|Description & Services|
Since its inception, CentreStage has provided the Valley with not only good theatre but also with an outlet for the creative talents of it citizens. As a result, the theatre has garnered a large and dedicated following among the members of the theatre-going public. This has in turn inspired and energized those charged with the task of “running” the theatre to greater efforts to improve upon this wonderful gift. It was for this reason that those in a leadership role applied for and were granted status as a Society as defined under the Societies Act of Nova Scotia. By doing so, the Theatre looked to expanding the involvement of the theatre-going public in the actual running of the theatre. It also gave the theatre the opportunity to add an educational element to its mandate; consequently, workshop for adults and children have become part of the fabric of the theatre.
CentreStage now produces eight different plays a year, each of them running for six consecutive weekends on Friday and Saturday evenings.There are at least 2 matinees for each show.. The plays are a mix of comedies, mystery thrillers, musicals and warmhearted dramas. When one play is in production, the one following it is in rehearsal. The Society also offers theatre camps for children which usually results in a production that is presented to the general public.
While some regular cast members have professional experience in theatre, television, and film, their involvement with CentreStage is strictly on a volunteer basis and is done for the love of theatre. There are no paid employees, which makes it truly amazing that CentreStage Theatre is now in its 33st year of existence and has produced as of December 2016, 275 plays/musicals, involving a total of over 365 different actors/ actresses/ singers/ technicians in the Valley.
