Halifax Feast Dinner Theatre closing after 29 years
Long winter, decrease in revenue cited by owner Jim Petrie as reasons for closure
After 29 years in business, the Halifax Feast Dinner Theatre is closing its doors.
The company, located in the lower levels of the Maritime Centre on Barrington Street in Halifax, has produced more than 100 shows for the public.
"It is with deepest regret that the Halifax Feast Dinner Theatre must close its doors," wrote Jim Petrie, the owner and artistic director, on the group's Facebook page.
"Difficult economic times and the toughest winter to date provided little revenue and contributed to the closing of the theatre, which received no government or outside support in its long and successful run."
Petrie did not provide any further details.
