In scenic and touristy Trinity the Rising Tide Theatre 2012 season is well underway, and the provincial government wants people to know they partially funded the stage shows.
Seasons in the Bight 2012 received a $75,000 grant through the cultural economic development program.
Tourism, Culture and Recreation Minister Derrick Dalley said in a news release the season offers incredible theatre that celebrates the province’s culture.
“This dynamic festival has entertained audiences for almost 35 years. I commend the efforts of organizers and wish them the best for another successful season,” he said.
The government’s financial support is greatly appreciated by Rising Tide Theatre’s artistic and executive director Donna Butt.
“Investment by the provincial government allows us to continue to provide the kind of theatrical experience that has become synonymous with Rising Tide. This endorsement allows us to continue to be a regional economic generator and employer, a mentor of student performers, and to produce works that celebrate our heritage and our culture,” she said.
The Trinity theatre season runs until Sept. 2.
