The world premiere of Controlled Damage explores the life of  Viola Desmond  and how her act of bravery in a New Glasgow, NS movie theatre started a ripple effect throughout society.

The Hobbit (All Ages)

Thursday March 5 @ 11am - SOLD OUT
Friday March 6 @ 11am - SOLD OUT

This new adaptation of Tolkien's classic is a fast paced retelling of the tale of Bilbo Baggins, who positively loathed adventures, but one day found himself embroiled in the greatest adventure in the whole history of middle earth, in a search for dragon guarded gold. This critically acclaimed adaptation uses masks, puppetry and shadow play to create Tolkien's world of dwarves, dragons, trolls, elves, giant spiders, goblins and, of course, hobbits.

Wednesday May 13 @ 11am - SOLD OUT

Determined to make his dreams come true,  Billy Elliot The Musical  is an inspirational story of one boy’s stumble from the boxing ring to the ballet studio. Against all odds, his life is changed forever when his passion inspires not only his family but a community fallen on hard times.
