50/50 Raffle

Neptune Theatre is excited to announce an online 50/50 fundraiser! 

Here we go again!

Neptune Theatre has been a part of the Halifax community since 1915 originally known as the Strand Theatre. Under the name Neptune Theatre, we were incorporated as a not for profit through the province on July 6, 1962 (registration number# 1282134) and registered with CRA as a charitable organization on January 1, 1967 (business number 119053502 RT 0001).

Our mission is to engage audiences with stories that represent the history and diversity of our region and its people. For 58 years, Neptune Theatre has contributed to the cultural, social and economic well-being of Halifax and the province. For generations audiences have delighted in the stories we share on our stages. As we look to the future, under the vision of Artistic Director Jeremy Webb, Neptune Theatre will embark on a journey of creative growth in which audiences will see more work from Atlantic Canadian and Canadian playwrights; stories that represent the diversity of our communities and region; accessible programming so that all can enjoy the experience of live theatre; and increased opportunities for the growth and development of emerging, local artists.

When the inevitable impact of the Coronavirus reached Nova Scotia we were forced to make the difficult decision to close the shows in the remainder of our 2019/2020 season.

The show must go on, and will go on, but we need your help. Because we are more reliant on ticket sales and less on outside funding – we are left vulnerable. With bills to pay and no shows on stage, we are quickly depleting the money needed to get shows back on our stages.  Your donation will help us withstand this difficult time.
