2023-2024 Grand OnStage: Pay What You Want Program (PWYW)

Continuing our priority to make Grand OnStage performances more accessible to all, we are offering a new Pay What You Want program for select unique performances. Simply reserve your free ticket, attend the show, and consider making a voluntary payment after the performance that reflects your experience.

These professional presentations offer extremely relevant social issues-based work that is reflective of the City of Kingston’s Indigenous reconciliation and sustainability priorities. The Grand OnStage encourages everyone to experience and be inspired by these productions, and we hope by removing this financial barrier they can be enjoyed by all.

The presentations include:

Municipal Fee Assistance Program 

Families who have been approved for the Municipal Fee Assistance Program can purchase reduced-cost tickets to Grand OnStage performances at a cost of $15 each, except for KidStage productions which are $8 per ticket. Some conditions apply. Contact the box office for more information, at 613-530-2050. Learn more here

This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada. If you wish to support the Grand OnStage Municipal Fee Assistance Program Ticket Fund, you can donate online or through Kingston Grand Theatre Box Office. 100% of all donations directly support families to experience the performing arts.
