Ticket Information

TEATRX tickets are "Pay-What-You-Will". As a Latinx Theatre company we believe in making theatre accessible. We understand that for some a $25 ticket is beyond their means. We want our audience to pick a ticket price that suits their budget.

TEATRX recommended ticket price for this event is $25. This by no means will cover the cost of the festival but will allow us to make sure everyone is paid for their work. If you are passionate about advancing Latinx theatre arts, enjoyed the festival, and you have the means, please consider purchasing tickets for up to $45.

Seating is general admission (open seating). The theater will open approximately 30 minutes before the performance begins.

We cannot guarantee immediate seating after the performance has begun. Latecomers will only be admitted in a suitable break in the performance.

Wheelchair accessible seating is available to individuals who require wheelchair accessible seating themselves or to someone purchasing on their behalf.

Each ticket is subject to a $2 fee at check out.
