Fringe for Free! Toronto Fringe ticket giveaways for shows playing on Thursday, July 9th

Fringe For Free GraphicWow. Time sure has flown. First week of the Toronto Fringe Festival is done. Mooney on Theatre has finished reviewing all the shows, and despite the collective exhaustion of the editorial team, we’re still going strong, just like the festival.

This is your second last chance to win tickets to Fringe for Free. These five draws are for shows playing on Thursday July 9th.

And, remember to check tomorrow for our final set of ticket ticket giveaways . You can enter each of the five contests by sending us an email (more details below).

Remember, you need to enter each contest individually. If we pick your name, you’ve got two tickets heading your way, so watch out for that confirmation e-mail!

Here are the 5 shows playing on Thursday, July 9th, after the jump.

Contest Rules:

To enter, send an email to contests@mooneyontheatre.com. Please put the show’s title in the subject line, and ensure we have your full name in the body. (We promise that your email address will not be used for any other purpose: it will not be added to any mailing lists, sold to third parties, or anything like that.)

  • Each email counts as a single entry. If you want to enter all 5 contests, you must send 5 emails.
  • Tickets are non-transferable and are only for the date and time indicated below. Tickets may not be exchanged. Please ensure you can attend the performance listed.
  • All entries must be received by 7 PM on the day before the performance. The drawing will be held at 9 PM, and winners will be informed immediately. Winners are required to confirm their attendance by 10 AM on the morning of the performance.
  • Tickets will be held in your name at the venue box office, available 1 hour before the performance. Tickets will only be held until 15 minutes before curtain: any comps left unclaimed at that juncture may be sold.
