Ticket Discounts

Ticket Discounts

Some shows offer discounted ticket prices for children, students and seniors. Pricing is decided by the presenter. Refer to each show description for discounts – they will be listed in the ticket prices for that event.

Shows presented by Shenkman Arts Centre Presents and MIFO regularly include student discounts.
  • uGO and MIFO “Students” – $20 ticket for any full time post-secondary student (with student ID)*
  • eyeGO – $5 any full time high school student (with student ID)*
  • Older Adult: Age and discount is determined by the presenter. Check individual event listings for details.
  • Child – age varies. Check individual shows for availability.
*uGO, MIFO “Students” and eyeGO: Students may purchase seats at any time, but don’t delay because seats are limited to 5% of the capacity of Harold Shenkman Hall (25 seats per show). See the eyeGO FAQs below for more information.

Additional discounts are available to members of either the Front + Centre or MIFO’s Carte Privilège programs. See the Membership section of the website for more details.

FAQs for Students and Parents

How can I find out about show listings and times?

The easiest way is to go to the eyeGO web site at www.eyego.org, or if you have heard about a show that you would like to see phone the box office to find out if it is an eyeGO show. You can also look at the pricing on the description of the event you are interested in on the Events pages.

If I buy an eyeGO ticket will I have bad seats?

eyeGO tickets are sold on a best available basis. If you buy your tickets early enough you could have the best seats in the house!

How can I buy tickets?

Visit the box office in person to buy an eyeGO ticket. Be sure to bring your student card with you. If you pre-register, you may purchase your ticket online or on the phone.

Can I buy tickets for friends?

You can, but the tickets will not be released until they arrive and show the box office their high school student cards.

What if I don’t have a student card?

No problem! Just ask a teacher at your school to send eyeGO to the Arts a letter on school letterhead stating that you are enrolled for the current school year. eyeGO to the Arts will send you a card you can show in place of a student card. You must also have a secondary form of ID.

Do I have to get dressed up to go to an eyeGO to the Arts performance?

Clothes that are appropriate at school are also fine for a performance.

Will I be guaranteed an eyeGO ticket if I ask for one?

No. There are only a certain number of seats made available for eyeGO tickets for each show. However, the box office is not obligated to hold those tickets for eyeGO students, so if the show is selling well with adult audiences then those seats may be sold. Bottom line – if you want an eyeGO ticket you have to get it before the show sells out.

Is there a limit to how many tickets I can buy?

You are permitted to buy one ticket for yourself, for as many performances as you want. You may also purchase additional tickets at the regular price for others.

As a parent, if I have a child who is not yet in high school, can I purchase an eyeGO ticket for them?

This program is designed to encourage secondary school students to choose to see performances as a form of recreation. It is based on the student making an independent decision to see performances and therefore is not appropriate for younger children. In addition, the student must present ID to purchase the ticket. The parent cannot do this on their behalf.
