The Bauer Theatre Ghost gets his own play

Event Type: Virtual    MEMBER TYPE: Professional

By Andrea Boyd and Laura Teasdale

Hector the Spectre Steals the Show is a six-part radio play written by Festival Antigonish artistic director Andrea Boyd and local actor/playwright Laura Teasdale. The story is based on the legend of the Bauer Theatre’s resident ghost, Hector, and is inspired by real stories collected from artists and community members of all ages who have had encounters with Hector over the last 30 years.

The play imagines a world where live theatre still happens, and where Festival Antigonish is producing a new play about the legendary ghosts – Blue Nun and Red Priest. But when Hector, the benevolent ghost of the theatre, sees that this ghost story on stage is not about him, he takes matters into his own hands.
