I loved getting to see a performance that normally I wouldn’t consider seeing, it helped broaden my perspective and appreciation for the arts!

WHAT IS DOWNSTAGE'S PAY IT FORWARD PROGRAM?

Thanks to the support of our donors, this program makes tickets available at no cost on a first-come, first-served basis to any Calgarian. 

WHO IS IT FOR? 

Whether you're on a low or fixed income, want to "try out" the experience of going to theatre before committing to a price, or have another reason, everyone is welcome to use the program. 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • One month before any of our shows, no-cost tickets will be available to be reserved using the form below or by calling 403-294-7459.
  • Show up at the theatre no later than 30 minutes before the show to claim your reserved tickets.
  • Any unclaimed tickets will be offered at the door on a first-come, first-served basis.  
I appreciate that I do not have to give my reason for barriers to access the show. This makes me feel better about seeking an affordable ticket.

You can help share this opportunity by:

  • Telling others in person or on social media using our handle @DownstageYYC and the #PayItForwardProgram. One of the most impactful things you can do is to make a personal invitation to someone else who you think would enjoy Downstage's work! AND/OR
  • Making a donation of any size toward the program to help pay for someone else's ticket. 

pay it forward tickets for the 2018-19 season can be reserved one month before each run.
