La Slague continues to offer the solidarity pricing system

For the 2021-2022 season, Carrefour francophone and La Slague are letting you decide how much to pay to attend our shows or purchase our artistic products.

Why are we doing this?

  • Because rich and rewarding cultural experiences should be available to everyone.
  • Because all of Sudbury’s Francophones and Francophiles should be welcome in a supportive and vibrant community.
  • Because belonging to a culture and the quality of life fostered by the arts are human rights.

How much should your ticket cost?

Following a number of comments and suggestions, we decided to redefine our solidarity ticketing categories to make them more inclusive and more representative of the public who attend our events.

We now opt for a “pay what you can” approach, so that our spectators feel comfortable choosing the rate that suits their current situation. What’s more, the Welcome Ticket gives new spectators the opportunity to discover our activities without judgement or compromise.

Here are the new categories !

Easy Peasy ticket
Regular Ticket

A ticket to make your life easier. An ordinary, simple and easy ticket option. You want to pay the show’s worth? Then, congratulations! You’ve chosen the easiest option… with no snags or complications!

Good Scout ticket
Solidarity Ticket

A ticket to help us out when things are going your way. You love cultural events and you want to lend us a helping hand? The Good Scout Ticket is what you’re looking for! So give yourself a good pat on the back, you’ve paid the show’s worth…and more!

No Stress ticket
Reduced Ticket

A ticket so you can enjoy the show without worrying too much about the price. Are you a student or a senior? Do you have a lot of unexpected expenses this month? You’re always showing up at cultural events but it’s starting to hurt your wallet? No stress, we got you! We want you to enjoy the show… and get a drink if you want to!

Welcome ticket
Free Ticket

A ticket for your first cultural experience. We promise you a good time. So your first show is on us. You know someone who’s curious about la Slague and you want them to join in and enjoy the show? Offer them a Welcome Ticket, and they’ll have fun, that’s for sure!


We would like to thank the Théâtre Cercle Molière in Winnipeg, which inspired this new payment scale!

La Slague is a member of the Coalition for Fair Ticketing, which brings together cultural organizations wishing to jointly reflect on best accessibility ticketing practices and thus promote access to art and culture.

La Place des Arts du Grand Sudbury is La Slague’s official box office.

La Slague's Evolution

La Slague was established in 1964 by the Centre des jeunes de Sudbury. After many years of success, La Slague went dormant, and then reappeared for a time in the mid-1980s as a community-based volunteer organization. With La Slague’s renaissance in 2006 as part of the Carrefour francophone, a third generation of concert promotion activities was afoot.
