BAC Season Subscriptions 101
Before the curtain rises on yet another spectacular season, we’d like to go back to the basics and explain what Broadway Across Canada Season Subscriptions are all about. Whether you’re a current subscriber or you’re considering subscribing in the future, this is for you.
To simplify it, a subscription is a season ticket package. This package consists of tickets for every show in the Broadway Across Canada season. When you subscribe to the season, you subscribe to a day of the week. For each show in the season, you sit in the same seat on the same day of your initial choosing. For example, if you pick Tuesday as your show day and you choose seat 13, row E in the Orchestra , you’ll be at the Tuesday performances of each show and you will always sit in seat 13, row E in the Orchestra.
Should a scheduling conflict arise and you can no longer make that performance, you have the opportunity to exchange tickets for different performance days or even change seat locations if you want to upgrade or sit somewhere else. Otherwise, you are guaranteed the same exact seat location all season long. Once a new season is announced, that same seat is saved for you right up until the renewal deadline.
As a season subscriber, you get priority access to additional tickets. If you want to bring a few friends or family members, you have the opportunity to buy these tickets before the presale and long before tickets even go on sale to the general public.
Benefits aside, a season subscription is a better monetary value than if you purchased individual tickets for each show on your own. On average, subscribers save 31% off day-of-show pricing! If you’re thinking about buying tickets for 3 out of 4 shows, it might be worthwhile to get a subscription.
Oftentimes, we’ll have a season option. A season option is a show that’s coming during the season, but isn’t included in the season subscription package. Subscribers can choose to add the show to their subscription and have early access to tickets before anyone else.
We have a dedicated concierge desk in the lobby of the theatre should you ever have questions about your subscription, the show or if you want to speak to fellow Broadway fanatics. We’d love to meet you and chat all things Broadway!
There are season subscriptions available in Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, and Vancouver. The shows in each subscription will typically be different for each city. As much as we’d love to bring every show to every city, it’s not always possible due to scheduling. Scheduling depends on the theatre’s availability, the show’s availability and BAC’s season schedule. Shows tour in the US as well as Canada, so they often go to Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton in back to back weeks, because it makes sense geographically to travel that way before going back to US cities. It’s for this reason that our Western shows vary from what will come to Ottawa.
Behind the benefits and perks, it’s about the music, the drama, the laughter and lights. It’s everything that makes Broadway an experience like no other. We’re so proud to be a part of it all and can’t wait to share it with you.
Stay tuned for our 2020/2021 Season launch in mid January. We look forward to another year at the theatre.
