Your seat is waiting.
They say that a great story is immersive. That it surrounds you. That’s exactly the power of a story told through film, theatre, and dance. And in New Brunswick, you can experience that power, and the artistry of our creative people, at theatres across the province. You’ll find world-class performances and memorable productions at Fredericton’s Playhouse, as well as at Moncton’s Capitol Theatre and Saint John’s Imperial Theatre – two stunning historical venues.
Let the creativity of choreographers and the grace of gifted dancers mesmerize you. From Moncton’s Atlantic Ballet Canada and DansEncorps Dance Company to Saint John’s Connection Dance Works, New Brunswick’s dance companies share their talent and passion for dance. Look for their performances or events at a venue near you.
Take a break, relax, and watch a movie. There are movie theatres in all of the province’s urban centres, and in the summertime, the fun often moves outdoors—so grab a blanket or folding chair and watch a movie under the stars. And if you just can’t get yourself out of that road trip state of mind, check out an old-fashioned drive-in.
Take a deeper dive into film at one of our respected film festivals. The annual Silver Wave Film Festival brings together producers, and independent filmmakers from NB. And FICFA (Festival international du cinéma francophone en Acadie) showcases films from the international Francophonie.
Live theatre is storytelling at its most incandescent. Provincial theatre companies such as Theatre New Brunswick and Théâtre populaire d'Acadie, as well as community theatre groups, showcase productions reflecting everyday life and the imagination of talented playwrights. You’ll also find fun dinner theatre options in Saint John and Moncton (get ready to be involved in the story!), and, of course, community theatre, where so many talented performers cut their teeth. For a truly Acadian experience—theatre, comedy, music, and food—you can’t miss Le Pays de la Sagouine in Bouctouche. Enter the world of la Sagouine where colourful characters give life to the work of Antonine Maillet!
