Frequently Asked Questions

What if I can’t make a performance on the 2024 season schedule?

We know that everyone is busy and sometimes you just can’t do everything. For that reason, FFDN UNPARALLELED allows members to transfer their tickets to a different show. For example, if you are busy on February 1 when we go to see Carmen, just let us know. We can get you two tickets to Swan Lakes or one of our other shows, instead.  


How do I sign up and pay?

Send an email to unparalleled@ffdnorth.com to sign up. We will reach out to collect payment for the ticket subscription ($150).Your tax-deductible charitable donation will be made through Canada Helps and a charitable receipt will be issued for the full amount of the donation ($300).  Monthly payment plans are also available for the donation portion and can start as low as $25/month.  


Can I bring a friend?

Absolutely! The more the merrier! FFDN UNPARALLELED has a bring a friend option with your subscription. Sign up for one membership ($450 total including the charitable donation) and you can add a Bring a Guest ticket subscription for $150.
