MONTREAL, Sept. 17 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank is delighted to
announce that it is renewing its longstanding and fruitful partnership with
Théâtre du Nouveau Monde (TNM) by becoming the presenter of Forfait 1983.
Originally created four years ago as Forfait 1979, Forfait 1983 is an
innovative subscription package designed specifically for theatregoers born in
or after 1983 (those aged 25 and under). The subscription offers flexible and
affordable prices for young adults wishing to attend plays to be presented
during TMN's 2008-2009 season. The initiative benefits a considerably large
audience, as TNM typically attracts more than 5,000 spectators between the
ages of 18 and 25 annually.
Under its theme, C'est l'fun de pas avoir 26 ans! (It's great to be
under 26!), Laurentian Bank is pleased to be promoting the accessibility of
young people to culture. In addition to allowing them to take advantage of
discounted subscriptions, the Bank is offering all Forfait 1983 holders TNM's
new L'Emporte-pièces annual programme. Laurentian Bank's contribution to
making theatre more available to this age group is yet another reflection of
the organization's commitment to being a responsible corporate citizen.
