Access Shakespeare Pay-What-You-Can Program

This season, we are continuing our Access Shakespeare Pay-What-You-Can for patrons utilizing our audio-described services. Understanding that patrons participating in this program 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 $68 to as low as $20.

For both single ticket and subscription purchases, we are happy to extend this Pay-What-You-Can Program to the patron utilizing the service and to one companion.
