COVID-19 MIRVISH TICKET GUARANTEE – FLEXIBILITY FOR OUR PATRONS 

The COVID-19 Mirvish Ticket Guarantee is available to all patrons with paid tickets to shows at any of the Mirvish Theatres. Our goal is to be as flexible as possible in order to provide you with the assurance to make ticket purchases with confidence.

  • If any level of government puts any restrictions in place prohibiting large gatherings at venues and your show or presentation is canceled, you will receive, at your request, a credit on your Mirvish account, a gift card or a full refund for that performance.
  • If your show or performance is postponed or rescheduled, we will automatically move your tickets to a new date; however, you will still have the option of asking for a credit on your Mirvish account, a gift card or a full refund for that performance.
  • If you, or any member of your party, are in quarantine or isolation, have come in close contact with someone with COVID-19, are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or have tested positive for COVID-19, do not visit the theatre. We are offering flexible ticket exchanges, credit on your Mirvish account, a gift card or a full refund up to 24 hours prior to the date on your tickets. Please call 1.800.461.3333 or email audienceservices@mirvish.com prior to your showtime.

The COVID-19 Mirvish Ticket Guarantee is not available for past performance dates and times.


How and Where to Buy Tickets

Tickets for all performances at the Royal Alexandra Theatre, the Princess of Wales Theatre, the CAA Theatre, the Ed Mirvish Theatre - and for other special events for which Mirvish Productions acts as ticket agent - can be purchased online through its website (www.mirvish.com) or mobile application, by telephone, or at the Mirvish theatre box offices. Please note that all tickets purchased online or by phone are subject to service charges that may vary from event to event. Service charges are the same online and by phone. There are no service charges on purchases made at the theatre box offices. 

A Ticket is a Revocable Licence to Attend a Specific Performance

The holder of a valid ticket is admitted to the theatre on the condition that the holder agrees, and by use of the ticket does so agree in favour of the Producers or Presenters and the theatre owner (Mirvish Productions), to the following terms and conditions of ticket purchase and sale set out herein. Any violation of these terms will entitle Mirvish Productions to, as applicable, seize or cancel the ticket, withdraw the license granted below, refuse admission and/or expel a ticket-holder, in each case without payment of any refund or other compensation. The ticket is a personal, revocable license. Lost, stolen or destroyed tickets may not be honoured. The ticket may not be used for advertising, promotion or for any other trade purposes. 

Patrons must occupy their assigned seats and may not move to other locations in the theatre without permission. 

In addition to the foregoing, Mirvish Productions reserves the right to expel any ticket holder from the theatre whenever Mirvish Productions in its sole discretion determines that a ticket holder is disrupting the performance or other patrons or behaving inappropriately. 

Ticket Sales

All ticket sales are final; there are no refunds or exchanges. Each ticket includes HST (# 10157 5844) and a $3.25 CIF (Capital Improvement Fund) charge. All prices are in Canadian funds. Full payment is required at time of booking, unless otherwise stated. Tickets will only be released to the purchaser once the ticket order is paid in full, unless the ticket has a zero value. 

Ticket Prices

Mirvish Productions, Producers and/or Presenters reserve the right to change prices without prior notice and are entitled to implement ticket purchase limits per person or account holder, per credit card or otherwise (and either per performance or for the entire show engagement). 

If the amount paid for a ticket is incorrect (regardless of whether it is incorrect because of an error in a price posted for sale or otherwise communicated through marketing emails, or printed materials, etc), if the purchaser is able to order a ticket before its scheduled on-sale or presale date, or if a ticket was purchased that was not supposed to have been released for sale, then Mirvish Productions has the right to cancel that ticket (or the order for that ticket) and refund the purchaser the amount paid. This will apply regardless of whether the error occurred because of human error or a transactional malfunction of the ticketing system. If a refund is processed in error, or a refund exceeds the original amount paid, we reserve the right to recharge the original method of payment used at time of purchase. 

The actual tickets delivered by mail, email, accessed through an online account or at any Mirvish theatre box office, reflect the face value of the ticket and CIF (Capital Improvement Fund). Any applicable order fees or taxes and/or service charges will appear where applicable. Mailing fees and/or additional event fees may not be broken out on the ticket, which means the prices on the ticket may not add up to the total paid on the payment confirmation. 

Ticket Limits

Mirvish Productions, Producers and/or Presenters reserve the right to impose limits on ticket purchases. Such limits will be posted on the Mirvish Productions website (www.mirvish.com) prior to the sale of tickets or when such limits are introduced. If the purchaser exceeds or attempts to exceed the posted ticket limits, Mirvish Productions reserve the right to cancel, without notice, any or all orders and tickets, in addition to prohibiting the purchasers ticket purchasing abilities. Any tickets canceled due to violating the posted ticket limit may be refunded at face value (excluding fees). This includes orders associated with the same name, e-mail address, billing address, credit card number, or other personal information.

Payments

Mirvish Productions accepts the following payment types: American Express, Discover Card, MasterCard, MasterCard Debit, VISA, and Visa Debt. In addition to the above, Interac and Cash are accepted at the theatre box offices. 

Only contactless payments are being accepted at this time. No cash or cheque payments. We apologize for this inconvenience. 

Payment Instalments & Timing

Instalment payments are only valid on select Subscription and Group orders, unless otherwise stated. By placing an order and paying the order in instalments where permitted, the purchaser is responsible for providing a valid credit card (or other electronic funds transfer option where permitted), to be charged according to the payment plan schedule, for the duration of the instalment plan, until the order is paid in full. 

All instalments must be paid on or before the instalment date(s) that are set at the time of purchase. Any failure to make a payment when due (deposit, instalment or final balance) will result in a suspension of any further activity on the account until that payment has been made. The purchaser will have up to 15 days to clear the default payment, with the exception of the final payment. A $25.00 service charge will be applied for any instalment that cannot be processed for reasons not under the control of Mirvish Productions; including, but not limited to: an invalid or expired credit card and funds not received electronically. 

Mirvish Productions reserves the right to refuse or discontinue the payment plan at any time due to a failed payment. If Mirvish Productions is unable to process the default payment within 15 days from the due date or the final instalment is not paid by the final payment date, Mirvish Productions reserves the right to cancel the balance of the order. All attempts will be made by Mirvish Productions to communicate the account in errs to the purchaser by phone, email or written letter before canceling the order. 

Payment Disputes

The ticket-holder or their guests will not attempt to evade, avoid, or circumvent any refund prohibitions in any manner with regard to tickets purchased. Without limiting the foregoing, you will not contact Mirvish Productions, their theatres or authorized agents to seek a refund or exchange when that is prohibited hereunder or by the rules or policies of Mirvish Productions, the show, Presenter or Producer, and you will not dispute or otherwise seek a “chargeback” from the company whose credit card you used to purchase tickets. Should the ticket-holder or their guests do so, the tickets may be canceled, and Mirvish Productions may, in its sole discretion, refuse to honor pending and future ticket purchases made from all credit card accounts or online accounts on which such chargebacks have been made, and may prohibit future ticket purchases by any person who accesses or uses any associated online account or credit card (including any person whose name is listed thereon) or who otherwise breaches this provision. 

Ticket Allocation and On-sale Dates

Mirvish Productions operates in Ontario, Canada and adheres to the Ticket Sales Act, 2017 (S.O. 2017, c. 33, Sched. 3 as amended).
