$20 tickets...what's the catch?
There isn’t one! We are committed to making our productions accessible for everyone, so this initiative was designed to fit the budget of students and young professionals under 35 years old.

You can purchase up to two CST for $20 tickets per production, which are subject to availability by performance. They are non-exchangeable, non-refundable and non-transferable. Handling fees still apply. Only the person who purchased tickets must present valid ID showing proof of age when picking them up at Will Call.

Where will my seats be located?
Your select CST for $20 seating will vary by production and availability. But, in Chicago Shakespeare’s two intimate theaters, there’s not a bad seat in the house!

Are $20 tickets available for every performance?
We have allocated thousands of tickets across the entire season. Once you enter the CST for $20 promo code, all performances with available CST for $20 tickets will appear in the drop-down list. Tickets to our most popular shows sell quickly, so buy early for the best chance to get your first choice.

What if I'm 35 or older?
If you do not fit the age requirements of CST for $20, you can join CST’s email list to receive information on upcoming productions. If you know someone under 35 who would enjoy attending Chicago Shakespeare, please consider sharing information about CST for $20 with them. We will send an e-mail that includes your personalized message and a link to information about CST for $20.
