Arena Theater is a black box theater - it 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.

Season Tickets

The best way to see an entire Arena Theater season is with season tickets.  A season ticket gives you one ticket to each play on the night of your choosing.  These are packaged together and you receive a 10% discount on each ticket. It also allows you to get your tickets to your preferred performance before they sell out.
