How can I find out about eyeGO eligible show listings and times?

The easiest way is to go to the eyeGO web site at, or if you have heard about a show that you would like to see check the event details.

If I buy an eyeGO ticket will I have bad seats?

eyeGO tickets are sold on a best available basis. If you buy your tickets early enough you could have the best seats in the house!

How can I buy tickets?

Visit the box office in person to buy an eyeGO ticket. Be sure to bring your student card with you. If you pre-register, you may purchase your ticket online or on the phone.

How do I pre-register?

Send a fax copy of your student ID, including a photo and grade to 613-580-2705. Please be sure to include a cover letter with your contact information and email address. Your registration will be processed and account information will be sent to you via email within 2 business days.

What if I don’t have a student card?

No problem! Just ask a teacher at your school to send eyeGO to the Arts a letter on school letterhead stating that you are enrolled for the current school year. eyeGO to the Arts will then send you a card that you can show in place of a student card. You must also have a secondary form of ID.

Do I have to get dressed up to go to an eyeGO to the Arts performance?

Clothes that are appropriate at school are also acceptable for a performance.

Will I be guaranteed an eyeGO ticket if I ask for one?

There are only a certain number of seats made available for eyeGO tickets for each show. The box office is not obligated to hold those tickets for eyeGO students, so if the show is selling well then all seats may be sold. Bottom line – if you want an eyeGO ticket, act fast before the show sells out!

How many tickets can I buy?

You are permitted to buy one ticket for yourself, for as many eyeGO performances as you want. You may also purchase additional tickets at the regular price for others.

As a parent, if I have a child who is not yet in high school, can I purchase an eyeGO ticket for them?

No. This program is designed to encourage secondary school students to choose to see performances as a form of recreation. It is based on the student making an independent decision to see performances. As younger children require a parent to make decisions for them, it is therefore not appropriate. In addition, the student must present ID to purchase the ticket. The parent cannot do this on their behalf.
