Support Calgary’s Theatre Companies By Donating Your Cancelled Show Ticket

Consider forgoing a refund and using the money to help local theatre companies survive during the closure.

The local arts often bring comfort and an escape in times of need and distress, which is why we want Calgary’s vibrant arts organizations to still be around when the time comes for us all to emerge from our homes. All upcoming Calgary theatre performances and programming have been cancelled or postponed due to COVID-19. Instead of asking for a refund if you already purchased a ticket, many theatre companies are asking Calgarians to instead use that money  to help support their organization during the shut-down.

Here’s a list of where and how you can help support local performing arts.
