Access Shakespeare Pay-What-You-Can Program
Understanding that patrons participating in our access programs represent a broad financial spectrum, we’re putting it in their hands to pay what they can, to ensure that our productions are as available as possible, to the widest audience possible. Choose a ticket price ranging from our full-price of $88 to as low as $35. For both single ticket and subscription purchases, we are happy to offer a limited number of Pay-What-You-Can Program seats to the patron whose disability requires the use of this service and to one companion. Additional tickets can, of course, be purchased at full price.

To purchase Access Shakespeare Pay-What-You-Can single tickets or season tickets, please contact our Box Office during regular business hours. Please purchase your tickets in advance to participate in our Access programs: ASL duo-interpretation, open captioning or audio description.  Programs with no attendance may be cancelled 48 hours prior to the show.
