See the opera!  See a play!  See it for $5!

ShuGo is a ticket-subsidy program to encourage youth aged 12 to 21 to attend live arts and cultural events in the Shuswap, and to help live-arts groups build their young audience. The Arts Council sells ShuGo tickets for $5 to youth aged 12 to 21. The youth themselves must purchase their own tickets.  Up to four tickets can be purchased at a time by one individual. A maximum of six tickets per year can be sold to one youth.

The ticket-holder must then make their reservation using the information provided on the ticket, stating they have a ShuGo ticket.  Participating theatres/groups may have a maximum number of reservations per show for ShuGo tickets. The ticket-holder will present their ticket to front of house upon arrival at the event.

Participating groups:

Caravan Farm Theatre

Runaway Moon Theatre

Shuswap Theatre

Northern Lights Chamber Choir

Salmar Community Association (Live in HD: The Met and Bolshoi Ballet)
