Thank You

We have brought the curtain down on our 2016 season.

I have had the pleasure of receiving hundreds of comments from people in the lobby and on the street telling me how much they enjoyed the season as a whole and specific shows in particular. It is heartening to hear these remarks because it tells me that our goals for excellence and producing an entertaining season are being achieved.

On behalf of everyone involved with the Highlands Summer Festival, thank you for your loyalty this year and in past seasons. Thank you for endorsing our efforts by buying tickets. Thank you for your donations and support for our fund-raising projects. And thank you to our business supporters who see the Highlands Summer Festival as an important part of summer in the Highlands.

Planning is already underway for 2017. We should have details on the season on this website in early November. In the meantime, I encourage you to revisit the season just past, by viewing the TD Waterhouse Curtain Talks videos offered below.

See you at the theatre,

Jack Brezina
