Bell Festival Summer Theatre | Bell Homestead

For the 12th season now, Brant Theatre will be bringing the Bell Summer Theatre Festival to audiences once again. The theatre space is on the grounds of the Bell Homestead National Historic Site.

As the show takes place outdoors, (weather permitting) on the front porch of the Bell Homestead, audiences are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy the magic of live theatre under the stars!

Admission to all performances is on a pay-what-you-can basis.

The season opens with a classic tale for all ages. Puss and Boots is written by Peter Muir and directed by Neo Moore. This production takes place June 29 and June 30 at 7pm, July 1 at 4pm, July 5 and 6 at 7pm and July 7 at 4pm, July 12 and 13 at 7 pm and July 14 at 4pm. 

Puss in Boots bring the entire audience with him as Puss battles an ogress to bring love and riches to his friend, Simon. This production is suitable for all ages and promises fun as the wily cat has to save himself and Simon through a contest of riddles with the hairy ogress. Brant Theatre Workshops have taken the original fairy tale and added their own fantastical twists to the tale.

Come join in the fun as Puss and Simon make their way to the enchanted castle to win the heart of a princess. This tale of rags to riches is perfect to bring the whole family to.
