Description & Services
|Information||Festival Antigonish Summer Theatre has been a professional theatre since 1987 and is committed to developing an understanding and appreciation for theatre within the community through the production of high-quality professional work.
Within this mandate, we strive to create a supportive environment for Nova Scotia artists to hone their talents and present, produce and develop new work.
The repertory nature of Festival Antigonish supports a balanced selection of Canadian and International works, providing an opportunity for established and emerging theatre artists to take on new challenges.
The Festival’s artistic choices emphasize the legitimacy and unique character of Nova Scotian Theatre and provide all age groups in the community with access to a range of theatre.
We want to produce theatre that is perceived both by our audience and by theatre practitioners as:
• Well produced and of fine quality
• Responsive to our lives as members of the community of Antigonish, Nova Scotia, and of the wider world
• Challenging and yet entertaining and accessible to our key regional audience
• Providing stimulus for thought and ideas as a truly integral part of our community’s cultural life
