Highland Arts Theatre Offers Welcoming Promotion to Newcomers

On Cape Breton Island, there is no shortage of artistic talent. The Highland Arts Theatre provides a space for artists and community members to gather.

Highland Arts Theatre

Highland Arts Theatre, or “The HAT”, is a performance venue in downtown Sydney.
