First of all, our most sincere thanks for your patience.  Although we have solved some of our rescheduling problems, there are a few that we are still working on.

The following are the rescheduled productions:

THE COMIC STRIPPERS:

The COMIC STRIPPERS originally rescheduled for JUNE 4, 2021 has now been cancelled.   If you were a ticket holder for this show, please give us a call at the Box Office 902-742-8150 to process your refund.  We thank you for your patience as it will take some time to get every refund processed.  

ABBA :

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.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

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 as planned. The team at Th’YARC are 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.”

Warden Leland Anthony echo’s Mr. Bonnar’s statement, adding, “The Municipality is pleased to work with Th’YARC. The decision of Council to sell the divested school building to the Yarmouth Arts Regional Council is a responsible stewardship decision with significant cultural benefits.”
