Friends of the Fredericton Playhouse

Do you love that magical feeling of enjoying a show at the Playhouse? If you do, become a Friend of the Playhouse and SHARE THE MAGIC!

We believe everyone deserves to experience the joy and inspiration of live performance. That’s why Friends is all about making theatre experiences more accessible. Let’s bring enriching performances to more people in our community than ever before! 

Ticket sales cover only a portion of the funding required to present programs at the Playhouse. We rely on our Friends to provide the additional support needed to make these special programs available to school children, local artists, and other deserving members of our community.

Your donation allows us to provide:

  • Special school matinée performances for local students, many of whom have never been to the theatre before
  • Paid-for tickets, through our Arts are for Everyone program, to people in our community who face barriers to attending live performing arts 
  • Dance, music, acting, and other workshops to children and youth through our Experience More! activities
  • Creative residencies for local artists to develop their talents in the Playhouse through our InterMISSION program
  • Paid-for tickets to our Kidstage Series of shows for young audiences and families 
  • Design and deliver programs and services that make important connections between artists, audiences, and the community
