Chester Playhouse General Manager
The Chester Playhouse is a year-round, iconic performing arts venue located in Chester, NS, known for showcasing established and emerging professional musicians and theatre, presenting movies and independent films, and welcoming youth and community talent to the stage.
The Playhouse is highly integrated with the local hospitality and tourism economy, presenting 85-90 events per year with 7,000 patron visits. Audience members, many of whom travel to events from across the broader region, enjoy services in Chester before or after performances.
This historic 82-year old building with 172-seats is currently undergoing a million dollar plus restoration and will reopen in June, 2021. This project will upgrade all performance features and will improve patron accessibility. Please refer to www.chesterplayhouse.ca for additional details.
