About the ACT Pass program for Families and Individuals - Tickets
CTC's ACT Pass program increases equity and inclusion by providing over 10,000 accessible $5 tickets to audiences traditionally excluded from professional arts experiences due to economic disparities and hardship. Eligibility is established using the free and reduced lunch household income guidelines, statement of need, and recognition of other barriers to participation. Once approved, ACT Pass membership lasts for 2 years. All ACT Pass holders automatically qualify for scholarships to Theatre Arts Training classes and camps.

How do I purchase ACT Pass tickets? Children’s Theatre Company will email all ACT Pass-holders when ACT Pass tickets become available for purchase online. Eligible dates for each show will be listed below as titles go on sale. 

ACT Pass tickets for the 2018-2019 Season will go on sale on the following dates:

The Hobbit: Thursday, March 21, 11am - just released new dates: Apr 4 and Apr 11

Matilda the Musical: Thursday, March 28, 11am


IMPORTANT: You do not need to wait for an email on each on-sale date to get your tickets; just log into your account starting at 11 am. Do not ‘unsubscribe’ from CTC emails as it will prevent you from receiving reminders about the ACT Pass dates, and 

LIMIT: 6 tickets per household, per production, non-transferable. ACT Pass tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded.

If you can’t use your ACT Pass tickets for any reason, please contact the Ticket Office prior to your show at 612.874.0400 or tickets@childrenstheatre.org to turn them back for a tax deductible contribution. ACT Pass-holders who do not adhere to the 6 ticket limit or who transfer tickets to another household may lose eligibility. In order to fulfill our goal that all ACT Pass tickets are used, we do track attendance.
