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.

April 1917, the Western Front. Two British soldiers are sent to deliver an urgent message to an isolated regiment. If the message is not received in time the regiment will walk into a trap and be massacred. To get to the regiment they will need to cross through enemy territory. Time is of the essence and the journey will be fraught with danger.

Jobless, penniless, and, above all, hopeless, the unmotivated patriarch, Ki-taek, and his equally unambitious family working for peanuts in their squalid basement-level apartment. Then, by sheer luck, a lucrative business proposition will pave the way for an insidiously subtle scheme, working as an English tutor for the teenage daughter of the affluent Park family. Now, the stage seems set for an unceasing winner-take-all class war. How does one get rid of a parasite?
