Province investing $355K to help Bus Stop Theatre complete major renovations

The Bus Stop Theatre, a multi-use performance venue located on Gottingen Street in Halifax, is receiving $355,000 in funding to complete its major renovations.

The province said the work will begin once the building is acquired from its current owners. It will include renovations to the front facade, lobby, theatre space and dressing rooms as well as electrical and plumbing upgrades.

“The renovations support not only the Bus Stop Theatre but also the more than 70 different groups and shows that use its space annually,” said Communities, Culture and Heritage Minister Leo Glavine.

“This space is vital to the Bus Stop Theatre’s operations and to those of many organizations who have a need for affordable performance and rehearsal space in Halifax.”

The theatre is the only independently operated, accessible, professionally equipped, flexible performance space in Halifax and is a resource for emerging and professional artists and organizations. It has been in operation since 2003.
