Spotlight Series 22-23 starts off with Pay What You Will shows

The 2022-23 Spotlight Series kicks off in October with THREE shows that month offering Pay What You Will ticket pricing!  

What is Pay What You Will?

At the Fredericton Playhouse, we’re always looking for new ways to make the performing arts more accessible and to encourage our community to take a chance on new and exciting work. This season, we have SIX shows offering Pay What You Will tickets, in addition to our three Kidstage performances. There’s something new for everyone to discover. Read on for more information!

The shows

Maureen Batt & Greg Harrison, Lighthouse: Saturday, Oct. 1

Winner of ECMA2022 Classical Recording of the Year. Lighthouse is a visually and sonically rich immersive experience that touches on themes of loss, love, and hope. It’s a journey that explores the tides of grief seamlessly weaving classical, electronic, and pop genres. Gregory Harrison (Grej) “percussion & electronics wizard” (NPR Music) and Maureen Batt “captivating soprano” (Opera Canada) team up for an exclusive one-time homecoming performance.

Silver Wolf Band: Thursday, Oct. 13 

Silver Wolf Band is a four-piece Indigenous folk-rock band from Labrador. Lively, engaging, and self-assured performances of honest and sincere lyrical music is what makes Silver Wolf Band one of the most in-demand music groups from Labrador. Their music is piano driven and rich in harmony. Lyrically, their songs are shaped and informed by family, community, love, and their homeland itself.

How it works

Step 1: Reserve your ticket

Just like attending any other show at the Fredericton Playhouse, you need to reserve a ticket. You can reserve them online HERE, in person or over the phone. If you’re unable to attend the show (life happens!), please let our Box Office know as soon as possible so that we can provide this opportunity to other members of the community.

Step 2: Sit back and enjoy

When you get to the theatre on show day (don’t forget your tickets!), our ushers will provide you with an empty envelope. Sit back and enjoy the performance.

Step 3: Pay What You Will

Once the show is over, you decide your price of admission based on your experience. You can pay using your envelope with cash, credit card or by cheque.
