Frequently Asked PWYC Questions:
So, I can really pay whatever I want? Yes! We don't give out free tickets, but we accept cash, checks, and credit cards for payment. Our suggested price is $15 per ticket - a truly incredible deal!
What is a Preview Performance? A preview performance is an opportunity for the cast and crew to fine tune the show based on the response of a live audience. Sometimes there will be changes made prior to opening night, but it is a full performance with all theatrical elements in place.
Can I buy a ticket online/over the phone/in advance? Nope! All tickets will be sold at the door.
How can I ensure myself a seat? We can't make any guarantees, but we recommend that patrons arrive at the theater as early as they can to grab a spot in line. Our box office will start selling tickets 1 hour before each performance, but we can't take any reservations before then.
The second and third performances of every production are previews.
