Ticket Prices and Community Discount Programs

Puppet Showplace Theater is committed to presenting outstanding professional puppetry to diverse audiences. Ticket revenues fund about 45% of our operations, allowing us to pay artists and staff, maintain our historic building, and pursue creative community partnerships. Generous donations from audience members and supporters subsidize our remaining costs and help keep our ticket prices affordable.

Our current ticket prices and community discount programs are below.
