Festival Antigonish Summer Theatre

Professional Theatre since 1987

Festival Antigonish Summer Theatre 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.
