Arena Theater Ticket Information

Arena Theater is what is known as a black box theater. A black box theater allows for different stage and audience configurations. Because of this, Arena Theater is General Admission. And because of the size of our theater, there is not a bad seat in the house.




For the first time, Arena Theater tickets will be available at the Wheaton College Ticket Office. The Ticket Office is located at the Wheaton College Bookstore. This change will allow tickets to be sold all year long instead of during our typical limited sale window.  Please call the number below to purchase your tickets or find out more.
