Supporting Neptune

Be bold with your donation! Your support is vital to enable Neptune to tell inspring stories for years to come.  In giving to Neptune, you are supporting a vibrant arts and education centre. It is through your generous support that we evolve and thrive.

Whether you are an individual wishing to make a donation, or a company seeking sponsorship opportunities, your support is invaluable to our continuing efforts to deliver exceptional plays and educational opportunities to the widest possible audience.

Producing great theatre isn’t for the faint of heart. It takes a multi-million dollar investment  of resources and talent. With your bold donation, here’s what we can do:

  • A BRAVO CLUB donation of $100 pays the cost of one specialized light bulb for our stage lights.

  • Each year, Neptune Theatre uses more than 50 of these bulbs to light up the action on stage!

  • An OVATION donation of $250 pays for five of the 200 of cans of paint we will use this season to create our vibrant sets.

  • An ENCORE donation of $500 pays one-third of the cost of bringing our annual Young Company Tour to a Nova Scotian school. The tour – now in its 37th year – touches the lives of 20,000 students annually.

  • An AMBASSADOR CLUB donation of $1,000 pays for the costumes for one actor in our holiday production.

  • A PREMIERE CLUB donation of $2,500 pays for the cost of two of the 20 wireless microphones that are needed to stage Neptune’s regional premiere of the musical ONCE.

  • A TRIDENT CLUB donation of $10,000 helps us heat, light and maintain Neptune’s 46,000 square foot theatre complex for two weeks.

It's easy to contribute and even a little goes a long way. Click here to donate online or call our Box Office at (902) 429-7070 or (800) 565-7345.  Check out the various donor level benfits. 

For over 50 years, we've been a part of Nova Scotia’s culture and heritage. We are proud to be Atlantic Canada’s largest professional regional theatre and honored to be considered an asset to the city of Halifax.

“...Neptune Theatre is the only place in Nova Scotia to sit back and enjoy a great evening of laughter, feelings of sadness or hope, or just plain and simply shock and awe. All of which is made possible by extremely talented actors and actresses, amazing set designs and costumes, and just the overall welcoming and relaxing atmosphere that is Neptune Theatre.”
