Jim Petrie, Petrie’s Halifax Feast Dinner Theatre

Continuing through March: Art 1274 Hollis, just steps from the train station on Hollis Street, is a friendly little artist-run gallery, highlighting local talents. This month, it spotlights paintings by Heather Crout and Golumba Kim.

Continuing through May 6: Artist H.M. Rosenberg’s work was almost forgotten: the last 150 years have all but erased him from the historical record. Yet he was an artist of rare talent. In Europe he absorbed the influence of Duveneck, Whistler, Sargent, Bocklin, Bastien-Lepage and Gauguin. In 1896, he came to Nova Scotia and produced a broad body of work. Discover him in the Rosenberg exhibition at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia on Hollis Street.

Continuing through June: Director Jim Petrie, the Petrie behind Petrie’s Halifax Feast Dinner Theatre on Salter Street, has written dozens of sidesplitting musical comedies over the years. His latest, Pirates of the Cape Breton, is a swashbuckling good time with an East Coast twist.

March 23: Symphony Nova Scotia The Symphony teams up with the Gypsophilia septet for an evening of “gypsy indie jazz.”

Editor’s Choice: March 28 to 31: The sport’s top competitors meet in the Bluenose Squash Classic. A glass court on stage at the Dalhousie Arts Centre will host the action for a world-class tournament that may be Halifax’s best-kept sports secret.

March 30: Spatz Theatre at Citadel High School on Bell Road hosts Ballet Jörgen’s production of heart-wrenching tragedy Anastasia.
