Theatre for Everyone

We believe in making theatre affordable for all and have several programs that will let you see Theatre Calgary shows at a reduced cost.


We offer a limited number of pay-what-you-can tickets for each production’s first Saturday matinee (2:00 p.m.)

Starting one (1) hour before the performance begins (1:00 p.m.), a limited number of seats will be available at the Max Bell Theatre Box Office. These cash-only tickets are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to availability. These tickets tend to sell out quickly, and seating is typically located on the Second Balcony level.

Sun Life Financial Arts & Culture Passes 

The Sun Life Financial Arts + Culture Pass is open to individuals and families who have a City of Calgary Recreation Fee Assistance card. Visit the Calgary Public Library for more information on discounts for Theatre Calgary.
