Ways to Save

Pay-What-You-Will Performance

We designate selected performances throughout the season as play-what-you-will nights. Tickets are sold on the day of the show starting at 1:00 p.m. online and on a cash only,  first come, first served basis in person. Check the ticket calendar of the production you plan to see or email the box office for the next pay-what-you-will performance.

Groundling Membership

Groundling members can purchase available day-of-show tickets (excluding Opening Night) for only $10 when they show their Groundling membership button. Groundlings tickets become available for sale at 6:30 p.m. (1:00 p.m. for matinees), are limited to two tickets per member per show. Email or stop by the box office to become a Groundling member.

Groundlings Button

What’s a Groundling?
At Shakespeare’s theatre, Groundlings were the audience members who paid a penny to stand in the open air yard to see the show. At Seattle Shakespeare Company, Groundlings pay a bit more than a penny to see the show, but they love theatre just as much. We won’t make you stand, but Groundlings have to take whatever seat is available when they come to see the show.

Low-Priced Subscriptions

Purchasing season subscription tickets already saves you money off the cost of regular-priced single tickets, but if you come to a preview performance you can save even more. This subscription package with reserved seating is a great option for those on a tight budget.
