Pay-What-You-Can rules are as follows:

  • Pay-What-You-Can tickets are a suggested price of $10, but we will accept whatever you feel you can afford.
  • Limit of two (2) tickets per customer as there are a limited number of Pay-what-you-can tickets set aside.
  • Pay-What-You-Can tickets go on sale at 12 noon on the day of the performance.
  • Tickets must be purchased in person.
  • Seating is limited to designated areas.
