Ship’s Company Theatre: Celebrating 25 Years of the Theatrical Arts in Parrsboro

At first thought, the idea of having a theatre on the deck of an old Bay of Fundy Ferry might have seemed a bit unorthodox, however in the 25 years since the idea was first conceived, the Ship’s Company Theatre has become the most critically acclaimed theatre in Atlantic Canada. The Company now boosts two stage performances, a summer concert series, a reading series and a children’s drama camp.

To celebrate their anniversary the theatre will be hosting a series of events in late July and early August. Included in the line up is a showing of the works of photographer Thaddeus Holownia on July 31, the Summer of Handley Page and a musical celebration of Hank Williams on August 1st. There will also be a lobster boil at Ottawa House by the Sea on August 2.

For a complete line up of the summer’s plays and events go to: or call: 1-800-565-SHOW.
