The most accessible presenter of live theatre in Atlantic Canada, Shakespeare by the Sea is dedicated to creating original works based on classic stories, and offers a full repertory season of outdoor summer productions.
Live theatre against the beautiful backdrop of Point Pleasant Park – it’s a highlight of the summer in Halifax, and one we’ve been proud to support since 2007.
Shakespeare by the Sea is one of the city’s treasures. People of all ages love the award-winning performances, the energy of watching a live performance, and the stunning ‘stage’ that the park provides.
We are proud to be a long-time partner of the troupe, providing financial and in-kind support in a number of ways to help sustain this amazing opportunity for young actors, and of course, to ensure that as many people as possible get out to enjoy the plays.
We are proud of the work of this troupe, the young actors and actresses who throw themselves into these roles, and Elizabeth Murphy and Jesse MacLean whose passion and persistence make it all possible year after year.
