Tickets and Passes
Your $12 ticket is broken out in this way: $10 ticket price and $2 service charge. We return 100% of the ticket price to artists, because we believe in supporting the next generation of theatre-makers. The $2 service charge helps keep our organization running and the lights on. We are a charitable organization, and this is an important piece of our operational budget.
The $2 per order fee on phone and online sales goes towards the technical infrastructure necessary to run our advance box office programs and compensate box office staff.
We have moved the festival to a more green, paperless system. If you have booked in advance, your email confirmation acts as your e-ticket that will be scanned at the door of the venue. If you would prefer to print out the e-ticket, we will scan the printout. If you cannot find your e-ticket in your inbox, please check your spam folder and then call the box office at 416-966-1062. If you prefer hardcopy tickets, we have a ticket printing kiosk at the main Fringe Box Office at Scadding Court (707 Dundas West).
We have a rush tickets system for volunteers and our emerging artist program.
As per the Ontario Consumers Protection Act, we are not permitted to re-sell goods (i.e. tickets) that have been sold to a consumer.

The latecomer policy came into effect at the request of our patrons. Not only does it create a more enjoyable experience for our audience but it is also there to protect the health and safety of everyone.
At Scadding Court Community Centre, 707 Dundas Street West. Please read more about our new home.
Honest Ed's is currently being developed into a new condo and retail hub. We will always look back fondly on our Honest Ed's years, but are excited that Scadding Court offers increased accessibility and visibility for the festival.
This year we decided to focus our energy on launching a new website that is fully mobile-ready, as well as designing a new program book in full colour.
The Fringe Lottery
Yes it really is a lottery. We receive over 700 applications, which are then divided into various categories, including National, International, General and KidsFest. Each applicant receives a lottery number. At the lottery party, we have small pieces of cardboard with the lottery numbers on them and these are verified by various people at the event. All applicants are welcome to verify that their number is present. Once they have been verified, numbers are dropped into a bin in front of the audience, and the winning numbers are drawn.
Then we wouldn’t be a Fringe, as per our CAFF (Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals) mandate. We invite you to our The Next Stage Theatre Festival for a juried experience!
If you have additional questions or suggestions, we always love hearing from our community of artists, patrons, supporters and volunteers. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 416-966-1062.
