Watermark extends season
It has seen an increase in season ticket passes
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.”
