Important Information

Trigger Warnings

PTE is proud to be a theatre that hosts new stories and new voices, and we hope everyone has a positive experience on their journey with our productions.

We want to acknowledge that, regardless of whether the performance is light-hearted or serious, there can be themes, images or language that may affect people negatively.  As a theatre, we provide audience advisories and content warnings to prepare and care for our audience. 

In many cases, a general warning of content is given to prepare audiences. However, general warning of themes may not be enough in every case. PTE honours the integrity of the playwrights and does not censor their choices, but in cases where we can anticipate some patrons may have more specific concerns, our website and box office encourage audiences to request specific advisories from our box office staff prior to arriving at the theatre. You can make that inquiry at 204-942-5483, Monday to Saturday, noon to 6, or by emailing boxoffice@pte.mb.ca.

You will also find those specific advisories on the website page of each play, under the heading TRIGGER WARNINGS.

For some, the described content may have no effect, but for others these advisories are an essential part of keeping their reception of the play a safe experience. We recognize that we will never be able to fully anticipate what might be challenging material for every individual, but our team here at the theatre is working with a consultant to generate these advisories to the best of our abilities.

Your Stories. Your Theatre.

COVID-19 Protocols for Outside Joke: The Improvised Musical

Based on consultation with our subscribers, who purchased their tickets with the understanding that there would be safety protocols in place, PTE will maintain the both the requirement to show proof of vaccination before entering the lobby, and wearing a mask at all times (except when taking a sip of a beverage). We are reducing the house capacity to 245, which allows some distance in the theatre.

Thank you for understanding that our greatest concern is for the health and safety for our patrons, staff and artists.
