Festival Players of Prince Edward County has just made some exciting announcements – starting in 2018, the company will be led by Incoming Artistic Director Graham Abbey, and in this transitional year, veteran director John Wood will be at the helm of our 2017 season.
Before our 2017 season is announced in May, Festival Players is offering our patrons the opportunity to pre-purchase tickets at a fantastic price of just $25 + tax.
How Does it Work?
- Pre-purchase a $25.00 ticket today.
- Your pre-purchased ticket will be registered in our ticketing system until you are ready to select your performance.
- Select your performance date any time after the season is announced in May.
- We will offer you a 48-hour advance booking window starting on May 7th to select your preferred performance date before single tickets go on sale to the general public.
- When you select your preferred performance, tickets for that event will be emailed to you.
What Do You Need to Know?
- This will be the best ticket price available for our 2017 season (with the exception of select pay-what-you-can shows, student/youth pricing or group discounts).
- There will be three shows in the 2017 season, with performances taking place roughly between July 24th and August 27th. Most of the performances will be outdoors.
- Festival Players reserves the right to limit the use of Pre-Purchased Tickets if we offer premium-priced events (i.e. fund raisers, one-night-only events)
