North Shore Players 

Community theatre in Tatamagouche! The North Shore Players and Performing Arts was created with these goals in mind:

  • To give area residents who have an interest in theatre and the other performing arts a chance to participate in and contribute to them; to provide an outlet for the existing creative talent in the area – including writers, actors, designers, dancers, musicians, and theatre technicians -and to stimulate and develop new talent.
  • To offer quality live entertainment to the residents of the North Shore, both by producing shows locally and by bringing in performing groups from elsewhere.
  • To give the young people of the area a grounding in and an appreciation for the performing arts.

In working toward these goals, North Shore Performing Arts intends to be as inclusive as possible, offering productions that will appeal to a wide range of tastes and ages and utilizing performers and volunteers of all ages and backgrounds, so that those who are less experienced can benefit from working alongside those with more experience.
