A limited allotment
of half-price Special Patron Tickets (SPT) are offered for sale
at the box office (only) for most shows, subject to availability
and certain restrictions, as a courtesy to patrons in the categories
listed below. The tickets are available only
for certain performances, generally on Tuesday or Wednesday
evenings or Sunday matinees. The allotment of SPTs is limited and they
are sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
This deep discount is made possible through contributions made
by our supporters, by the show producers
and the trustees of the National Theatre.
SPT purchases are made with
the express understanding that all tickets will be used only by
eligible patrons, and admission may be denied if a ticket is presented
for the admission of an unqualified patron.
Be aware that all special patrons share
the same limited allotment of tickets, which often sell out. For
information about the availability of SPTs,
call (202) 628-6161 on weekdays between 10 am and 5 pm.
