Access Shakespeare Pay-What-You-Can Program

This season, we are continuing our Access Shakespeare Pay-What-You-Can for patrons whose disability requires the use of our ASL-interpreted and Open-captioned services. Understanding that patrons requiring this service 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 $78 to as low as $20.

For Tug of War: Civil Strife choose a ticket price ranging from our full-price of $105 to as low as $60.

For both single ticket and subscription purchases, we are happy to extend this Pay-What-You-Can Program 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.
