In our commitment to making arts and culture accessible to all, the Academy Center of the Arts Community Ticket Access Program expands discounted ticket access to those in our underserved communities for whom the cost of a full-price ticket is a barrier. 

By providing discounted blocks of tickets for Academy-presented performances and events to community organizations in our community, we will build on our commitment to sharing arts and cultural experiences and strengthen the bond of our community.


To apply for the program, community organizations must be affiliated with the following:

  • Non-profit and community-based organizations
  • Groups of children from non-profits, churches, schools (Adult supervisors included and required)
  • Public servants and community/civic groups
  • Residential, assisted/senior living facilities, group homes
