The Baddeck Theater plans to return to the stage later this year with four shows
BADDECK, NS – The Baddeck Theater is bringing back the theater in person, with four shows, including the revival of their holiday production.
The Baddeck Theater said that as provincial capacity restrictions on theaters eased, the theater felt it was the right time to expand from three to four productions this season.
Co-artistic producer Hannah Ziss said last year’s season had many challenges, but exceeded expectations.
“Attendance was higher than expected and we received rave reviews. It showed that audiences were very eager to return to the theater even with the COVID-19 restrictions.”
The Myth of the Ostrich by Matt Murray will run from July 7-23. The Canadian comedy will also premiere in Nova Scotia.
Sheldon Currie’s Lauchie, Liza and Rory will run from August 4-27. The moving comedy toured from Canada to New Zealand and also won the Robert Merritt Award for Outstanding New Play from Nova Scotia in 2004.
Christy MacRae-Ziss’ Mystery of the Hydrofoil will run from September 22 through October 15. This adaptation of the popular young adult novel by Eric Walters had a very successful workshop presentation at the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site in 2019 and this complete production will be its world premiere.
Charles Dickens Writes a Christmas Carol by Richard Quesnel will run from December 8-17. This Canadian adaptation of the holiday classic tells the story of Scrooge and his ghostly visitors freshly with Charles Dickens himself as the central character.
All performances will be held at 24 Queen Street, Baddeck NS. More information can be found by contacting 902-412-7122 or visiting www.theatrebaddeck.com.
