This theater is modern in looks, and what it offers. Movies, great shows, art events and functions. Offering a remarkable mixture of music, theater, art, sculpture, dance, streaming live performances from NY, and Londons WEST END, the Osprey is a great place.

It is great that a town as small as Shelburne has its own theatre. We cannot say the same for Lunenburg, a much bigger town. The seating is very comfortable, the people running it very pleasant and it is located right on the waterfront. I attended a performance of Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado by the Maritime Concert Opera group.... More

You wouldn't expect to find such an active performing arts center in such a little town. Great variety and quality of performances. Friendly small town feel, but big city quality shows.

A superb theater for such a small town. Modern, diverse and showing movies as well as live shows and streaming operas and plays from the West end and Broadway. The theater has an art space, a bar and can be hired out for functions - always something v=diverse and wonderful on offer a must go to.

If your down to the south shore and are looking for a cultural night out, check out the Osprey Arts Centre. They have great entertainment at a very reasonable price. Be sure to check their website where you'll find their schedule and where you can purchase your ticket in advance.

We may be a small town but spew are big on entertainment. This centre has been very active obtaining top rated entertainment. They also promote local talent, both in the music field and in drama! Even the youth are encouraged to explore their artistic pursuits through various programs sponsored by the Osprey! Always a great time when you go to... More
