What show has sold out the quickest at the Shell Theatre? The answer might surprise you.
It's not Jann Arden, Barenaked Ladies or Randy Bachman. It was Sharon and Bram in the 2017-2018 season.
All of the tickets in the 500+ person venue were gone in three hours.
"That just speaks to the family commitment they bring," said Josh Gennings, supervisor at the Shell Theatre.
Gennings believes strong sales were from the show being announced in June and tickets not going on-sale until January. Qualico Communities sponsored the performance, allowing for lower ticket prices ($2 a piece).
The theatre ended up adding a second show, which also sold out.
Arden's date this upcoming November sold out in six hours. The news of the sell-out comes after the local theatre reported an eight per cent increase in ticket sales over the previous year.
The 2018-2019 season reveal for the Shell Theatre is on Monday night (Jun.11) at 7:30 p.m.
