According to the Dekker Centre the way it works is as follows:

A live stream ticket can be purchased through their website the same way as for an in-person performance.

Live streaming tickets are sold on a “Pay What You Will” system where the customer picks the amount they wish to pay per person, with increments starting at $10.

The Dekker Centre will then send a link and password 24 to 48 hours ahead of the show which provides access to the performance on their website. The customer can then enjoy the show from home.

The Dekker Centre has also announced their “December Homegrown Openers” will be performing ahead of A Very Prairie Christmas with Jeffery Straker from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., so be sure to tune in early. The performers opening for Straker are Jackie Kroczynski and Ned & Jacob.

All patrons who purchased tickets for A Very Prairie Christmas, whether in person or for the live stream, will also receive a “Buy One Get One Free” coupon for any of Cafe4U’s Christmas beverages. Those using the live stream will receive the coupon through email. It is one coupon per person and is valid Dec. 7, 2020 to Jan. 6, 2021.
