We’ve found a temporary home!

As you may have heard, after 36 years, Dartmouth Players has to move from the Sawmill Playhouse. We have spent the last year looking for a new home and although we haven’t found a permanent solution yet we are happy to announce that we have found a temporary new home at 327 Windmill Rd in Dartmouth, NS.

While not a performance space, it does have a rehearsal room as well as storage for our costumes and sets/props. We plan for at least the next season to operate out of this space while renting performance space until we can find a permanent home that has a performance space as well. We do have our 2022-23 season picked, however we’re still securing venues. As soon as they are confirmed we will be making a big announcement!

In 2020 we asked our patrons for help and were shocked with the outpouring of support from everyone. Because of the funds raised at that time we were able to stay open during the pandemic and continue to produce shows. We would not be here without you.

We now have to ask you for help again. With a move comes many costs. Our rent has doubled and we need to hire movers to help transport 36 years worth of accumulated props, sets and tech. We have to pay for venues and will likely have many unexpected costs.

As an added bonus, Canada Helps, who we run our donations through, is running a contest for the entire month of June. For every $1 donated, we get entered to win an additional $20,000. 

So, at this time, we would humbly ask you to help us keep community theatre alive in Dartmouth and support us anyway you can. If you are able to aid us please show your support by hitting the button below. We need supporters to get us through this challenging time. We can’t do what we do without you!
