× It takes a village to raise a theatre... or something like that. That's why we're so grateful for every contribution that we receive. Please know that your support means the world to us and goes directly back into the work we're doing to create quality, professional theatre in downtown Sydney. Every dollar we receive means more that we can put into lights, costumes, scenery, and into the pockets of Cape Breton artists.

Mural Fundraising Campaign

× We're back and about to look more beautiful than ever!

After last summer's success in crowdsourcing some beautiful public art, the team from the HAT is at it again!

This year, we've set our sights on Bentinck St. and have commissioned a gorgeous new mural from our own resident technical director, Kayla Cormier! Work on the new mural has begun and we are planning to incorporate 10 new characters from 10 productions in this first phase of the new public work.

The new mural "broke paint" today on the corner of Bentinck and Prince along the side of the former St. Andrew's Hall. As work continues, you'll recognize some of your favourite characters from HAT productions, as well as some classic literary figures that have graced our stage. The sky truly is the limit for what we can achieve! But we need your help.

Last year, the people and businesses of Cape Breton came to the plate and this year we're hoping you'll do the same.

We're announcing the second edition of 100 Squared, our attempt to get 100 people or businesses to donate $100 to help with the cost of this project. Murals aren't cheap, and the equipment, supplies, and permits cost literally thousands of dollars.

If you are a business or an individual who wants to help the HAT grow and downtown Sydney revitalize, please consider donating. For $100, we will include your name on a plaque that will be placed at the base of the mural for the duration of its life.

If you want to be a part of 100 Squared, or you'd just like to donate the cost of your daily coffee to the cause, please contact us at (902) 565-3637, visit our office at 40 Bentinck St, or email us at engage@highlandartstheatre.com.

Radical Access Campaign

× Dear Friends of the HAT,

In just six years we’ve had tremendous success, but COVID-19 presents an unprecedented challenge. We want to rise to that challenge with something equally unprecedented. Something radical.

We want to be the first Professional Community-Funded Theatre in Canada.

We want to provide tickets to all 12 of our annual Mainstage Productions to anyone and everyone…

Free of charge.

The number one barrier to arts and especially theatre is socio-economic considerations. We want to eliminate that barrier completely, not just for the marginalized sectors of our community, but for everyone.

We need your help.

We are asking you to commit to a monthly donation at whatever level you are comfortable with: $5 a month, $25 a month, $100… no donation is too small or too big.

As a Not-for-Profit Charitable Organization, we’ll be able to offer you a Tax-Deductible Receipt at the end of the year. But you’ll also be making history as every donation puts us closer to fully funding our 12 Mainstage Productions and ensuring #RadicalAccess to anyone and everyone who steps foot in our theatre.It’s a radical proposal, but we believe it’s also incredibly doable.

If every one of our 1500 regular subscribers committed to a donation of only $25 per month, we would already be 75% of the way to our TIER 5 Goal. And with the tax-deduction from your receipt, you’d actually be paying less than the cost of all three seasonal Ticket Packages.

It’s a win-win, but we need you to believe.

Make your donation today. Prove us right and ensure the HAT will stand tall for years to come. Embrace the unprecedented and help us make history.
