Last Chance! (for a bit)

2014HamletRehearsal111Tomorrow is our day off (first time this has happened in more than a week!), so expect excitement and high energies when you come to the show tonight! Because, why wouldn’t you?! The skies are clear, and the evening promises to be beautiful, and tomorrow is a holiday!

Third time’s a charm!

After two incredible shows, we’re just itching to give you a third.

71 bardfans showed up on Friday, and 126 last night! Show up early to beat the crowds! Will you be there tonight?

The actors prepare


This is what we look like before the show.


22 people dared those threatening clouds, and scoffed at the mud last night to watch our preview! And they left very happy.

Tonight we have our official opening, with reception to follow at DJ Purdy’s at the Delta Fredericton. Come for the show, and join the cast and crew afterwards for some.
It’s really close. You have no excuse.

Tonight’s preview IS A GO! 

You too can be as happy as these cheerful folk!


Looks like the rain is holding off, and despite last night’s drizzle we had 15 steadfast bardfans brave the rain.

This is your chance to see the splendour that is Bard in the Barracks’ Hamlet.

Preview Cancelled!

We tried to burn away the rain, but to no avail!
Tomorrow’s forecast is looking similarly dreary, but Andreas will redouble his efforts in pyromancy until those rain clouds melt away. Stay tuned for updates here, or follow us on facebook and twitter!2014HamletRehearsal169


Put some faces to all those names!


Big meeting before tonight’s run of the show


NB Acts Auditions

Auditions for this summer’s theatre festival will be taking place: Friday, June 20th, 5:30-7:30pm and Saturday, June 21st, 5:30-7:30pm. All auditions will be held at Memorial Hall on the UNB Campus, Fredericton. Anyone who is interested in auditioning but who cannot make one of these times is invited to contact NotaBle Acts by phone (458-7406) or by e-mail (nbacts@unb.ca).

Once again we have a very large number of plays to cast, meaning a need for a large number of actors. In fact, fourteen plays, including one-act plays, readings, short 10-minute and 20-minute plays will be cast at the auditions, with a large number of roles available for men and women of a variety of ages. With many of the plays being readings or staged plays in the 10-20 minute range,  you need not make a large time commitment to be involved.

We’d ask you to please share this call with anyone else who may be interested.

Further information about the festival, the shows, and auditions can be found on our website: www.nbacts.com

Rehearsing in the park!


If you hear strange noises in Odell park over the next few weeks, it’s probably just some harmless actors running scenes.
