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!
