The Marvelous Party: PRIDE
An Annual Party Performance to Benefit Bridge Rep
ABOUT OUR TICKET PRICES.
The Bridge Rep Playmakers have taken a good look at what it means to buy and sell tickets to live theater:
On the one hand, we realize that you as our patron are purchasing a ticket in order to experience a particular show. That said, we invite you to view the act of ticket buying a bit more globally.
In other words, a ticket purchase is not merely a transaction where money is exchanged for a product. When you buy a ticket, at whatever price, you are in fact supporting the creation of art, and the existence of art in your community. A ticket purchase is your way of saying, "Yes, I value having a creative culture in my home town!"
At the same time, cost should not be a barrier to anyone's access to the arts, which means tickets can't always be bought and sold at a price point that would allow us to recoup the expenses associated with producing live theatre.
With these perspectives in mind, we've decided to offer a few ticket price options, and trust you to select whichever is the best fit for your situation, based on the honor system and the information below:
1) Subsidized Tickets. The arts should be accessible to everyone, which is why we have a subsidized price point for students, seniors, other artists, or anyone else who is served by this offering.
2) Standard Full Price Tickets. We believe people are honest and honorable, and that those who can pay the industry standard price of admission will do so as a gesture of support of the arts and culture in our city.
3) True Cost Tickets. This higher price point reflects the true cost of the production. In order to recoup the expenses associated with the show, we'd have to sell every seat at this level.
4) True Cost PLUS Tickets. Our highest price point reflects the amount we would have to charge to both cover the expenses associated with the production and pay all personnel a minimum wage of $20 / hour.
5) Preview Tickets. To illuminate the process of making theatre, we offer lower ticket prices for "previews", as these special performances are an intermediary step between the work that happens in the rehearsal hall, and the finalized performance audiences will see on and after the official opening night. These prices are even further reduced from the tiered prices, above.
6) ALL IN Membership. This monthly pledge / payment option serves as Bridge Rep's spin on traditional subscriptions. You can get access to all of our programming starting at just $5 / month. Click here to check it out!
