Families and Individuals


CTC’s ACT Pass program increases equity and inclusion by providing accessible $5 tickets and Theatre Arts Training scholarships of up to 80% off tuition to audiences traditionally excluded from professional arts experiences due to economic disparities and hardship. Currently, the ACT Pass program includes over 2,000 families.

Eligibility for the ACT Pass program is established using free and reduced lunch household income guidelines, a statement of need, and recognition of other barriers to participation. Once approved, ACT Pass membership lasts for 2 years.

Community Groups


CTC invites eligible organizations directly serving low income youth, mentors, and families to become an ACT Pass Community Group!

Eligible ACT Pass Community Groups may access select performances and coordinate families to attend a show together, as a group. ACT Pass group ticket orders require 10 or more participants and cost $5 per ticket.

Restrictions: Because we also have an accessible student matinee program, school groups and school-based parent associations are not eligible for the ACT Pass to public shows. There is a limit of 50 tickets per order.

FAQs


Live Performance FAQ

How do I purchase ACT Pass tickets?

  • Log into your account before selecting your dates and seats.
  • Select adult, child, or senior tickets in Section A or B.
  • Select the “Add to Cart” button below the seating chart when you’re ready to review your purchase.
  • When you get to your cart, you’ll see your discounted price displayed!

 

Is there a limit to how many tickets I can purchase?

To ensure access to as many ACT Pass members as possible, there is a limit of 6 tickets per household, per production. Tickets may not be purchased by non-ACT Pass families. We do track usage throughout the season. ACT Pass members who purchase beyond the ticket limit risk expulsion from the program.

 

The production I want is sold out – what can I do?

Stay tuned to your email during the season – we’ll email when more tickets are released for productions!

 

I can’t make my show! What can I do?

ACT Pass tickets are exchangeable up to 24 hours prior to your performance. Give us a call, or log into your account to exchange!

 

I’m not getting any emails from you – what can I do?

You may have unsubscribed from CTC emails! Send us an email at tickets@childrenstheatre.org, and we can verify if your email is still valid on our mailing list.

 

I require access to Audio Description and/or American Sign Language interpreters!

We offer ASL/AD performances for all productions. Please look for the “ASL” and “AD labels on performances on our calendar!

Scholarships FAQ

How do I register for more than one child? What if I know we want to take a class or camp in every session?

You may only register for one student, one class, and one session at a time. If you would like to register for an additional class or camp, an additional session, or another child in your household, complete your first order including payment, then start a new order.

Please note: ACT Pass holders are eligible for 1 class per student per school year session and 1 full-day week of camp per student during summer. If more funds are available closer to the start of the session, we sometimes allow ACT Pass holders to register for additional classes and camps. If this is the case, we will notify you via email.

 

What if my child’s first choice class or camp is full?

When a class or camp is full, a waitlist will be posted. Please join the class or camp waitlist and register for a second choice class or camp. If space becomes available, we may be able to transfer your scholarship to your first choice class or camp.

 

What if all scholarship funds have been allocated for a session?

When we are out of funds for a given session, scholarships will be turned off for that session. Two weeks before the session begins, all ACT Pass families will receive an email notifying them of available classes and camps available on the ACT Pass for that session.

 

My student is interested in an audition-based program. How does that work?

ACT Pass scholarships are always available for audition-based programming. Sign up for an audition. If cast, call the ticket office to apply your scholarship to program tuition. If you would like to hold a spot in a non-audition class or camp in case you are not cast, please register and pay. If cast, we can transfer any paid tuition toward the cost of the program in which you were cast. Please note: being an ACT Pass holder will not impact casting decisions.

Group Tickets FAQ

How will I know what performances are available?

ACT Pass community group leaders will receive emails for shows throughout the season with available performances to Community Partner groups. Community partners may reserve and coordinate group trips for at least 10 and no more than 50 youth, mentors, and families served by their organization.

You can also email Hannah Ulrich, Ticket Office Manager, at hulrich@childrenstheatre.org, at any time during the season to see what’s available.
