“Love, hope, laughter - we’re so excited to be bringing Atlantic Canadians a brand new season of emotional stories on stage,” said Artistic Director George Pothitos. “Neptune’s 50th Season has been very special and it’s an honor to help lead the theatre into the next fifty years.”

After a Golden Anniversary Season celebrating the theatre’s storied past, Pothitos says he’s looking forward to the future.

“Heading into our 51st year, it’s full steam ahead with shows never before seen in Halifax, one very beloved return and tons of new Canadian work I’m proud to share. Don’t miss a moment.”

Neptune’s season-ending musical spectacular Legally Blonde: The Musical is now playing in Fountain Hall until May 26 (cannot be held over). Eighteen, the final Studio Series production of the season by Halifax’s Michael Melski, plays May 1-12. It’s a new comedy about a Nova Scotia couple who accidentally discover the Fountain of Youth.

Now in its 50th season, Neptune Theatre inspires audiences with great stories. Located at 1593 Argyle Street, Halifax, Neptune boasts two stages: Fountain Hall and the Studio Theatre; a year round Theatre School; and a province-wide Young Neptune Company Tour.

Charles Hsuen

Even after almost 30 years as the voice of jazz in Halifax, Charles Hsuen shows no signs of slowing down. His passion to preserve and promote the genre to listeners of all ages cannot be overstated. Recently we spoke with Hsuen about his roots, and his life-long love of big band, bebop, swing, Sinatra and more.
What are your own roots? My roots derive from a rather mixed background. My father is of Vietnamese / Tibetan / Chinese heredity, but grew up in India, before immigrating to Canada in 1967. While my mother’s roots stem from Indo-China, she grew up in Brunei before immigrating to Canada in 1969. Both extended families ultimately settled in Toronto and my parents met and married in the early 1970's. The last name “Hsuen” (now XUAN), pronounced “Schwen,” comes from the Last Emperor of China Henry Pu Yi who ruled using the name Xuantong from 1909 until his forced abdication in 1912. The story was of a tumultuous reign, his forced resignation and eventual attempt to reclaim his ti…

Danny Bilsborough

Danny Bilsborough, NSCC alumna and owner of Danny B Studios, has spent most of her days consulting various clients on software options for their new business endeavours. 
Although she’s been involved with assessing some really exciting projects, nothing makes her happier than grabbing her brush and splashing colour on a canvas. That’s why she’s decided to take the plunge into becoming a full-time artist.
“I was always so scared to try using colour, but when my daughter was born and the opportunity came to incorporate these new palettes into her life, they quickly found their way into mine,” she says.
Colour brings light to many things and gives people a sense of enjoyment. Markus Maier explained in his academic journal titled Color Psychology that colour carries great meaning and can have an important impact on people's affect, cognition and behaviour.
Bilsborough’s favourite pieces to create are those of nature and animals – a quick look at her online Etsy page confirms this. She be…


Commemorating the 40th Anniversary of the passing of Elvis Presley, International World-Champion Elvis tribute artist, Thane Dunn and his Cadillac Kings, will perform seven shows throughout the Maritimes over the coming months. Recently we spoke with the King of Kings about his passion and profession.
What are your roots? I was born in Moncton, New Brunswick. I've lived everywhere from California to Toronto but Moncton always has had a special place in my heart. My musical roots have always been early Rock and Roll and also old Country and Western like Buck Owens and Stonewall Jackson. I’ve always been a huge Jim Morrison fan. He had a lot of similar traits to Elvis.
What first inspired the Elvis tribute? I always loved the man and I’ve had people tell me I looked like him and in early bands I was in people would say I sounded like him. I had a few months leading up to the decision to do it where it seemed every time I turned on the TV there was Elvis, the radio would be playing Elvis…
