Anne Frank play receipt totals highest in Aquarius history

News Oct 30, 2009 Ancaster News

Theatre Aquarius would like to issue a sincere thank you to their patrons in Hamilton and surrounding communities for helping to make The Diary of Anne Frank a stunning success.

Gross box receipts totals for the four-week run of the production were the highest of any Mainstage Series play ever mounted on the Aquarius stage at the Dofasco Centre for the Arts since the building opened 18 years ago in September 1991.

Theatre Aquarius paired the powerful production (directed by Marcia Kash and adapted by Wendy Kesselmans from the 1955 Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett) with the exhibit Anne Frank: A History for Today direct from the Anne Frank Center in New York and a guest lecture series featuring Frank Junger, a Holocaust survivor, and Dr. Pamela Swett from McMaster University. This winning combination of entertainment and education was well received and appreciated by the community.

Theatre Aquarius is in its 37th season as South Western Ontario’s professional regional theatre with 8,000 annual subscribers and over 100,000 patrons for its 200 performances, drawing audiences from London, Mississauga, Guelph and Niagara.

Theatre Aquarius is one of only 12 A category professional producing not-for-profit regional theatres in Canada, and 3rd largest in Ontario.
