PlayCo is committed to maintaining affordable access to all of its artistic programming as a core component of its mission, to create a more expansive and inclusive vision of the American theatre. We’ve recently revised our ticketing structure to align even more closely with our values and ensure that price is not a barrier for the diverse communities we serve to participate in our work. We’ve lowered general admission, expanded Theatre for Everyone, and added a new tier for those who wish to help us maintain affordable access.

Over the next few productions, we will continue to gather feedback and may revise our ticketing structure to best meet the needs of our audience, community partners, and the organization.

Our new ticketing structure for spring 2022 is as follows:

GENERAL ADMISSION – $28 – General Admission tickets are calibrated to be at an accessible rate for most theatergoers, and includes a $3 processing fee which helps underwrite the TFE tickets. We encourage attendees who are consistently able to meet their day-to-day needs to pay the General Admission price in order to allow those who cannot equitable access to TFE tickets. Previously, the price of general admission was $35, not including the processing fee.

PAY-IT-FORWARD – $65 – Pay-It-Forward tickets are for audience members who are consistently able to meet all of their day-to-day needs and wish to empower PlayCo to keep our ticket prices accessible across the board. All PlayCo tickets are subsidized to some extent, and supporting PlayCo through purchasing tickets at this rate helps us continue to prioritize equity and inclusion in our programming, keeping ticketing costs modest for all. The cost of this ticket includes a processing fee which helps underwrite the TFE tickets.

2 FOR $40 – Our special preview pricing encourages audience members to invite a friend to attend a PlayCo show during any pre-opening night performance for $20/ticket! Use code BRINGAFRIEND at purchase.

THEATRE FOR EVERYONE – $10 – TFE tickets serve to extend a heartfelt welcome to audience members for whom access to the theatre has not historically been guaranteed, whether due to physical/financial barriers or cultural exclusion. These audience members may include (but are not limited to) those who have been historically marginalized and excluded from the theater, first-time theatergoers, students, teachers, artists, and service workers.

Previously, TFE tickets were only sold for a limited period of time. Now, a block of TFE tickets has been reserved for each performance throughout the run of the show with no time limit for purchase (subject to availability).


Until further notice, all ticket holders will be required to show proof of a complete COVID-19 vaccination AND proof of a booster dose (for those eligible in accordance with CDC guidelines) at the door.
Ticket buyers with a medical or religious exemption must send official documentation of the exemption to companymanager@playco.orgno later than 3 days prior to the performance date. Our Company & House Manager will reply to confirm if your exemption has been approved or if additional documentation or information is required. Once approved, when you arrive at the theatre you must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test administered by a certified medical professional. PCR tests must be administered within 72 hours of the performance start time – OR – a rapid antigen test must be administered within 6 hours of the performance start time. Store bought, at home rapid test results are not accepted.
All ticket holders must present a photo ID for verification. No refunds or exchanges will be granted to unvaccinated, unboosted (who are eligible), or nonexempt ticket buyers. 
All patrons will also be required to wear N95, KF94 or KN95 masks. Masks must be worn at all times in the facility regardless of vaccination or exemption status.
We ask all audience members to please stay home if they have a sore throat, are feeling sick in any other way, or have been recently exposed to COVID-19, and to please contact the box office for an exchange.
All of our performers, technicians, and staff members are required to be fully vaccinated and masked unless they are onstage performing. Additionally, they are participating in a weekly testing regimen to keep everyone as safe as possible.
These protocols and policies will be regularly reviewed and adjusted as appropriate.
