BURLINGTON, ON – The Burlington Performing Arts Centre is pleased to announce its 2014 Hall of Fame Inductee: Rainer Noack – Founder and Program Director of Burlington Student Theatre. Through Student Theatre, Mr. Noack has been providing training, camps, and arts opportunities for children and youth in the Burlington area since 1978. Having also taught for the Halton District Catholic School Board, it is clear that educating is close at heart for Noack. With his love of the arts and his incredible commitment and contribution to the city of Burlington, Rainer Noack was named Burlington’s Arts Person of the Year in both 1995 and 2009. The Hall of Fame award will be presented to Rainer Noack at the 2014 Cabaret: Escape to The Mediterranean at The Burlington Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, November 8. This year’s special guest performer is PAVLO. Proceeds from this fundraising event support the education programs at The Centre.

Established in 2013, The Burlington Performing Arts Centre’s Hall of Fame recognizes people who have made significant contributions to the performing arts in Burlington. Recipients of this award demonstrate the diversity of artistic accomplishment that comprises the rich cultural tapestry of the City of Burlington. The Burlington Performing Arts Centre recognizes that the individual and group artists are paramount and fundamental to cultural development. These individuals and groups contribute to Burlington’s reputation as a city with a strong and sustained commitment toward the development of cultural excellence. At the 2013 Mayor’s Cabaret, the Hall of Fame’s first inductee, Gordie Tapp, was recognized for his years of service as performer and storyteller on radio, TV and on stage, and for his years of charity work.
