  • As you may imagine, all students participating in the show are FREE. They get to watch the show from the audience during the act they are not in.
  • All volunteers who work the night of the show are also FREE.  However, volunteers’ seats will be in the back with the performers that are waiting for their act.  So, if you would like to have specific seats (for example, front and center seats or next to your family) you must purchase them.
  • During purchase you choose tickets to be printed at home, available on your mobile device or ready for pick up at Will Call on the night of the show.
We need everyone to help out. Please sign up for a shift:
