Our team keeps growing!!
And we're so excited that our team now includes Amelia George @amemelia_g as our new Assistant Technical Director & Custodian 💪
Amelia graduated from Acadia University’s Theatre Production program in 2019 with a concentration in projection/video design. That being said, she can often be found doing a little bit of everything from lighting, to set and prop construction, costumes, stage management, painting, and whatever needs doing in-between. Since graduating, she has worked with several local companies across Nova Scotia/Mi’kma’ki, including The Villains Theatre, Ship’s Company Theatre, The Bus Stop Theatre, Valley Summer Theatre, and Quick as a Wink Theatre Society. Incapable of sitting still, Amelia is constantly in pursuit of new ways to create and present theatre that pushes boundaries.

❤️💛💚Happy Black Herstory Month!❤️💛💚

-Video Caption-
Hello everybody! Madeleine Tench from the Bus Stop Theatre board here, wanting to wish you all a happy Black History/Black Herstory month.

I know that February can be a tough time for many of us, myself included, because of the weather, but we have wonderful Grandfather sun here giving us energy and warmth. We can use this time to learn about the exploitation and oppression of Black African people, but also to celebrate and remember how much Black African culture has enriched the world and how much we’ve given.

So I will share something I found recently. I discovered a musical from the 1970s written by a Black woman named Micki Grant. It’s called “Dont Bother Me, I Cant Cope.” It’s a great show, I’ll share the soundtrack below. Please listen to it and learn more about Micki Grant.

Let’s celebrate Black African Culture and keep moving together. I’ll be back with more Black Herstory soon. Black Lives Matter, Every Child Matters, Thank you Black people. Take care. I’m sending love.
