Box Office Questions

Where is the performance venue for my show?

Please take careful note of the venue listed on our Show pages, and on the ticketing site used to book your tickets! Geordie Theatre itself is not a performance venue, and our shows are staged at venues throughout Montreal. If unsure of the address, we encourage you to Contact Us at least 24 hours before your show to ensure you make it to the correct venue with plenty of time to spare!

What can I do if I'm going to have to miss the show?

Not to worry, we at Geordie understand things come up! Up until 2 hours before the show that you have tickets for, we can exchange your tickets for another performance of the same production. Simply call our box office beforehand to arrange your exchange: (514) 845-9810 Ext. 209. Exchanges cannot be made after a missed performance.

What time should I arrive?

Doors open 30 minutes before showtime; we suggest that you arrive at least 15-20 minutes before showtime, but be aware seating is general admission. Tickets can be picked up starting 1 hour before the show.

I have a coupon/gift certificate, how do I redeem it?

To redeem a coupon or gift certificate, please call the Geordie boxoffice at (514) 845-9810 Ext. 209 and quote the certificate number. Coupons and vouchers cannot be redeemed at the door without a reservation.

I have a coupon, but I forgot to use it at the last show, can I redeem it now?

Coupons or certificates can only be used when ordering tickets and cannot be redeemed for monetary value after a ticket transaction is completed. You can hold onto the coupon and use it for another performance within the same season.

General Questions

Do you have talkback or question and answer sessions after every performance?

Our 2Play touring shows are always followed by a question and answer period. Our Mainstage shows also have a talkback after most performances, with some exceptions. Of course, if you attend a performance that does not have a talkback, or if you don’t get a chance to ask your question, feel free to contact us and we will be happy to answer you!

Is Geordie a charitable organization?

Yes! Geordie Productions Inc. is a registered charitable not-for-profit organization. Our charitable registration number is #11893 6962 RR0001. Please consider supporting us by making a tax-deductible donation.

Where does the name Geordie come from?

A “Geordie” is a name for a person from Northern England, sort of like how we call someone from Nova Scotia a “Bluenoser”. Elsa Bolam, Geordie’s Founding Artistic Director, is originally from this region in England. She’s a “Geordie” so that’s why she chose it for the name of the company!

Are there children in Geordie's plays?

The plays Geordie puts on are performed by professional adult actors. If your child is interested in learning about theatre, check out the Geordie Theatre School (GTS) for classes that culminate in a year-end show. Don’t forget: one of the best ways to hone your skills as a young actor is to watch professionals at their craft!

Who performs in Geordie's plays?

Geordie is committed to producing theatre of the highest caliber, and our Mainstage series features Montreal’s finest professional talent. We are proud to support Canadian professional actors, directors, and stage managers by working with artists who are members of the Canadian Actors Equity Association, and by working with other theatre companies who are also members of the Professional Association of Canadian Theatres (PACT).

Geordie is also committed to nurturing young talent. Every year we feature two to three emerging artists in its 2Play Tour and often draw our scripts from local playwrights. To be exact, 24 plays have been premiered by Geordie in the last 10 years many of which have gone on to achieve renown both in Canada and internationally!

Does Geordie put on plays in French?

Only under special circumstances. In the 2009-2010 Season we were thrilled to present Thrice Upon A Time… in French on Sunday, February 7th at 1pm. This was made possible as ThéâtreDynamO was touring the show in French to the rest of the province. For great French-language theatre for young audiences year-round in Montreal, check out La Maison Théâtre.
