To ensure the safety and well-being of our public, our clients, and our staff during the developing situation concerning COVID-19, our offices remain closed to the general public during regular hours. Our team remains available and can be easily reached by email or by phone.
In the event of a performance taking place in our theatre, our main doors will only be open to the public starting one hour prior to the event’s start time.
Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario offers a new access ticketing formula “PAY WHAT YOU CAN”
In 2021-2022, Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario will let you decide for yourself how much you want to pay to access its shows and events. Why?
▪ So that a lack of money doesn’t deprive anyone of a rich and rewarding cultural life.
▪ To bring the entire francophone population together in a supportive, welcoming and lively community.
▪ To support the human right of belonging to a culture and the quality of life that the arts provide.
How to determine your price?
We invite you to lower your ticket price if you have difficulty meeting basic needs such as food, health, lodging or transportation.

I can easily meet my basic needs; I can afford public and private transportation. If I own a car or have access to a car, I can afford to pay for gas; I have a job or steady ongoing work; I eat out regularly and can afford tickets to events or activities; I have some savings.
I meet the criteria for a regular ticket; I wish to support the initiative to give back and promote access to art for all.
We’d like to thank Théâtre Cercle Molière in Winnipeg who inspired this new ticketing formula.
Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario is a member of the Coalition for Fair Ticketing, which brings together cultural organizations that wish to reflect on best practices for accessibility in ticketing in order to foster access to art and culture.
