The Shell Theatre has a successful season under their belt.
 
In the 2017-18 season the local theatre hosted 28 shows, up two from the previous year. A whopping 7,955 tickets were sold compared to 6,636 in 2016-17, an 8.3 per cent increase.
 
"Fort Saskatchewan came out in droves to see some great culture in our community," said Shell Theatre supervisor Josh Gennings.
 
The most hyped performance, according to Gennings, was the sold-out Barenaked Ladies gig. Other sell-outs included Sharon & Bram (two shows), George Canyon, Menopause the Musical and Colin Mochrie and Deb McGrath.
 
Some of his personal favourites were 54-40 Unplugged and Lion Bear Fox.
 
As for the 2018-19 season, Fort Saskatchewan knows Jann Arden will be returning. Her show on Nov.3 sold out in just six hours.
 
"We want to give Fort Saskatchewan what they want to see. We've got those comment cards, discussions and we've actually created a season around those requests," added Gennings.
 
The venue in the Dow Centennial Centre can hold 538.
 
June 11 is the reveal for the new season. It will feature short sets by Vancouver-based Echo Nebraska and starts at 7:30 p.m.
