In July 2016, over 100 people came together to make something extraordinary: a traveling, outdoor performance along the banks of the River Clyde in New Glasgow. This was the very first River Clyde Pageant, which brought together a diverse community to create a performance that featured stilt-walkers, giant puppets, a choir, trolls & mermaids, a Mi’kmaq drum group, and a bagpiper in a fishing dory. Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of a month-long crowdfunding campaign to make the 2017 River Clyde Pageant come to life, with more shows, more public workshops and more ways to get involved! Our campaign features a beautiful video made by our friends Patrick Callbeck & Alexis Bulman, which we are proud to release today too!
We’ve got some amazing perks available for donors, including a limited number of early bird specials that include presale tickets and even a rowboat ride and picnic on the river! Donate to the campaign and help us make theatre magic happen on the River Clyde for a second year! Together, we will WAKE THE RIVER CLYDE! Follow the progress on facebook!
