About the Awards

The Merritt Awards celebrate Nova Scotia’s outstanding talent in the theatre industry. Named for the late Dalhousie Theatre professor, Robert Merritt, the awards were established in 2002 and annually highlight the wealth and calibre of theatre creation and production in the province.

Professional productions are juried by a committee throughout the year, and exceptional performances, direction, design and more are honoured the following March.

Tickets for the awards show are open to the public.
