A sponsorship includes certain benefits, such as tickets for your guests, the value of which are deducted from your receipt. For example, Presenting, Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsorships include logo representation at the event and an ad in the performance playbill, among other benefits. These sponsors will receive a business receipt for the total value of the sponsorship. Friend, Ticket, Solo Act and Stay-at-Home sponsors will receive tickets to the event along with a donation receipt for the maximum amount allowable. Per CRA guidelines, we are required to deduct the value of the benefit that one obtains with a sponsorship (i.e. the value of tickets). Click here to see the available sponsorships.
When you make a donation you will receive a donation receipt for the full amount for income tax purposes. No tickets or benefits are provided – just the warm feeling associated with helping Baycrest while someone you care about risks public humiliation.

We have decided that the show must go on and are planning for both. A live performance for as many guests as the theatre can accommodate safely as well as live-streamed for supporters that prefer the comfort of their couch.
Per Ontario public health measures, you will be required to wear a mask or face covering in all areas of the theatre.
To attend the show in person, per Ontario public health measures, you you must be fully vaccinated – that means you have received two doses of an approved vaccine at least 14 days before the event date. Upon arrival at the theatre, you will be asked to provide proof of vaccination and photo ID.
Q: Will seating be socially distanced? Will I still be able to sit with the group I purchased tickets with?
Yes, seating will be socially distanced. We intend to seat people together in pods when they come from the same group.
