Stage Prophets

Fall 2022

Building a community of joy where everyone is welcome to experience the exceptional.

OUR CORNERSTONES

Belief

Gratitude

Belonging

No one is greater or lesser

20th Anniversary Show in June 2022

In keeping with the Stage Prophets vision of “Building a community of joy where everyone is welcome to experience the exceptional” we were so honored to take the stage this past June of 2022 to perform our 20th Anniversary Production at the Festival Theatre in Wolfville. This production highlighted our favorite moments from every show we have performed since our inception in 2002. We were able to “build a community of joy” with our cast and crew who reflected on our four cornerstones (Belief, Gratitude, Belonging, No one is greater or lesser) throughout the process. Our larger community came together to both laugh and cry with us throughout each show. To assist in making our production “exceptional” we were fortunate to have Amelia Scott (video designer, projection technologist, and new media artist) create amazing projections as our backdrop to help set each scene. Overall it was a joyful experience to come together again after such a long time apart!

It's important to note that this is a living document as outlined by the following statement at the end: Staying true to the essence of our vision, we are committed to revisiting this living document to ensure that we are mindful of the needs of our growing community. This statement is an act that we choose to continue to uphold in an ever changing world.

Is Stage Prophets New To You?


For those of you who don’t know, Stage Prophets Theatrical Society is a not-for-profit amateur musical theatre company that operates in the beautiful Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. For almost 20 years we have been dedicated to creating and sharing volunteer-created professional-level live theatre with and for our community. We produce a large extravagantly staged Broadway-style live musical in the spring at the beautiful Festival Theatre in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. Past productions include Godspell, Joseph, and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Les Misérables, Beauty and the Beast, Oliver, and many more.

From its humble beginnings in 2003 with 16 youth wearing tie-dyed t-shirts in a church basement, Stage Prophets has evolved into a large-scale community-based organization whose vision is:

“Building a community of joy where everyone is welcome to experience the exceptional”

Our mandate is to offer family-friendly, high-quality musical theatre productions, workshops, and events for the children, youth, adults, and seniors in our community. Our productions are a chance to participate in theatre and experience the thrill of bringing a story to life. Our goal is to involve a very large group of people (sometimes in the hundreds) in an artistic opportunity that incorporates learning, intergenerational interaction, diversity, and cultural awareness in a welcoming, inclusive environment that addresses barriers to participation.

We are a registered charity advised by a Board of Directors and guiding principles. Our funding comes solely from ticket sales, grants, sponsorships, and donations. Since 2002, Stage Prophets has mounted an annual musical theatre production. This preparation process involves everyone who wants to participate regardless of their capabilities, either onstage in the performance and/or in the myriad of offstage components that go into a show. We prioritize an atmosphere where everyone feels valued and has opportunities to share of themselves. From that community of tightly-knit, supportive and passionate individuals, an amazing collective production emerges.
