On Saturday, June 22nd, the Merrimack Repertory Theater celebrated the culmination of their 40th season of theater with their annual gala at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium.
Mayor William Samaras was in attendance and presented longtime MRT supporter, Nancy Donahue with a key to the city in recognition of the theater’s success.
The city had earlier feted MRT prior to the City Council meeting of October 23rd, 2018–40 years to the date of MRT’s debut performance of the “Passion of Dracula”
“As the dedication of the performers, the staff, volunteers, donors, and audiences over the next 40 years and 200+ plays have shown, Passion truly is an appropriate word for MRT. It takes passion to produce an organization like this,” the Mayor remarked.
