PHILADELPHIA, PA – Walnut Street Theatre is excited to announce two new programs to make live theatre available to a wider audience. The new programs are Access$2Walnut and $30 Under 40. Access$2Walnut is generously supported by PNC Arts Alive.
Access$2Walnut aims to engage those in our community who may have financial barriers accessing the live theatre experience. The program provides $2 best available tickets on the day of show, subject to availability, throughout the season to mainstage productions for those with PA ACCESS, NJ or DE EBT, or Art-Reach ACCESS cards. Eligible guests may purchase up to four tickets per household per production, either by phone (215-574-3550) or in person beginning at noon for that day’s evening performance or beginning 24 hours in advance for matinee performances. Tickets must be picked up at the box office, where guests must provide proof of eligibility by presenting their PA ACCESS, NJ or DE EBT, or Art-Reach ACCESS cards. This program is made possible through a generous grant from PNC Arts Alive.
The new $30 Under 40 program is aimed at developing a wider audience for people under 40 years old by providing $30 tickets to every show. Members of Walnut’s $30 Under 40 program will be able to purchase up to two best available $30 tickets for each Walnut Street Theatre production. $30 Under 40 members will also be invited to exclusive post-show parties on select nights, where they will have the opportunity to meet the artists and mingle with other $30 Under 40 members. Free and easy to join, $30 Under 40 seats will be available for almost every performance of each production.
The Walnut is committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to experience the transformative power of live theatre. In addition to these two new programs a variety of other discounts are available and can be found on the Walnut’s website.
