Shaw Festival Launches Niagara Neighbours Spring Celebration

Media Bulletin #4

Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, March 4, 2009 . . . The Shaw Festival today announced the Niagara Neighbours Spring Celebration, an invitation for Niagara residents to join The Shaw in celebrating the launch of the 2009 season.

The Spring Celebration includes $35 tickets, a savings of up to $24 per ticket, to select performances of the award-winning Sondheim musical Sunday in the Park with George, Noël Coward’s delightful drama Brief Encounters, Eugene O’Neill’s bitter-sweet love story A Moon for the Misbegotten, and the roaring comedy of Shaw’s In Good King Charles’s Golden Days between April 1 and May 20. Student tickets are $20.

In announcing the Niagara Neighbours programme, The Shaw’s Executive Director Colleen Blake said: “We’re so pleased to offer Niagara residents – our neighbours – an opportunity to experience the first Shaw Festival productions of the 2009 Season. We offer this special incentive as a thankyou to our neighbours, in acknowledgement of their ongoing support for The Shaw.”

Early booking is advised – the first phase of Niagara Neighbours Spring Celebration is available only until March 15. A second block of tickets may also become available after March 23. Book online and save on the handling fee.
