This month’s Walkabout in my neighborhood found myself and my friends from the Welcome Inn Community Center’s Senior’s Lunch Programme taking in a Saturday afternoon matinee production of MEMORIES. This wonderful production was performed by Hamilton Theatre Inc. who are celebrating 60 years bringinof g the best of Broadway to Hamilton since 1956.

Memories are the timeless treasures of the heart. The Hamilton Theatre Inc. is Hamilton’s oldest musical theatre company presenting the best of Broadway and offering the community an opportunity to get involved in all aspects of theatre. All of their productions and the HTI studio are run by a committed group of volunteers.

At the end of their production of MEMORIES, with audience participation, the closing number “No Business Like Show Business” from Annie Get your Gun had everyone singing. Thanks HTI for a wonderful afternoon spent with my friends.

The dedication and love of musical theatre was evident from the Youth Cast, Adult Cast, Production Team and The Band. We are already planning for their upcoming Spring Show (May 2017), SISTER ACT. This will be our third outing, the first being “HAIR” last year. The history of HTI and the MEMORIES of the past 60 years was a wonderful retrospective.

Unfortunately the roof of this Theatre is in much need of repairs and I encourage everyone, as I have, to donate toward the repairs. I am a supporter of Community and Community Event’s that I hold dear of my heart. HAMILTON THEATRE INC can be reached at or you can reach them at their box office at 905-522-3032.

It was memory flashback for myself and my first high school production of “Once Upon A Mattress” thanks HTI for the MEMORIES.

Till next month’s Walkabout “Take Care of You & Those Around You”
