The Theatre Arts Guild is pleased to announce its inaugural Spring Festival. The beloved Pond Playhouse will be home to an array of family friendly performances from the Halifax community over two consecutive weekends: May 24-26 and May 31-June 1.

The first weekend, you can dance to live cover tunes from The Purcells Cove String Band Friday, and The Retrobeats on Saturday. Sunday May 26, join us for the 2nd annual Jollimore Day community festival: a free event that includes tours of the theatre, a plant exchange, games for kids, the Tartan Coffee Truck, a food stall from the Maritime Sikh Society, live music and more.

The second weekend features the Maritime Conservatory of Performing Arts World Music Group, directed by Daniel MacNeil, beloved duo Wayne MacIntyre and Maria Alley, excerpts from JL Ilsley High School’s Mean Girls musical, and more!

Proceeds from the Spring Festival will help offset the lost revenue and support TAG's ongoing efforts to promote the arts in Halifax.

If you aren’t a TAG member yet, you can join at TAG Membership. Memberships purchased between April 13th and the close of the Spring Festival will be extended to include the 2024-2025 TAG season. All memberships are $15.

Thank You!

To our recent donors:

TAG extends our heartfelt gratitude to those who generously supported our Make it Monthly and Seat Sale campaigns. Your contributions demonstrate your commitment to our mission of bringing quality theatre to our community, and we are truly grateful.

TAG has been working hard to rebuild our financial base following the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. While we had hoped that the relaxation of restrictions would allow us to regain our security, the unfortunate postponement of our final two planned productions for the season have presented a new obstacle. The loss of expected ticket income has placed a strain on our finances, but thanks to supporters like you, we remain determined to maintain our mortgage and debt-free status. Your ongoing support allows us to plan for the future with confidence and ensures that we can continue to enrich the lives of our community through the power of theatre.

Please know that your generosity does not go unnoticed. As a registered charity, TAG or CanadaHelps will issue you receipts for income tax purposes, and we are committed to being transparent and accountable for every dollar donated.

Once again, thank you for your generosity and commitment. Your partnership means the world to us, and we look forward to keeping you updated on the impact of your contributions.

Yours truly
Bill VanGorder, Fundraising Chair
