NEW BRUNSWICK – Two New Brunswick theatres are working to get the artists in the community back on their feet after Covid-19 through pilot projects – The Incubator Project at the Imperial Theatre in Saint John and InterMISSION at the Playhouse in Fredericton.

“One of the things that was most prominent in the news was how hard our industry as a whole was hit,” Angela Campbell, the executive director of the Imperial Theatre, said.

“But also in the immediate aftermath of closures, how much artists were affected by suddenly not being able to work in any capacity.”

The Incubator Project is taking advantage of the theatre being closed to private events and allowing artists to use the space to create new work or rehearse.
