Water­mark ex­tends sea­son

It has seen an in­crease in sea­son ticket passes

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Water­mark Theatre’s 2017 10th an­niver­sary sum­mer sea­son will be ex­tended by one week to Sept. 2.

The theatre has seen an in­crease in sea­son ticket passes by 28 per cent so far this sum­mer, and in­di­vid­ual tick­ets are al­ready out­pac­ing last sum­mer’s show­ing.

This sum­mer’s pro­duc­tions of “Bare­foot in the Park” by Neil Si­mon and “Mrs. War­ren’s Pro­fes­sion” by Ge­orge Bernard Shaw have both re­ceived out­stand­ing crit­i­cal and au­di­ence re­sponse. The Guardian called “Mrs. War­ren’s Pro­fes­sion” “... the most sat­is­fy­ing piece of theatre I’ve seen on Prince Ed­ward Is­land...Highly rec­om­mended”. The Buzz said about the show, “...de­liv­ered with in­tel­li­gence and sen­si­tiv­ity...I am so whole­heart­edly grate­ful for the Water­mark Theatre”. “Bare­foot in the Park” was equally well re­garded, with The Guardian say­ing, “...hard work, tal­ent, charm and hon­esty can help carry the day...played with gen­uine com­mit­ment”. The Buzz added, “...a com­edy about re­la­tion­ships, full of zingy di­a­logue and zany an­tics...a great sum­mer evening”.

“We are, of course, thrilled that we’re able to add ex­tra per­for­mances and play right into Labour Day week­end”, says artis­tic direc­tor Robert Tsonos.

“We’ve had such a won­der­ful re­sponse from au­di­ences so far this sea­son and we’re ex­pect­ing crowds to in­crease even more over the rest of the sum­mer.”
