FREE Student Night

Free Student Night is on the second Thursday of All's Well That Ends Well (Thursday, August 2).  Presale tickets are sold at the regular price, but at-the-door student tickets are completely free of charge.  No advanced free student tickets reservations are available, and all student tickets apply to the open section only.  Just bring your student ID (or any other proof of student status) and it will grant you access to the festival.  ID for college students is absolutely required, no exceptions.  Under 18s do not need an ID.  At this time, this event applies only to students, not educators.

 IMPORTANT: If parents are dropping their children off at the door, please know that the main gates close at 8:10 and parents will not be able to get into the parking lot to retrieve children at the end of the evening.  Please consider a safe and appropriate plan for rendezvous, or reach out to our customer service manager at 330-374-7574 to set up an adult escort out of the grounds to the parents’/guardians’ car.

Pay What You Will(iam): Romeo & Juliet

Pay What You Will(iam) Night

Ohio Shakes wants to make Shakespeare accessible and available to our entire community.  In an effort to do this, we offer a donation based “Pay What you Will” evening  (Thursday, July 5) of our Romeo & Juliet

Presale tickets will be sold at the regular price; however, at the door sales the night of the show will be taken on a donation based scale.  Pay whatever you can for your ticket…it could be $1, it could be $100.  The idea is to have people contribute what is comfortable for their budgets and to help us continue to provide more Shakespeare to our entire community.  

All PWYW tickets are part of the Open section unless the donation is more than $33 and there is room in the Preferred section, in which case you would be welcome to a Preferred ticket.

Space available. Call 330-374-7574 or email for questions.
