  • The only acceptable form of entry for the contest is by email, sent to contests@mooneyontheatre.com (Mooney on Theatre will never use your email address for anything other than to reply to the specific contest you entered, and we certainly would never sell it or anything like that)

  • Entrants must be available on the day and time listed in the contest. The tickets are available for that showing only, and cannot be transferred to another date.
  • The winning entrants will be chosen by a random drawing.
  • Winners will be notified by email by 9pm on the day of contest closing and need to confirm their attendance 10am AT THE LATEST the following morning so that their names can be given to the theatre company for tickets to be set aside.
  • Photo I.D. may be required to claim the winning tickets.
  • Tickets must be picked up 60 to 30 minutes before show time at the venue box office. The box office reserves the right to release any tickets not picked up 15 minutes before show time.
  • We ask that all winners provide us with a quick blurb on what they thought of the show, either in the comments section of the press release on Mooney on Theatre, or if it has already been reviewed by Mooney on Theatre in the comments section of that.

One thought on “Fringe for Free! Toronto Fringe ticket giveaways for shows playing on Thursday, July 5th”

  1. Thank you so much for the ticket to snug harbour.

    I knew going in that this would be a different show from “The Burning Bush” because I’d heard Tracey on CBC’s The Current. It is a very poignant show combined with a workshop. I was very moved. There are several funny moments but what you get is Tracey expressing raw emotion, grief and anger over the loss of her dad. And it’s so much more than talking about grief, but also gives insight into how those of us who are slaves to “goal lists” live our lives.

    This is well worth getting there early and waiting in line for since it’s sure to sell out for the rest of the run. So go see it now!
