Arts & Entertainment Community Featured

ANTIGONISH –  Have an opportunity to hear about Theatre Antigonish’s annual season launch at an information session on Thursday, Sept. 13 at 5 p.m., at the Bauer Theatre at StFX University.

Now entering its 44th year, Theatre Antigonish is a professionally led community theatre organization, offering high quality productions at the Bauer Theatre during the fall and winter months. As a non-profit organization, Theatre Antigonish brings together StFX students and members of the local community to work together on all aspects of the plays, including acting, designing, set-building, sound and light, and promotions.

The season launch will provide a chance to hear about this year’s line-up from artistic director Andrea Boyd, learn about opportunities to participate both on-stage and off-stage, and sign up for auditions or volunteer roles. Boyd and guests will also announce some exciting new partnerships and additions to the regular program. As in past years, there will be a call out for actors, stage managers, designers, ushers, sewers, builders, publicists, and technicians. No prior experience is necessary, and new participants are welcome in all aspects of the productions. Organizers are excited to reveal the 2018-19 program, and hope to see a good turnout at the launch.

The Bauer Theatre is a busy place, having just wrapped up a very successful summer with Festival Antigonish (the professional summer theatre company, also housed at the Bauer Theatre).

“It has been a great summer with Festival Antigonish,” says managing director Reema Fuller. “Now it is time once again for our talented community to have their moment in the spotlight and on the stage. Andrea has programmed an excellent season for Theatre Antigonish, and we cannot wait to announce the program at the launch. We recognize September is a busy time for many people so the actual event will be short – under an hour – but there will be an opportunity to speak with various members of the team.”
