It's been only a hot minute but we feel like we as a community need to celebrate again!

Maybe it's because the sun is shining more these days and we want to show off our outfits? Maybe because it's especially a time of year to show our pride? Maybe it's because we've been watching Tales of a City and want to surround ourselves with Tales of THIS City.

Whatever it is, we should all come together and party. Heist joins forces with Chainyard Cider to bring you Heist Takeover IV. This is a night where the Heist team invites you to come into the space and see old friends, make new ones, watch some drag performances, dress in whatever makes you feel good, show off and celebrate who you are, get on the dance floor and own the night.

DJ DOUVET on the decks all night!

Performances throughout the night by:

SPECIAL GUEST PERFORMANCE by the newly crowned Mx. Queer Halifax PAT MCCOX!

The party game LIP SYNC ROULETTE will return to the floor. Who wants to try their hand this time? Prizes will be awarded to lip sync roulette participants!

Admission is by donation at the door.
The night begins at 9:30pm.

New Waterford Boy: A Ceilidh

Richie Wilcox's original show is back by popular demand at Ship's Company Theatre for only two nights - July 31 and August 1. 

New Waterford Boy features New Waterford homegrown talents Richie Wilcox and Lynn MacIntryre (both from up 12 colliery neighbourhood) along with Sydney drummer extraordinaire Jordan Bruleigh and two come from away talents - Aaron Collier, from PEI (an islander, at least) who was the keyboardist for The Jimmy Swift Band and Sarah Richardson (from Ontario) who is a lead singer of The Black Rats.

New Waterford Boy played to two sold out crowds in Halifax in May and recently enjoyed a popular two-show stint in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia at Ship’s Company Theatre as well as at Wilcox's old highschool, Breton Education Centre. 

The performance is a kitchen party where Wilcox tells personal tales of being Rita MacNeil’s nephew for a week, conquering first kisses at junior high dances, the inner workings of Canadian Idol (which he took part in Season One) and more as he also belts Cape Breton classic tunes from Allister MacGillivray, the Rankin Family and more songs we all know, all night long. Backed by his band made up of friends, the two act show pays tribute to the traditional Cape Breton culture while making way for the people of Cape Breton today, here and now.
