EFFECTIVE MARCH 21, 2022 in accordance with Phase 3 of the re-opening Nova Scotia plan, gathering limits, social distancing and mask restrictions imposed by
NS Health and the Province of Nova Scotia, will be lifted.
We are pleased to announce that we will be reopening to 100% capacity in the theatre.
If you currently have tickets for any of the shows that were postponed and rescheduled, they will be honoured on the new show dates.
Theatre seats, washrooms and all surfaces will continue to be sanitized before and after each show.
Hand sanitizing stations will also be available.


As Nova Scotians we are resilient.  Getting back to our new normal will be an adjustment,
and together, we will get there.



First of all, our most sincere thanks for your patience during the past two years.

The following are the rescheduled productions:


ABBA Revisited scheduled for June 9, 2021 has been rescheduled for June 9th, 2022.  We have been assured that the show will not be cancelled....just postponed. 

If you have already purchased tickets for this show, they will be honoured on June 9th, 2022. However, if you would rather cancel your tickets, we will be happy to refund you. 

But please keep in mind that this show was sold out, and we have a waiting list, so no doubt if you change your mind and want to repurchase tickets, the likely hood of any being available is very slim.  


CYRUS ReWiRed! originally scheduled for  Thursday March 24th, has been rescheduled to Thursday September 22nd, 2022 at 7:30 pm.  We ask that if you have purchased tickets for this show, please hang onto them as they will be honoured on the new show date.   


 (originally scheduled for June 2020) have rescheduled for June 3rd, 2022.  All seats purchased for the original date will be honoured on the new date.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call us at 902-742-8150 or email  

Thanks again for your patience.  Stay safe.


Leveraging Community Assets – A Shared Vision and Good Stewardship

Th’YARC (Yarmouth Arts Regional Council) and the Municipality of the District of Yarmouth share a vision for the future use of the former Arcadia School. Rural communities experience revitalization when well-equipped assets are fully utilized– the transformation of a building from a school to a multi-use play house, creative labs and cultural centre in a growing community is a great example.

Th’YARC and the Municipality of the District of Yarmouth continue to execute the terms of their Purchase and Sale agreement. The team at Th’YARC is excited about proceeding with their vision for the facility. Confirming the vision for the move, President Mitch Bonnar stated, “Th’YARC wants to create a vibrant, inclusive space, both indoors and outdoors, where residents and visitors alike can enjoy the cultural diversity and talent-rich communities of the area. This region is rich in both artistic capacity and cultural diversity. Celebrating and advancing this is the vision for the new location for Th’YARC.”
