In addition to the usual line-up of outstanding amateur theatre performers, LITF 2012 will feature activities for young and old to enjoy, fantastic entertainment, and the return of some of our audiences’ favourite troupes from past festivals.
On stage, Artistic Director Eva Moore has invited award winning troupes from Germany, Poland and the United States, as well as Egypt, Japan, Georgia, South Africa and more. And, of course, the festival will host some of the best amateur theatre troupes from across Nova Scotia. Details regarding the 2012 line-up will be released in the New Year, but patrons can expect an exciting blend of international and local theatre.
Audience members will be able to mix and mingle with the theatre troupes at the Festival Club between and after plays, and join in critical discussions with playwrights, directors, and performers at the daily Coffee Critiques. An all-access pass to LITF 2012 is a great way to take full advantage of an “integrated theatre experience.” Normally priced at $180, the all-access pass is on sale from now until January 31, 2012, at a special Christmas promotional price of only $150. The all-access pass includes the following:
• A reserved seat for all festival plays (see note below)
• Free entrance to all Coffee Critiques and workshops
• Free admission to Festival Club
• A ballot to vote on the People’s Choice Award
NOTE: All-access pass buyers will receive a voucher representing their seat reservations. Once the exact performance lineup is finalized (a month or two before the festival), that voucher must be traded in at the Astor Theatre box office for individual tickets to all the plays.
If you act now, you’ll be able to enjoy this spectacular celebration of theatre from the best seats in the house. Purchase your subscription through the Astor Theatre box office, by phone at (902) 354-5250,or online at www.astortheatre.ns.ca.
