Pay What You Can

Yes, we’re serious about you determining the price of your ticket.

We’re committed to making our shows accessible to all. We introduced the pay-what-you-can ticketing model to Houston, ensuring anyone who can get to our shows can get into them.

Our suggested ticket price of $35 isn’t based on what it costs to produce a show—that would be much more—or the role we believe money should play in creating art—that would be much less. It’s a suggestion for those who’ve asked for one, a comfortable starting point as you choose your price.

For some people, $50 is a lot of money. For others, $5 is.

We’re counting on you to let us know what’s right for you. If you can afford to, please consider paying a little extra to help cover those who can’t.

Please Read Carefully

  1. No late seating
    Please arrive at the theatre at least 10 minutes before the performance. Tickets not picked up 5 minutes before show time will be released to the waiting list.
  2. All ticket sales are final
    If you are unable to attend, we will gladly exchange your tickets for another performance or even another production. All exchanges are on a space-available basis.
  3. All tickets are general admission
    Seating is first come first served.  Seating varies by venue. If you have special seating requirements, please contact the box office.
  4. Mature audiences
    Most of our plays include mature themes and are intended for adult audiences. Some may also include sexual situations, violence, or frank language. Please contact the box office if you have questions about a particular play. Small children who might disturb other audience members will not be admitted.
