Ticket Prices

SummerWorks offers Pay-What-You-Decide pricing, with tickets for all paid performances available at $15, $30, or $45. This approach supports our commitment to offer affordable ticket prices. It allows patrons to increase their support for the Festival when possible, while ensuring financial accessibility for those who need it.

All ticket prices are inclusive of HST.

NOTE: A processing fee of $1.50 will be added to every purchased ticket. This small surcharge directly offsets the processing fee charged by our box office software.

Performance Information

The house will open ten (10) minutes prior to the scheduled performance/event start time, with some exceptions. A Patron Services team member will ask you to line up in the lobby prior to entry. Seating is first-come, first-served. You must present your e-ticket on your electronic device or as a printed copy, to be scanned upon entry.

All shows start on time. Latecomers will not be guaranteed entry. Some performances and events may have a late call, at which time a Patron Services team member or a volunteer will bring you into the performance/event space. If you need to leave the space for any reason during the performance/event you may not be guaranteed re-entry. 

Designated Relaxed Performances allow for both latecomers and re-entry. For specific information on Relaxed Performances at SummerWorks, visit our Accessibility Page.
