SFT MEMBERS
What hasn’t changed during these trying times…. is our commitment to our strong force of SFT MEMBERS and their commitment to us.

Do you know that by becoming an SFT MEMBER for $35 annually, you will save $4 per ticket on most shows and $5 on Dinner Theatre tickets?

SFT MEMBERS may exchange tickets free of charge ($8 per order exchange fee for non-Members) and you will always receive advance ticket booking privileges when our new season goes on sale. CLICK HERE to see other SFT Member Benefits.

 

SFT BOX OFFICE
We are not open to walk-ins by the public. Box Office and other staff are working remotely from their homes. Telephone and email inquiries only please. 613-395-2100 / 1-877-312-1162 or boxoffice@stirlingfestivaltheatre.com. You may also contact us by Facebook messenger, but it will undoubtedly be faster by phone message or email.

For those of you who have purchased tickets to the shows that are deferred, we will endeavour to assign you the same seats.

For the cancelled performances, we will either:

  1. Refund your ticket purchase;
  2. Refund your ticket purchase onto your SFT account or a gift certificate (no expiry date) to use for future shows;
  3. Convert your ticket purchase into a donation to the SFT and you will be issued a charitable income tax receipt.

** In that we are experiencing a high volume of calls and emails, please be patient with our hard-working Box Office front-liners!

 

TICKET FEES & ONLINE ORDER FEES
Ticket fees are included for all in person and telephone orders. There is a $5 service charge per order for on-line sales. No $5 fee if you are only making an online donation. HST is applicable on all ticket orders.
