From its inception 44 years ago, the Blyth Festival's goal was to be known for live original Canadian theatre that endeavours to enrich the lives of its audience by producing and developing plays that give voice to both the region and the country. The Festival produces a repertory summer season of exclusively Canadian theatre, with an emphasis on new work.
Coast to coast, this notion has become synonymous with what the Blyth Festival is, and what it stands for.
The plays in 2018 strengthen this notion with five shows on the main stage and two presentations in the studio theatre. In addition to the Blyth Festival, the Centre includes an Art Gallery that showcases three professional exhibits, a non-juried community show, and a student exhibit each season. Choristers participate in the professionally led Blyth Festival Singers and musicians from three counties form the Blyth Festival Orchestra.
With an extended calendar of performances, there are plenty of opportunities to visit Blyth this summer. To see a full description of the 2018 Blyth Festival Season, please visit their website.
