In an effort to make live theatre available to all, the Clarence Brown Theatre has implemented “Pay What You Wish” pricing for the first Wednesday Preview during the upcoming season. The first Pay What You Wish performance will be September 9 for The 39 Steps.
Pay What You Wish tickets will be made available for the first Wednesday Preview of each production throughout the season with the exception of The Santaland Diaries preview which will be Thursday, December 3. Tickets may be purchased from noon to 7:00 p.m. on the day of the performance at the CBT Box Office kiosk in the CBT lobby. Cash in full dollar amounts will be accepted and tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
“The CBT is excited about our latest initiative aimed at providing increased access to live theatre for our entire community. In addition to our Blue Star Military discounts for active-duty personnel and veterans, Season for Youth Student Matinees, student, senior & educator discounts, our Pay What You Wish program eliminates a barrier for some would-be theatre patrons in the Greater Knoxville region and beyond,” said David B. Byrd, CBT Managing Director.
The dates for the Pay What You Wish program are: September 9 for The 39 Steps; September 30 for Of Mice and Men; October 28 for Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play; November 25 for A Christmas Carol; December 3 for The Santaland Diaries; February 10 for Titus Andronicus; February 24 for A Lesson Before Dying; March 30 for The Open Hand; and April 20 for South Pacific.
