WAYS TO SAVE
Whether you want to see just one show or keep coming back for more, Buddies has affordable ticket options that are right for you. Many shows have Rush Tickets and Pay-What-You-Can ticket options, and you can save even more when you sign up for Buddies Rewards.
Buddies Rewards is a free program that lets you see more at Buddies for less.
With Buddies Rewards, every ticket you buy gets you bigger and bigger discounts, and even free tickets, to shows in our Mainstage Season. There’s no cost to join, no purchase required, and you’ll only get emails from us if you want to.SIGN UP FOR BUDDIES REWARDS
BUY EARLY AND SAVE
For select shows in our Mainstage Season, you can purchase $25 tickets to any performance if you book your tickets early. See show pages for more information.
PAY WHAT YOU CAN
For selected performances, a block of Pay-What-You-Can rush tickets will go on sale at noon for that day’s performance, and you pick the price. If cost is a barrier, this is your chance to get an affordable ticket. If you are able to pay more, this is your chance to increase your support for the work on stage and ensure it stays affordable for those who need it. Pay What You Can tickets are available until 7:00 pm on weekdays and 2:30 pm on Sundays, or until they sell out – whichever comes first.
Rush Tickets are generally only available in-person at our box office, and we recommend getting here early for more popular shows as these tickets can sell fast. However, if getting down here in the middle of the day presents a barrier – accessible transportation, childcare, etc – simply call the box office at 416-975-8555 and we’ll hold up to two Rush Tickets for you that you can purchase when you arrive to see the show.
For information on a specific performance, contact the box office or check the info on the show page.
