FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HAMILTON, November 29, 2022 — There’s nothing like stories and songs to get the whole family into
the holiday spirit! Theatre Aquarius is pleased to present A Hamilton Holiday, a celebration of holiday
music and compelling Christmas memories for the whole family!
A Hamilton Holiday is created by Mary Francis Moore & Company, with musical direction by Patrick
Bowman. Big gifts come in small packages, with dramatic and musical performances by a cast of six,
including Amanda De Freitas, Nicole Joy-Fraser, Stephen Ingram, Emily Lukasik, Eliza-Jane Scott and
Adam Stevenson – an all-star lineup of Hamilton-proud actor-musicians with Mirvish, Shaw, Stratford,
and U.S. tour pedigrees.
“When the cast and I talked about the kind of show we wanted to create this year, we knew we wanted
to celebrate this amazing city and the people who call Hamilton home,” explains Mary Francis Moore,
Artistic Director. “Words like joy, courage, compassion, humour, and love have led to the personal stories
and songs that we will be sharing with guests!”
A Hamilton Holiday runs December 9th through 24th on the Theatre Aquarius mainstage. Tickets can be
purchased at https://theatreaquarius.org/a-hamilton-holiday/. Patrons will be transported on a festive musical journey for two hours and 15 minutes, with a brief intermission.
This Theatre Aquarius production is proud to partner with Hamilton Food Share. Patrons are asked to

provide $5 in food to feed the 13,000 local people who visit food banks each month – 5,000 of whom are
