Hello Mermaid Fans!
I’ve been doing some number crunching back in the office, and I am pleased to report the following:
On Friday, January 18, 2013, an amazing event took place at Playhouse Square Theatre in Cleveland, Ohio. When the audience was seated for the 12:00pm show of Guess How Much I Love You & I Love My Little Storybook, Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia welcomed their 5 millionth spectator! That show brought our 40-year total to 5,000,298 spectators. When you add in the Treasured Stories by Eric Carle tour which also had shows that day (but started later due to the time zone), we ended that day with 5,000,862 spectators.
As of the end of February, 2013, Mermaid has welcomed 5,039,723 spectators at 11,646 performances, for a lifetime average of 433 spectators per performance.
Have a great week!
