The Family Arts Access Pass helps make the arts center’s theater and dance programming more affordable to those that would not usually be able to attend with their families. There is no charge to be part of the program. If you have at least one dependent child in your household and your family is eligible for the Ohio Direction Card and/or Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), you can use the Family Arts Access Pass. If you aren’t eligible for those programs but you still have a financial situation that keeps you from coming to arts center shows with your family, you might still qualify for the program.
How does it work?
•With the Access Pass, tickets are $6 each.
•There is a limit of 6 Access Pass tickets per household, per show. Any additional tickets are regular price. If more than 6 tickets are purchased, the Access Pass price will be applied first to children’s tickets, then to senior/student tickets, then to adult tickets.
•All Access Pass tickets purchased for a show must be for the same performance.
•Access Pass tickets are for first-weekend performances of selected G.B. Community Theatre and Straw Hat Theatre shows, for Youth Theater Production shows, and for the Spring Dance Concert. To find out about discount ticket nights for The Nutcracker, stop in or call (440) 964-3396.
•The Family Arts Access price can be applied to advance sale tickets, which must be paid for in full when they are purchased, or to tickets purchased at the door, if they are available. Tickets can be paid for by phone with a credit card, or in person by credit card, cash, or check.
