Frequently Asked Questions

Call 780-872-7400 ext. 1 to reach the Box Office. Patrons who wish to use cash or debit only must purchase tickets in person.

How do I get a student rate or senior rate on the tickets I purchase online?

(Vic Juba Community Theatre generally has one ticket price for our Dr. H. A. McDonald Season performances.) After you choose your seats, our system will show you one ticket price or a list of possible options (if offerred). If the presenter of the event has student or senior prices, you can change the price on each seat at this point.
