The drive-in performances take place at New Life Church in Collingwood – 28 Tracey Ln. Doors will open at least 1 hour prior to each event to ensure timely positioning of all the vehicles.
Are the performances live?
Yes, each performance takes place live with all artists performing at New Life Church’s acoustically-sound auditorium. Digital audiences will also be able to watch a simulcast of the performances live from their homes.
Where do I park?
All cars will be carefully positioned throughout the New Life Church’s spacious parking lot, in order to ensure an optimal viewing experience from all angles. Upon arrival on the church premises, parking attendants will guide your vehicle to the next available position.
All spaces are first-come-first-served in their respective section. All guests will remain in their cars for the duration of the opera. Guests are expected to wear face coverings if they need to leave their cars for any reason such as visiting the restroom.

I ordered a drive-in ticket, but didn't receive my QR code in the email. What should I do?
Some patrons have reported that the QR code is showing as a “broken image link icon” or not showing up at all in their ticket email. This may be related to their email client. Several email clients have a setting for whether to automatically download images in emails. If this is disabled, the QR code won’t show in the email.
However, you should have also received a PDF ticket as an attachment in your ticket email. Please double-check if the QR code shows up in this document, as this is all you would need to print out and display upon arrival.
If you are missing the QR code in your email and have not received a PDF ticket attachment, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can find an alternative way to send you the ticket.
