With pandemic restrictions playing havoc with gathering limits over the past 18 months, theatre companies like Halifax’s Neptune Theatre have seen whole seasons cancelled, reimagined, rescheduled, and cancelled again.
“Our company of artists will lift your spirits, blow your minds and remind you of what is possible now we’re back inside our theatre and creating magic just for you.” – Neptune Theatre
As Nova Scotia begins to ease restrictions, our city’s largest professional theatre company will re-open with Reunited a trio of summer concerts as a fundraiser to help reopen the theatre and raise funds to mount its 2021-2022 season.
The summer series kicks off on July 23 and 24 with Anthems. Described as “a night of musical theatre songs that have become iconic calls to action,” it seems a somehow fitting first live show at the company’s downtown venue in months.
On July 30 and 31, After Hours takes audiences on a trip into the sexy and slightly seedy world of the Moulin Rouge. In August, Can’t Stop the Beat will focus on show tunes that create hope for the future.
