NAC performances for just $11

If you're a full-time student ages 13-29, you are eligible to become a Live Rush™ member (www.liverush.ca) and be able to purchase tickets to NAC performances for $11. The NAC is the National Arts Centre located downtown and the performances include theatre, music, dance, and opera. You can buy 2 Live Rush™ tickets per member, per performance, so you can bring a friend!

This is how it works. Live Rush™ tickets for theatre, music and dance go on sale starting at 2:00 pm on the day before the performance, and until 6:00 pm on the day of the performance. Tickets purchased online can be picked up at the NAC Box Office any time until the curtain rises or avoid the line-up and print your e-ticket at home for an extra $1.75 per order. Opera Lyra Ottawa tickets are $15 and are available from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm on the day of the performance with some seating restrictions.

When purchasing and picking up Live Rush™ tickets or when entering the hall you will be required to present proof of age, full-time Student ID or equivalent (bus pass, ISIC card, etc.) and a valid, registered Live Rush™ card. You can get a card in several locations around Ottawa (liverush.ca/en/ottawa/aboutrush/card.html), one of which is at Carleton (CKCU-FM studio on the 5th floor of the Unicentre).

I have used this deal for years now, and I enjoy their dance performances and their operas the most.

Enjoy the show!
