Description & Services
Th'YARC (The Yarmouth Arts Regional Centre) is the largest multi-function performance and arts centre in Southwestern Nova Scotia. 
Th'YRC presents both professional and amateur artists. We present on-stage dramas, comedies, musicals, dance, and musicians. As well, we host art exhibits, workshops, and youth arts and theatre camps.  
With a mandate to educate, entertain and promote both the performing and visual arts in Southwestern Nova Scotia, the centre consists of a 327 soft seat theatre with fly tower, dressing rooms, an art gallery, an artist/all purpose studio, an etching studio, set construction room, and a costume studio. 
It operates year round with a staff of two and approximately 300 volunteers.
We are open 10 AM - 5 PM, from Tuesday to Friday (Mondays by chance), and always 1 hour before curtain. 
(If a show is on a Saturday or Sunday we will also be open from 1 - 4 PM.)
