I was unable to get tickets for the live performances on the Concert Stage – what are my options?
In order to comply with social distancing regulations and in accordance with Ontario Public Health, we had an extremely limited number of seats available for these performances. We anticipated a high level of interest in this free event and due to overwhelming demand, these performances booked extremely quickly. Please do not travel to the Harbourfront Centre with lawn chairs or your own seating as this will not be permitted.
We share in everyone’s excitement about these special performances and we cannot wait to return to the theatre in November. Sharing the Stage continues until August 29, with free classes, conversations and open rehearsals . Full details available here.
Is there a cost to attend?
The performances are free of charge but registration is required.

What is the duration of the performance?
The run time for both programmes is approximately 1 hour 20 minutes.

What safety measures will be in place?
We are working closely with Harbourfront Centre staff to ensure the safety of all patrons, artists and staff. As this event is outdoor and seating is patio-style, we are following all Ontario Public Health guidelines in accordance with patio events. With that in mind, we have the following procedures in place:
What access will there be to washrooms?
Access to the washrooms will be at the rear of the Concert Stage and will have a dedicated entrance and exit. Washrooms will be accessible throughout the show and Harbourfront ambassadors will be available to direct you and manage social distancing.
How do I order food and beverages?
Food and beverages will be available to order directly from Boxcar Social on the evening. Please note that food will not be served during the performance. If you are dining with us, please arrive by 7:00 pm to ensure you will be served before the performance begins.

Your seats will only be held until 7:30 pm. If you do not arrive by that time, they will be released to the rush line. The performances will begin promptly at 8:00 pm.

Doors open at 6:00 pm. There will be no seating after 7:30 pm. The performance will begin promptly at 8:00 pm and there will be no late seating.
Please note that food will not be served during the performance. If you are dining with us, please arrive by 7:00 pm to ensure you will be served before the performance begins.
Is it required that I order food or drinks?
No, you are welcome to attend and enjoy the performance without ordering any food or beverages.
What if some of my guests are not able to attend at the last minute?
Please call or email us if the number of guests seated at your table changes. If possible, we will move your group to a smaller table.
What will happen if the weather is poor?
Most of the tables are covered by a large permanent canopy so if it rains lightly, the performance will proceed and patrons are encouraged to dress appropriately. In the event of severe weather, the performance will be cancelled and patrons notified as quickly as possible.
