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 throughout the year, and exceptional performances, direction, design and more are honoured the following March.
The event also features special presentations: Theatre Nova Scotia Legacy Award, Volunteer Award, TNS Scholarship, Neptune's Wes Daniels Design Award and the Neptune Chrysalis Emerging Artist Award.
Tickets for the awards show are open to the public.
