The Astor Theatre to Remain Closed until September 1, 2020



Covid-19 Update 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 4, 2020

LIVERPOOL, NS — The historic Astor Theatre in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, will remain closed for the spring and summer, the theatre’s board of directors announced today in response to ongoing precautions around the COVID-19 pandemic.

All events planned for the theatre up to Sept. 1 have been either cancelled or re-scheduled. The annual summer theatre camp has also been cancelled for this year. Any tickets for live events that patrons have purchased will be valid for the re-scheduled date.

The board made these difficult decisions to respect the safety of the Astor’s staff, performers and patrons.

Kristopher Snarby, chairman of the Astor Theatre Society, thanked all of the theatre’s staff for their commitment and dedication.

“We also want to thank our community for their ongoing support and we want to assure them that this is only a temporary closure,” Snarby said. “We look forward to reopening when we can.”

The Astor Theatre is the artistic hub of Nova Scotia’s South Shore. Built in 1902 as part of Liverpool’s historic town hall, it was originally known as the Liverpool Opera House. The Astor has hosted a variety of local, national and international events, from the popular Queens County Music Festival and Liverpool International Theatre Festival to concerts featuring Rufus Wainwright and Measha Brueggergosman.
