The Stay At Home Show
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says it daily. Premier Doug Ford can’t go an hour without saying it. Mayor John Tory may say it even more often: “Stay Home!”
In case you still haven’t gotten the message, Mirvish Productions is launching a brand-new theatre show, the first of its kind to open in Toronto. The Stay At Home Show is an immersive new theatrical experience where the spectator is the star and where the goal is a healthier world for all.
Seeking great entertainment custom-made just for you and those in your household to enjoy at home, especially now that the stay-at-home order will be extended?
The Stay At Home Show is the perfect show for you!
You can do it all without leaving the comfort of your home.
Best of all, one ticket price allows you multiple viewings. It’s the show that keeps on giving and giving and giving
Okay, let’s be upfront about this: The Stay At Home Show is not really a show per se.*
It is a fundraising initiative to support The AFC (formerly The Actors’ Fund of Canada), a national charity with a mission to help Canadian entertainment professionals maintain their health, dignity and ability to work. They provide compassionate support to everyone working in theatre, film, TV, dance, music, live performance and more.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, hundreds of industry members have turned to The AFC for help. During this challenging time, The AFC has responded to the need in the community with $1.4 million (and counting) in emergency financial aid, alongside other crucial support programs and services. Find out more and get involved at afchelps.ca.
Tickets to The Stay At Home Show are only $10 each. There are no taxes, no service charges, no other fees whatsoever.
But if you’re looking for a richer experience, choose our Premium package. It’s the same as the regular ticket but more expensive. At only $100 per premium ticket, and considering how much your enhanced donation will support the folks in the arts and entertainment industry, it's fair to say it's a bargain at double the cost. (You may want to don formal wear to complement your Premium package. But you don’t have to. You have full flexibility to do what you want, as long as you stay home.)
All proceeds — 100% to be exact — support The AFC, and each ticket comes with a tax receipt for the full ticket price.
The Stay At Home Show tickets make brilliant and appropriate souvenirs of these unprecedented times. Buy one for your scrap book or to frame and hang on your wall of mementos. They are amazing gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, any occasion.
(Note: no print-at-home tickets will be available, nor can you flash one of these tickets on your smartphone screen for admission. These tickets are the real thing: honest-to-goodness paper tickets printed on state-of-the-art Boca printers, which will soon probably go the way of the Gestetner printers, meaning obsolete.)
