I have tickets to a rescheduled show - what do I need to do?
Your original ticket(s) is/are still valid for the new date so please hold on to them. Nothing else needs to be done on your part and you do not need to confirm with the Box Office.
What should I do if I can't make the rescheduled date?

If you cannot make the new date, call the Box Office at 905.305.7469 as you have four options:

  1. Donate the value of your ticket(s) to the Theatre and receive a tax receipt

  2. Keep the value of your ticket(s) as a credit on your account to be used in the future

  3. Have the value transferred to a gift certificate

  4. Receive a refund of your original purchase

For what can I use an account credit or gift certificate?
An account credit, or gift certificate, can be used towards any future ticket or subscription purchase(s) for the Flato Markham Theatre Diamond Season.
I would like a refund for ticket(s) that I purchased. Can you process the refund for me? (Rescheduled/Cancelled shows only. All other ticket purchases are final)
Due to federal payment privacy laws, the Theatre's system does not keep credit card information on record. In order to process a refund one of our agents will need to obtain your credit card number again. 
Please do not leave your credit card number on the Theatre's voice mail.
How long will my refund take?
Prior to the pandemic, the refund would be processed by your credit card company in 2-5 days.  However, as all companies are dealing with an influx of refunds, we have found that the processing time, with the credit card companies, may take longer. 
Can I still rent space at the theatre?
Yes, the Flato Markham Theatre is available for rent. For theatre rental inquiries, please contact Scott Hill at
