WHAT TIME SHOULD I BE THERE?
The cocktail reception is at 6.00pm and the show starts at 7:30 pm. Please come as close to 6.00pm as you can to enjoy the full evening. The doors to go in the main room will be open at 7:00pm. That will give you half an hour to find your table and get settled. You don’t need to line up at the door.
CAN I BRING MY KIDS?
The show has been sold as a corporate/adult event so we recommend that you leave your kids home and enjoy the evening with friends. People will drink and some of them will drink too much so it's not an environment for younger kids. If your children are older and you're comfortable with this environment, feel free to bring them along if they have a ticket.
HOW DO I FIND MY SEAT?
If you've purchased your tickets online, they will be mailed out about 3 weeks before the show. Your seat was assigned to a table when you purchased your tickets and is also prioritized by major sponsors, table sponsors, Club Fusion members, full tables and then individual tickets. You’ll find the table number on the back of your ticket. We will have floor plans at the doors and volunteers to help you out as well.
CAN I CHANGE TABLE?
Unfortunately no. All tickets that were bought together are sitting together. We can’t change that as all the tickets have been sent out to other guests. If you want to add an extra seat to your table at the last minute, we can perhaps accommodate you. Just email us.
WILL I GET MY TICKETS IN THE MAIL?
All the tickets bought before November 8th will be sent in the mail. The rest will be at the reception desk at the Convention Center the night of the show. If you’re unsure, please email Matt@lesproductionsfusion.com
WILL YOU HAVE FOOD AVAILABLE DURING THE EVENING?
Due to the high cost of producing this show, we don’t serve food at the show. If we did, your ticket would be double the price. :-) Please eat before the show. A cash bar will be open throughout the evening.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
It's not often we get to dress up, so shine those shoes and let’s have some fun! You don't have to dust off your prom dress, but dress as though you are going to a wine gala. Fellas… don’t stress over it. Wear a nice dress shirt (tie is optional) and yes make sure to iron it first!
DO YOU SUPPORT A CHARITY WITH FUSION?
The Fredericton show will support CMHA of New Brunswick. As the nation-wide leader and champion for mental health, CMHA facilitates access to the resources people require to maintain and improve mental health and community integration, build resilience, and support recovery from mental illness. There will be auction items on display at the event, a live auction and a 50/50 draw. All money raised will stay in Fredericton in your community.

CAN I BUY ART AT THE SHOW AND WHAT IS THE PROCESS?
You certainly can! Matt LeBlanc is bringing his latest collection of original abstract artworks and twenty-five percent of all art sales are being donated back to the CMHA during this event. The art can be purchase until midnight. If you want to purchase art, someone will be there to help you out. You will need to go to the reception desk to make your purchase. Art can only be taken off the wall when we start the after party (around midnight). We do this so everyone can have the time to view the art. If you need to leave early, we will make sure to deliver the art, free of charge.
DO YOU USE LOCAL ARTISTS IN THE SHOW?
YES! There are over 75 artists (singers/dancers/musicians/gymnasts/makeup artists/designers and other performers) participating in the show. Most of them are very young, giving them a great opportunity to shine on the big stage. That’s one of the main goals of the show. Participants from previous years are telling us that the show has really helped them propel their career. The show also has over 75 hand-painted and handmade costume, which are all stunning, by the way.
IS THE SHOW IN ENGLISH ONLY?
All the speeches, material and marketing are bilingual. Unfortunately the narration (story) of FUSION will be in English only. The videos for the story take about 6 months to create (concept, shooting and editing). It’s not possible to have the storyline in two languages. This is the best-case scenario for our bilingual audience. Please note that FUSION has a fully francophone show in Caraquet after having great success this past year. The next one will be there in 2018.
