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.
This year's ceremony takes place on Monday, March 30th, at 8:00 PM in the McInnes Room, Dalhousie Student Union.
