Share the Magic of Live Performance!

In-person performance experiences are back, and we are opening our doors and safely welcoming our community in to the Fredericton Playhouse.

We believe in inclusion, and that’s why our Friends of the Playhouse 2021 campaign is all about putting Bums in Seats – bringing high-quality live performance to more people in our community than ever before.

Ticket sales cover only a portion of the funding required to present programs at the Playhouse. We rely on our Friends to provide the additional support needed to make these special programs available to school children, local artists, and other deserving members of our community.



Your donation allows us to provide:

  • Special school matinée performances for local students, many of whom have never been to the theatre before
  • Paid-for tickets, through our Arts are for Everyone program, to people in our community who face barriers to attending live performing arts
  • Dance, music, acting, and other workshops to children and youth through our Experience More! program
  • Creative residencies for local artists to develop their talents in the Playhouse through our InterMISSION program
  • Pay What You Will pricing on tickets to our Kidstage Series of shows for young audiences and families
  • Design and deliver programs and services that make important connections between artists, audiences, and the community
