The National Arts Centre wants to ensure that as many students as possible are exposed to and seduced by - the incomparable thrill of a live music, theatre, or dance performance. It’s more romantic than speed-dating, more fun than the movies - and it won’t reduce brain-wave activity like watching TV. Forget about “reality programming” we guarantee that live onstage reality is six hundred billion times better!
The NAC makes it affordable, even on a student budget.
50% off the regular price!
If you are a full-time student at a primary, secondary, or post-secondary school, bring your valid student ID card to the NAC Box Office and save big bucks on a season subscription to the NAC Orchestra, English Theatre, French Theatre, or Dance. Each artistic discipline offers several subscription series to choose from and you can even create your own ‘Designer’ subscription in Music, Theatre and Dance.
The small print: only one subscription may be purchased per student ID card and the 50% student discount is calculated before the NAC Facility Fee (approximately $2 per ticket) is applied.
Only at the NAC Box Office
A seat at 50% off the regular ticket price!
Why wait until the Live Rush last minute and risk missing a sold-out show? A limited number of half-price student tickets is available for every performance this guarantees you a seat, and you can buy your tickets anytime after Labour Day for any show in the regular season.
The small print: student tickets (one per student) must be purchased in person at the NAC Box Office. You’ll need a valid student ID card, and, of course, purchase is subject to ticket availability. Student tickets are available for NAC performances* only, but not to “rentals”, such as some touring concerts or shows.
Only at the NAC Box Office
* Excluding Young People’s Concerts, Family Theatre Series, Série Jeunesse and galas.
