Free Tickets for Playgoers 25 and Under

If you’re 25 and under, you’re invited to attend the first preview performances for free! We want you to be a part of the art, conversation, and change that starts on our stages, and to help us ensure the future of live theatre. To remove one of the biggest barriers that keeps young Angelenos from experiencing live theatre, Center Theatre Group is offering free tickets to the first performance of all productions at the Mark Taper Forum and Kirk Douglas Theatre as well as select Ahmanson Theatre shows.

FreePlay tickets will become available by phone, online, and at the Center Theatre Group Box Office approximately two weeks before the performance, up until 30 minutes before showtime, pending availability.

If you like to be notified about FreePlay tickets, please Sign up here.
