Cape Breton University’s Boardmore Theatre is currently preparing for its 44 Season of Plays with an official launch party on September 10, 2014 at 12:00 p.m. in the Boardmore Playhouse and  gearing up for auditions for the upcoming season.

The community is invited to visit the Boardmore Theatre and hear about the 2014/2015 season of plays, listen to readings and songs from the main stage productions, meet this year’s directors, and enjoy a light lunch.  At this time members of the community will also be able to check out a sneak preview of the upcoming season of the CBU Art Gallery to learn more about upcoming exhibitions and events.

The community is welcome to attend the launch party and learn more about all the new and exciting things that are in store for the 2014/2015 season.”
