Throughout the pandemic, our commitment to a comfortable, safe and engaging experience never changed – but doing so safely required careful attention to important health and safety measures. For those who wish them, we are pleased to offer mandatory masking protocol for select Sunday performances and we will maintain additional safety measures outlined below:

  • Enhanced cleaning/disinfecting of all our guest and staff areas.
  • Sanitation stations at all venues.
  • Regular sanitizing of high-touch surfaces throughout the theatre facilities.
  • Disposable masks will be available.
  • Exchange fees waived should you feel ill and need to reschedule your performance date.

 American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreted Performances

On select dates throughout the season, Neptune Theatre offers ASL-interpreted performances for the Deaf and hearing-impaired members of our community. These performances feature real-time ASL interpretation by a team of qualified interpreters, working alongside the action of the play. Whether in Fountain Hall or on the Scotiabank Stage, our teams work to create a fully realized theatre experience that can be enjoyed by both Deaf and hearing audiences.

  • When booking tickets by phone at 902-429-7070 or by email at, members of the Deaf community should identify themselves in order to ensure optimal seating for sightlines of the interpreters as well as the action.
  • Hearing persons can purchase tickets to the ASL-interpreted performance like any other, except in the section reserved for ASL audiences. Remaining seats in this section will be released to the general public 48 hours prior to the performance.
  • If no one has requested tickets in the ASL section 48 hours before the show, the ASL interpreters will be canceled and the performance will proceed as any other.

Throughout the season, Neptune Theatre offers relaxed performances, which are designed to welcome audience members who would benefit from a more relaxed environment, including (but not limited to) those with sensory sensitivities, learning differences, autism spectrum disorder, and first-time theatregoers. Minor production changes are made to reduce startling effects and there is a relaxed attitude towards audience noise and movement. We invite all patrons to come, be themselves and experience live theatre!
