Mission: To engage audiences with stories that represent the history and diversity of our region and its people.
For 59 years, Neptune Theatre has contributed to the cultural, social and economic well-being of Halifax and the province. For generations, audiences have delighted in the stories we share on our stages. As we look to the future, Neptune Theatre will embark on a journey of creative growth in which audiences will see more work from Atlantic Canadian and Canadian playwrights; stories that represent the diversity of our communities and region; accessible programming so that all can enjoy the experience of live theatre; and increased opportunities for the growth and development of emerging, local artists.
As Neptune moves into a new generation you will see new works that delight you, inspire you and challenge you. We invite you to be a part of an unforgettable theatrical experience.
Neptune Theatre is located on sacred land that has been the site of human activity for over 12,000 years. We are in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People, and we acknowledge them as the past, present, and future caretakers of this land.
As artists, we are grateful to work and build community here. As stewards of culture, we are in the process of learning more about how our company can improve our relations with Indigenous People and uphold the values of collaboration and inclusivity in all that we do.
Neptune Theatre is committed to fostering an environment of equity and diversity, and factor this into every decision we make. We encourage submissions from artists of all genders, ethnicities, abilities and identities.
Neptune is also committed to maintaining a positive, harassment-free work culture. Applying artists should be aware that we do not tolerate any form of harassment of our employees, clients, volunteers, or any persons visiting or spending time on its premises.
Neptune Theatre takes part in the Not in Our Space! initiative, a national anti-harassment and respectful workplace collaboration campaign between Equity and the Professional Association of Canadian Theatres (PACT), which seeks to ensure healthy and productive working conditions for all professionals working in live performance across the country.
We are committed to fostering an environment of equity and diversity do not tolerate any form of harassment on our online platforms. A violation could result in being blocked or banned from posting on the theatre’s social media accounts.
