At TPM we strongly believe that making theatre accessible makes it better and leads to more exciting experiences for everyone.
Notice of Temporary Service Disruption: The Theatre and in-person Box Office are closed due to COVID-19. While the theatre is closed our Box Office phone messages will be checked throughout the week and a staff member will return your call as soon as possible. The best way to reach us is via email.
The Backspace Theatre is under renovation, there are no performances scheduled and no access to the space until Spring 2022.
ACCESSIBILITY FEATURES & DEVICES
This season we will not be offering subscriptions. Instead, Theatre Passe Muraille will be embracing the Pay-What-You-Can-Afford model, and offering single tickets only. The ticket prices this season are: $5, $25, and $50 for our Season Productions and $5, $10, and $20 for our BUZZ Development Series. In order to remove barriers in our pricing, we are offering three price points so that a wide range of audiences are able to attend. We encourage audiences to make their own choices about what they can afford in order to experience theatre. Those purchasing at the $50 price point will do so with the understanding that their ticket price is helping to subsidize the $5 ticket price, and in doing so, making theatre more accessible for others.
