All theatre majors are entitled to one complimentary ticket to any preview performance. Preview performances are Tuesday and Wednesday before opening night for mainstage productions. All tickets for Previews are only available on the same day as the performance. Theatre majors can:

  • Claim their free ticket in person from 12:00 to 5:00pm on the day of the preview for advanced preview sales (before public sales). N.B. - Theatre majors can purchase up to 4 additional tickets for friends and family at this advance box office time at the regular preview price of $8.
  • In person anytime during public sales on the same day.
  • Public Box Office sales begin at 5:00pm on the day of the preview. $8 preview tickets can be purchased over the phone or in person during these times

Please note: Latecomers will NOT be seated at Previews.

Cast and crew advance sales

Advanced ticket sales are made available to cast and crew on a production one day prior to the Box Office opening to public sales (usually the Monday of the week before the show opens).

  • Ticket sales are in person only
  • Reservations must be paid for at the time of booking with cash, debit, cheques, mastercard or visa.
  • Please note that performances have been pre-sold to subscribers and some nights have limited availability.
  • The Box Office will assist cast or crew members in accommodating their needs on sold out evenings, if this request is given at this advance box office. Their request will be given top priority on waiting lists.

Five-minute comps

Any theatre major is entitled to see any department performance for free providing there are remaining available tickets that cannot be sold 5 minutes before the performance is scheduled to begin. Reservations cannot be made for this privilege. Interested students should arrive in person at the Box Office to put their name on a first-come, first-served list, which opens one hour before the performance time.
