50,000 tickets sold for the play “Symphorien”.

The great adventure of the play “Symphorien”, adapted from the hit comedy of the same name that was broadcast on Télé-Métropole in the 1970s, is undeniable.

The troupe learned on the stage at Montreal’s Théâtre Maisonneuve last Saturday that 50,000 tickets had been sold to date. And that’s far from the end as more are added and the tour continues next summer. Dates have already been reserved for 2024.

“Symphorien” rediscovers the characters so loved by Quebecers, created by Marcel Gamache at the time. So Mrs Sylvain is back, running a boarding house. The same goes for Miss L’Espérance, Oscar Bellemarre, Éphrem and of course Symphorien.

Directed by Louis Saia and Pierre Séguin and written by Pierre Huet and Louis Saia, the play “Symphorien” draws on the talent of actors Anne-Marie Binette, François Chénier, Patrice Coquereau, Stéphan Côté, Martin Héroux, Michelle Labonté and Nathalie Mallette.

There will also be extras at the Salle Albert-Rousseau in Quebec City (April 5th and 6th), where the play has already sold out four times, and at the Cabaret du Casino de Montréal (February 22nd and 23rd, 2024).

In the warm season, performances are also planned in Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivières, Victoriaville, Sainte-Thérèse and Saint-Eustache.
