Theatre Washington has announced the return of Theatre Week with a discounted tickets campaign designed to attract new patrons.
The three-week-long promotion, running September 21 to October 8, will launch the 2023-24 theatre season in the Washington, DC region.
Throughout Theatre Week, over 25 area productions will offer discounted tickets at $20, $40, and $60 through ticketing partner TodayTix.
Theatre Week also features a Kickoff Fest at Arena Stage, which will feature performances, workshops, and free samples of locally made food. Other highlights include DC theatre walking and cycling tours and season previews at the Smithsonian’s Ripley Center.
Amy Austin, Theatre Washington president and CEO, said: “In the nation’s capital, where history and creativity converge, our professional theatre scene stands as a dynamic testament to the power of live theatre. We are thrilled to announce that Theatre Week is back to celebrate the launch of the 2023-2024 theatre season.
“We are excited to raise the curtain and invite people across the DC Metro area and beyond to see a show (or two) and participate in the many immersive experiences tailored to engage new and seasoned theatre goers alike.”
DC Mayor will promote Theatre Week at a press conference held early next week.
Theatre Week 2023 is funded in part by the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
Theatre Washington’s core programmes include the Helen Hayes Awards, Theatre Week, Theatre Summit, Theatre Work, and the Taking Care Fund.
