“We promised that, whether it was comedy or dance, rock or jazz, we would have shows that appealed to a variety of theatre-goers,” says Bernice Morrison, Manager of Arts and Culture, City of Brampton. That variety includes the headliners noted above as well as the reintroduction of the popular Studio Two series featuring music, theatre, comedy and family performances in the venue’s intimate, 100-seat secondary hall.

Subscribers receive a number of special benefits including savings up to 25% off regular ticket prices, first access to purchase tickets, first notice of new shows added throughout the season, free exchanges and an invitation to attend the annual Subscriber Appreciation Night at the launch of the new season.

New this year, season Subscribers will have the opportunity to combine Summer and Fall/Winter subscriptions, for nearly a full year of great entertainment. Also, in celebration of the tenth season, for every nine shows purchased at a Pick 5 subscription level, subscribers will receive an additional two tickets to a tenth show of their choosing.
