Live Bait Theatre is excited to be launching the second half of our 2021/22 season which will include events from March to May of 2022. Programming includes Mainstage Productions, a Presentation Series, a Young Company production, and shows touring to St Andrews New Brunswick and Shelbourne NS.
“We are very fortunate to have received some special reopening funding from the Department of Canadian Heritage”, said Live Bait President Cynthia Spurles. “With other funding partners, this has enabled us to put together a staggering amount of exciting work in a condensed period. We really do have something for everyone!”.
The shows begin on March 19 with the online presentation of “Cinnamon and the Trolls & Other Stories” by the Live Bait Young Company. The play, aimed at young people from grades one to eight, recounts some original stories and some well-known myths and fairy tales told with an environmental twist.
Tomato Tomato, one of New Brunswick’s best loved musical acts, will kick off the Presentation Series with a concert at the beautiful Vogue Cinema also on March 19, and the first mainstage production of the season will be the hilarious Shakespearean spoof “The Good, the Bard and the Ugly”. GBU, as it is affectionately known, will play at the Sackville Legion from March 23 – 26. GBU will also be performed at the Osprey Centre in Shelbourne NS on April 2 and 3 at 7:30 p m.
The second play of the Presentation Series, “Lucien in Trumpland”, starring Marshall Button, will play at the Vogue Cinema on World Theatre Day (March 27), and the final show of the Presentation Series, the exciting movement based heist show “81 Minutes”, presented by Falling Iguana Theatre and the Notable Acts Theatre Festival, will be presented on April 23 at the Sackville Legion.
On April 29 and 30 at the Riverview Arts Centre “Three Short Plays About Northrup Frye” will be presented as part of the annual Frye Literary Festival. And the final mainstage production, the World Premiere of the play “Aloria Mae” by Sue Rose, a haunting tale of love, family secrets and redemption, will be presented at Mount Allison’s Motyer-Fancy Theatre from May 4 – 8.
The final event of Live Bait’s 2021/2022 season will be the performance of the moving and powerful play “Love Letters” on May 14 in collaboration with the St Andrews Arts Council at the beautiful Dominion Hill Country Inn in St Andrews.
