COVID-19 STATEMENT & UPDATES




The Segal Centre is committed to the safety, health, and well-being of our staff, artists, students, patrons, and guests. As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to evolve quickly, the Segal Centre is closely monitoring the situation and will keep you apprised of any changes. Please check back often for updates.

In response to government protocols and in joining in worldwide efforts to stem the spread of this pandemic, please note that the Segal Centre is currently closed and the rest of the 2019-2020 season has been suspended. 

For cancelled events and performances, we are keeping with our commitment to customer service and we have extended our flexible subscriber exchange policy to all ticket holders. We are happy to work with any patrons to exchange or credit their tickets for a future production.

If we can promise one thing it is that we want to make all these wonderful events and shows happen. We can’t answer when they will happen at this time but we look forward to sharing them all with you when the theatre is reopened. We miss you and our beloved Segal Centre terribly!

This is a difficult time for the arts and culture worldwide. If you are in the position to help, please consider donating the value of your cancelled ticket back to the Segal as a tax-deductible contribution. The Segal Centre is a non-profit organization and we need and appreciate your support more than ever.

Please contact the Box Office at 514.739.7944 or email to info@segalcentre.org for more information.

 

Ticketholders for affected performances and events will be contacted. We ask for your patience and understanding as our team works to address your inquiries. Please know that we are committed to helping you as soon as possible, and we sincerely appreciate your support.
