Live Bait Theatre is a professional theatre company based in Sackville, New Brunswick, in Canada. Established in 1988, it continues to have a vested interest in supporting and encouraging both up-and-coming and well-known Maritime actors and playwrights. The writer Arthur Motyer was the founding chair.
Notable performers at Live Bait have included Rita MacNeil, Blakie and the Rodeo Kings, This Hour Has 22 Minutes' Cathy Jones, Lorne Elliot, and the Barra-MacNeils, among others.
In more than twenty years, the company has also produced over forty-five mainstage shows, along with a score of Atlantic-themed dinner theatres, musical revues, and other performance events and playwriting/reading workshops.
