Mr. Ron's Matinee

A Special Event in Honour of "Mr. Ron" Patterson Donate Today

Help us welcome hundreds of children to a free matinee of Beauty and the Beast
in memory of “Mr. Ron” Patterson

Patterson_TheatreTheatre Aquarius lost a great friend and one of our most stalwart champions this year with the passing of “Mr. Ron” Patterson. Mr. Ron’s generosity and his passion for the theatre were without equal.

Mr. Ron enjoyed nothing better than to see new people visit the theatre for the first time, and that was especially true of young people. Seeing busloads of youth attending matinee performances was special to him, as he knew this represented the future of the theatre. This season we have a wonderful opportunity to make this connection a lasting one for hundreds of young people in our community.

In memory and honor of Mr. Ron, Theatre Aquarius is offering one of our Student Matinee performances of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast as a special, free matinee for select elementary schools in the downtown which have been identified by the Board of Education as “high needs”. For many of these children, this will be their first opportunity to experience professional theatre, and an experience that they will never forget!

Please join us in making this vision a reality. Join us in honoring Mr. Ron Patterson by making a donation in support of Mr. Ron’s Matinee, and help to give the gift of theatre to children in our community. Contributions may be made through the Box Office at 905.522.7529 | 1.800.465.7529 or online
