Repertory Theatre Schedule - This show runs from July 10 to August 24. See producer's website for schedule details.

The film features 200 camels, 2,500 horses and over 10,000 extras. This hilarious adaption of the vengeful saga includes the same grandiose scenes and heroic characters, but only four determined actors ready to take on the might of the Roman empire. They navigate through palaces, galley ships, and the Coliseum, while an onstage romance threatens to topple everything. Ben Hur is a gigantic task for these brave actors, and they promise to do their very, very best. 

Directed by Andrea Boyd and featuring Henricus Gielis, Rachel Hastings, Matt Lacas and Wally MacKinnon.

Relaxed & Sensory Friendly Performance - July 24th.

July 10th is PWYC.

Matinee - August 10th and August 22nd.

Produced by: Festival Antigonish Summer Theatre
