COVID-19: As per Provincial guidelines, we are currently limited to only 150 audience members per performance. This means we have had to strictly restrict our seating to 124 in order to comply with the social distancing requirements. For each performance on sale we have assigned “bubbles” in groups of 4, 3, 2 and 1. To help us reach our maximum capacity, please purchase your tickets in the correct bubble size – if you don’t see an available group in the size you require please give us a call in the box office (902-354-5250) as we may be able to do some rearranging.
Masks must be worn at all times inside the building, including throughout the performance.
