FREE NIGHT OF THEATER 2008

Launches in Over 100 Cities Across the Country on October 16!

As the Free Night program rolls out over an ever expanding national stage, we are thrilled to offer this unique opportunity to provide access to thousands of new audience members to experience the joy of theatre for the first time — absolutely free of charge!

“Since the campaign’s pilot year here three years ago, we have seen an extraordinary response from theatres, audiences and the whole community. The demand for live theatre–when it’s made accessible to all–is overwhelming. We’re bringing in new audiences–young people, people of color, people from all walks of life–and they are coming back for more. Free Night of Theater has thrown the doors of our theatres open wide.”

— Brad Erickson, executive director of Theatre Bay Area

Free Night of Theater is Theatre Communications Group’s exciting national audience development program designed to attract new audiences to America’s not-for-profit theatres. Since the pilot program, which debuted in three cities in 2005, Free Night has expanded across the country and will be presented in over 100 cities by more than 600 theatres in 2008.

The 2008 campaign debuts on October 16, 2008 and will once again be produced in Atlanta, Austin, Boise, Cincinnati, Cleveland, the state of Connecticut, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Lexington, Los Angeles, the state of New Jersey, the state of North Carolina, Oregon (in Ashland and Eugene), Philadelphia, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle/Greater Puget Sound, South Carolina/Charleston, states represented by Southeastern Theatre Conference (including Alabama, Louisiana, Florida, Virginia and West Virginia), Utah, Washington D.C. and the state of Wisconsin.

The 2008 program will also be presented in Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas and New York City. Additional cities will be joining the program over the next few months, so be sure to check back often.

Tickets are being offered, in most areas, to performances from October 16th through October 30th and can be reserved beginning on October 1st, but every location is different so be sure to check the Find a Show Page for details on participating theatres and performances in your area.
