KINGSTON, ON – Are you under 30 years old? Do you want half priced tickets to select shows? The Grand Theatre is proud to launch “IMPACT” in partnership with The Great Waterway - a new discount program for youth pricing.
“Students and recent graduates tend to assume they can’t afford performing arts,” says Brian McCurdy, City of Kingston Cultural Director. “Through the IMPACT program, we have enabled youth to see live performances for as little as $11.50. We know they will be impressed with the amount of shows available to them for under $25.”
Here's how it works:
IMPACT encourages accessibility and interaction with performing arts at the Grand Theatre for youth who are not a high school student and between 13 and 29 years old. Are you a high school student? Check out your discount program “eyeGo to the Arts”. If you're 12 or under, ask about youth pricing.
The Grand Theatre Foundation would like to acknowledge its 12-13 Season Underwriters: Homestead Land Holdings and Four Points by Sheraton. The Education Underwriters are CIBC Children’s Foundation and CIBC Woody Gundy. The Ticket Sponsor is Rogers Wireless and the official Restaurant Sponsor is Aqua Terra Restaubistro. Additional sponsors are Empire Life, Sun Life Financial, Cunningham Swan, Walter Fenlon and Linda Ann Daly, Caldwell Wealth and Estate Advisory Ltd., Canadian Tire Kingston Stores, Chez Piggy, The Davies Foundation, Stan & Marie-Rose Gibson, Dianne Lackonick of Assante Wealth Management, Mackillop Law, Shoalts and Zaback Arhitects Ltd.
