Highland Arts Theatre, or “The HAT” as it’s affectionately called, is downtown Sydney’s premiere performance venue for theatre, music, dance, and the performing arts. Formerly the home of historical St. Andrew’s Church, the venue officially reopened in 2014 as a newly renovated, state-of-the-art performance space. In just a few short years, The HAT has become a consistently reliable professional theatrical presence in downtown Sydney, producing quality productions with a special emphasis on Cape Breton songs and stories.

  • Theatre, music and dance productions for everyone’s taste
  • All Mainstage tickets are now free-of-charge thanks to donations through our Radical Access Program.
