Liverpool International Theatre Festival’s Special Christmas Offer
Liverpool, Nova Scotia. November 30, 2009
From May 19-23, 2010, the community of Liverpool, Nova Scotia will once again shine a spotlight on some of the world’s best theatrical performers at the Liverpool International Theatre Festival (LITF). Held at Liverpool’s famed Astor Theatre, the biennial festival is celebrating its tenth Anniversary with more entertainment than ever before. To mark the occasion, LITF is also offering a special Christmas ticket package as a thank-you to audience members.
In addition to the usual line-up of outstanding amateur theatre performers, LITF 2010 will feature activities for youth to enjoy, fantastic nightly entertainment, and the return of some of our audiences’ favourite troupes from past festivals. Several other special events and guest appearances are also planned.
On stage, the 2010 festival will see the return of the Teochew Drama Association from Singapore, who wowed audiences with their performances in 2000 and 2006; and Blackwood Little Theatre from Wales, who appeared at LITF 2008. Artistic Director Chris Heide has also accepted applications from Italy, France, Finland, the United States and the Faroe Islands. And, of course, the festival will host the best amateur theatre troupes from across Nova Scotia. While the exact line-up hasn’t been finalized yet, it’s definitely going to be 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. Attendees can also learn more about theatre craft by attending special Workshops.
