  • Pay-what-you-can tickets are a suggested price of $10, but we will accept what ever 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.
