Williamstown Theatre Festival Announces New Affordable Tickets for 2022 Season
As part of Williamstown Theatre Festival’s commitment to reducing barriers to participation and access, we are pleased to announce a new affordable-tickets pilot program for the 2022 Season: AccessTix.
During the 2022 Season, a limited number of AccessTix will be available for every Festival performance. AccessTix are available for sale online at wtfestival.org, over the phone (413-458-3253), and in-person at the Festival Box Office. While there are no restrictions on who can purchase AccessTix, the purpose of the program is to provide an entry-level price point for people who cannot otherwise afford to attend the Festival, so please consider this when making your ticket selection. For this same reason, previously purchased tickets may not be exchanged for AccessTix. AccessTix quantities are limited and availability may vary by production and performance. There is a limit of four AccessTix per performance per customer.
The AccessTix initiative is part of the Festival’s comprehensive ticket accessibility program, which includes $20 tickets for Massachusetts EBT and ConnectorCare Card to Culture members, as well as $30 Adult and $20 Youth Student “Rush” tickets that can be purchased at the Box Office two hours prior to each performance (subject to availability). AccessTix start at $30 with a $5 processing fee.
The AccessTix pilot program is sponsored by an anonymous Festival donor.
“The Williamstown Theatre Festival staff has been thinking about all the ways we can reduce barriers to entry and participation for both our local community and a broader audience. Over the years, we’ve taken measures to be inclusive, but the AccessTix pilot program is our most ambitious program to date. As theaters across the country are building back, there is no better time to endeavor a more inclusive embrace.”
-Jenny Gersten, Interim Artistic Director
