Theatre ex­tends run of three plays

Shows well-re­ceived by au­di­ences

Cape Breton Post - - ARTS/ENTERTAINMENT -

The High­land Arts Theatre is ex­tend­ing three of its four sum­mer sea­son plays due to pop­u­lar de­mand.

“Heart of Steel,” “Ma­ture Young Adults,” and “No Great Mis­chief ” have been well re­ceived by au­di­ences through­out its five-week run in July.

The theatre says “Heart of Steel” had sell­outs on sev­eral nights.

Pa­trons are be­ing en­cour­aged to book ahead to avoid dis­ap­point­ment in this fi­nal stretch of the run, the theatre says.

Through July, the High­land Art Theatre of­fered a sum­mer deal of three plays for $39. This will be the fi­nal week to pur­chase tick­ets un­der this dis­count, which ends July 31.

Reg­u­lar price for “Ma­ture Young Adults” and “No Great Mis­chief ” is $25, while “Heart of Steel” tick­ets range from $25-$40 with stu­dent and se­nior dis­counts.

The weekly Sun­day show, “The True Mean­ing of Cape Bre- ton,” has been forced to end its run as orig­i­nally sched­uled due to sched­ul­ing con­flicts with cast mem­bers.

The fi­nal show will be this Sun­day at 8 p.m. Fol­low­ing the play, there will be mu­si­cal per­for­mances by lo­cal bands The Jaynes and the Danny MacNeil Band.

This event will be li­censed and cover for the bands is in­cluded in the price of ad­mis­sion, or $10 at the door af­ter 10 p.m.

All four pro­duc­tions are sto­ries by Cape Bre­ton play­wrights, fea­tur­ing Cape Bre­ton per­form­ers and were cho­sen to show­case var­i­ous as­pects of the is­land.

Start­ing Aug. 6, Kather­ine Wood­ford will be tak­ing over as the lead hero­ine, Amelia MacPher­son, in “Heart of Steel.”

Wood­ford was last seen star­ring as Cin­derella in the Savoy Theatre’s pro­duc­tion of “Into the Woods” in May. She re­places Mar­garet MacPher­son who will be tour­ing across Nova Sco­tia as a per­former in “The Cape Bre­ton Re­vue: The Next Gen­er­a­tion.”
