by Norm Foster - World Premiere!
The Foster Festival & the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre (PAC) are thrilled to announce the world premiere of a new holiday play by Canada’s most beloved playwright Norm Foster as a part of the PAC’s 19/20 HOT TICKET season. Aunt Agnes for Christmas will play for 15 performances in The Recital Hall from 11 – 22 December 2019.
Part Mary Poppins with a dose of Auntie Mame to spice things up, Aunt Agnes for Christmas is a zany romp through the ups and downs of family life with a heartwarming Christmas message.
It's two days before Christmas in the topsy-turvy Trimble household when George and Sally and their children Melissa and Brian receive an unexpected visit from George's Aunt Agnes - the only problem is, George didn't know he had an Aunt Agnes! As the wise-cracking aunt settles in for the holidays, 14-year old Melissa begins to suspect there's more to Aunt Agnes than meets the eye! You won't want to miss this Norm Foster world premiere comedy with an all-star Niagara cast - it's sure to become a Christmas classic!

I love Christmas and in order to capture the essence of the holidays, I wanted to write it in the months leading up to Christmas. I handed Trish the first draft in October 2018.
We are thrilled to see the incredible success The Foster Festival has had in their first few years and to work with them to build on their offerings for the community. The addition of this new holiday classic-in-the-making to our HOT TICKET program is sure to be a hit.
