FAMILY WEEK AT THE SONY CENTRE

Presented by the Toronto Star and Toyota

From February 19-27, adults who purchase a full price ticket to select Sony Centre shows will receive a child’s ticket for free!
Family Week at the Sony Centre is designed to introduce young people to the magic of the performing arts and make live entertainment accessible to a new generation of theatre lovers. Research proves that the majority of kids who were taken to the theatre in their youth, become theatre-going adults.

“Family programming is an essential part of the Sony Centre’s mandate to be Toronto’s theatre for the people – all people,” said Dan Brambilla, CEO of the Sony Centre For The Performing Arts, “and our family programming is chosen with a view to entertain families from every segment of the city’s diverse population.”

For specific performances between March 1 and May 29, kids aged 2-12 can see a participating show for FREE when accompanied by a full-paying adult.  Tickets must be purchased during Family Week, February 19-27. Participating shows include:
