A Cambridge family is throwing its support behind the new Drayton theatre in Cambridge in a big way.   

John and Terry Hamilton are donating $500,000 to the organization.

Drayton Entertainment says the family will be honoured by having the auditorium at the new Dunfield Theatre Cambridge.

The Hamiltons have been longtime supporters of Drayton and John Hamilton says
“We believe such innovation should be celebrated, which is why we made the decision to support Drayton Entertainment’s fundraising effort with a substantial
contribution to the cause.”

The theatre is set to open next month, with the first production being “Mary Poppins.”
