The idea of having a quality, year-round community theatre was the dream of Allen Hume, Susan Munro, Jerry Morine, Chloris Morine, Gertrude Bishop, Arlo Moen, and Diana Bishop. From 1984 to 1998 this group, along with many, many volunteers produced and presented a total of 112 plays, all but the first six of them at the Theatre in Centre Square, Kentville. When they decided to take a break, they turned the company over to another talented and enthusiastic group of individuals who, along with several others and countless volunteers, have worked tirelessly to provide the Valley with a first-rate community theatre. It was under the direction of this new group that many of the changes that have come about since 1998 have occurred.

We are a community theatre, which means we are your friends, neighbors, and co-workers…and we would be devastated if someone were to become ill through their interactions with the theatre. So we are going to do our best to ensure your, and our, health and safety.


MASK USE – As per provincial regulations (and our own policies), masks are highly recommended to be worn at out theatre.

Remember, with a (hopefully) full house, you will be sitting, listening, laughing and crying beside somebody you might not even know, for 2 hours. We want that to be the safest and most enjoyable two hours it can be, without worrying about health and the cares of the world.
