Here’s how to ‘pay your age’:

When we offer single ticket sales for the Dance at the Royal Series, you can purchase your tickets from the Royal McPherson Box Office by phone at 250.386.6121 — but you must pick up your tickets yourself. Proof of age by each ticket holder (with your student ID, BCID, or Driver’s License) will be required at the time of pick-up. Check Box Office hours here to confirm that ticket pickup is possible prior to the performance date.

To order a group of PYA Tickets, please use the group order form provided here.  (To insure your booking, please return this form to Dance Victoria at [email protected] no less than two weeks prior to the performance.) Please be advised that these tickets are subject to availability and the Royal McPherson box office will add a 5 dollar handling fee to each Pay Your Age ticket in your purchase.

NOTE: Before arranging a group booking, Dance Victoria advises that you call 250.595.1829 to confirm that PYA tickets have not sold out for your chosen performance.

  • Questions? Contact Dance Victoria at [email protected]
*Unless otherwise noted, all Dance at the Royal performances are recommended for children ages 12 and up. This recommendation is based on potentially adult content and language, as well as length of performance, which may be challenging for younger children to sit through. Understanding this suggested age guideline, if you would like to purchase a ticket for a child younger than 12, please contact the Royal McPherson Box Office directly at 250-386-6121. Tickets will be honoured at the minimum Pay Your Age price of $12 plus fees. When you pick up your tickets, you will need to provide your child’s birth certificate or other proof-of-age document.
