Passport to the Arts returns, offering a world of experiences in our own backyard
For the third year in a row, nine professional arts organizations in Fredericton have joined together to create the Passport to the Arts, allowing passport holders to enjoy more than $350 worth of performances, galleries, festivals and classes for only $100 (plus HST).
“Passport to the Arts is an affordable way to test drive a variety of artistic experiences offered right here in Fredericton,” says Tim Yerxa, Executive Director of the Fredericton Playhouse. “We’re thrilled that all of the previous participants are once again involved, and this year we’ve added a couple of new benefits to give the Passport an even higher value.”
Passport to the Arts benefits include:
Fredericton Playhouse: Two tickets to a Kidstage performance and one ticket to a contemporary dance performance;
Theatre New Brunswick: One ticket to Marion Bridge;
Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada: One ticket to Bach, a Choir and Cocktails;
Symphony New Brunswick: One ticket to a Bravo performance at the Playhouse;
Beaverbrook Art Gallery: Four adult admissions and two program sessions;
NB Film Co-Op: One pass to the Silver Wave Film Festival and one ticket to a Monday Night Film Series screening;
Harvest Jazz & Blues festival: One ticket to Waylon Thibodeaux;
Connexion ARC: One-year Associate Membership;
Charlotte Street Arts Centre: A guided tour of the Charlotte Street Arts Centre and one pass to New Brunswick Musicians Emerge Festival.
In total, Passport to the Arts includes a dozen different arts events and activities, beginning this September.
“The Passport highlights just a few of the exciting arts experiences happening in Fredericton,” Yerxa says. “We see this as a fantastic opportunity for newcomers to the region, young professionals, empty-nesters, seniors, or anyone who’s curious about cultural activities in the Capital City to participate more actively in our local arts scene.”
The Passport to the Arts program has been made possible through the generous support of the City of Fredericton. Passport benefits are non-transferrable, and are valid from September 1, 2015 until August 31, 2016.
Passports are on sale now, in person at the Fredericton Playhouse box office. Only 100 Passports will be available.
