Each main stage production has a preview performance the day before the show officially opens. Previews are a great opportunity for our cast and crew to perform with a hearty audience, and also allow patrons to see the production at a discount. Single tickets are available at the following price points:
Platinum level ticket - $27
Gold level ticket - $17
Silver level ticket - $10
This season we are bringing back a blast from the past - $10 Tuesdays! For Tuesday performances, purchase Silver level tickets to our mainstage season for only $10 each!
Please note: There was a misprint on the calendar in our 2020 Season Booklet, labeling the June 9 performance of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) as a $10 Tuesday. This performance is general admission, and the silver-level discount does not apply. We apologize for any confusion.
The offer is available for the following performances:
July 14 – Measure for Measure
July 21 – One Man, Two Guvnors
July 28 – One Man, Two Guvnors
August 4 – Macbeth
