Ship's Company Theatre

The MV Kipawo is the inspiration behind the Ship’s Company Theatre. This historic passenger and freight ferry, launched in 1924, was the first ship ever built by the St. John Drydock and Shipbuilding Company and the last ferry to provide service across the Minas Basin. This vessel was later purchased by the town of Parrsboro to house the local theatre. The ‘Ship’ is now an important hub for the production and development of Atlantic Canadian theatre. Each year they put on over 75 performances, concerts, camps, and activities for youth and adults.
