plan announced by the province on February 9, tickets to Neptune Theatre’s Act Two shows are once again available.
Act Two will open with Beneath Springhill: The Maurice Ruddick Story on March 1. Starring Nova Scotia’s Jeremiah Sparks, it is the story of singing miner Maurice Ruddick, an African-Canadian who survived nine days underground during the historic Springhill mining disaster of 1958.
Also, in March, actor and singer Kelly Holiff takes to the stage with a five performance run 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.
May sees Neptune presenting Samqwan, a multi-disciplinary show created and choreographed by Mi’kmaw artist Sarah Prosper.
The cult classic musical The Rocky Horror Show closes out the season May 3 through June 26, complete with midnight performances and encouraged interaction for its die-hard fans.
Following the province’s current phased approach to re-opening, masks must be worn, and Neptune will continue to maintain physical distancing and check the vaccine status of patrons.
