OFFER WHAT YOU WILL
Theatre is an exchange. A living, breathing story shared among people. At Fringe Theatre, we believe in the power of story. We believe everyone has something to contribute. And, we believe in making theatre accessible to everyone. 25% of all our regular season performances are Offer What you Will. You may offer any dollar amount you’re able to contribute, or you can offer other non-monetary ways of showing respect and mutual investment, such as tobacco, your own art, or a donation you feel the artist(s) will benefit from. No one will be turned away. Learn more.

EXCHANGES & REFUNDS?
Exchanges on tickets up to 48 hours prior to season performances. No refunds except in exceptional cases.

LATECOMERS? RE-ENTRY?
Late-comers are permitted for certain season performances only. Re-entry is unfortunately not allowed under our COVID-19 mitigation procedures at this time. Please contact our Box Office for details at boxoffice@fringetheatre.ca.

HEARING ASSIST
Our main box office and all theatre venues are equipped in the ATB Financial Arts Barns are equipped with hearing assistance. Learn more here.

How to use the system:

  1. Check with your hearing aid provider to see if your hearing aids are t-coil equipped. If so, ask to have it activated.
  2. When you get to the theatre, switch on your t-coil. Adjust your hearing aid volume as needed.

The signal going to your ear will be modified by your own personal hearing aid settings.

Those without hearing aids or a t-coil can still benefit by using a portable receiver with a headset. Portable receivers with headsets are available on a first come, first serve basis, and can be reserved for a performance. For more information, or to reserve a device, please contact us at boxoffice@fringetheatre.ca or visit our box office upon arrival.
