March and April are busy times for the Neptune Theatre School. With our March Break Camps including the TD YPCo March Break Boot Camp and Leader in Training Program and Spring Classes launcing.
This Spring we are also excited to bring back some exciting opportunities like the Zoom Playreading Group and Student Council. TD YPCo shows are currently being planned and announcements for those will be coming soon.
Neptune has partnered with Halifax Regional Arts Virtual Programs to bring you an new initiative:
This is open to any student grade 9-12. Workhops are on Zoom, on Thursdays at 7:45pm starting on March 25th.
Neptune instructors are Ivy Charles and Logan Robins. With special guests from the Canadian Green Alliance.

*Our goal with the Climb It! Project is to raise voices and create artistic spaces that allow us to workshop and develop scenes, songs, monologues, spoken word and more that will come together to be presented as part of our TourCo shows in 2022-23. We are really excited to bring together different youth to tell their stories, collaborate and share this work with people in their communities.
We are working hard to bring you our 2021 Programs.
We hope to do some kind of production in the near future; how this will happen depends on the parameters of the public health guidelines, space availability, health and safety and other Covid related restrictions.
