Live performance provides the unique opportunity to share a moment in time with both the performers on stage and your fellow audience members, creating unique memories that last well beyond the time spent in our theater. Don’t miss these opportunities to engage with Auditorium Theatre’s performances the next time you come to visit!

Become an ADMIT ONE Partner

Do you belong to—or know of a Chicago neighborhood group that wants to experience world-class dance and music at one of the most legendary stages in Chicago? Apply online here to become an Auditorium ADMIT ONE Partner and spark your community’s connection with the performing arts!

Partner groups get FREE tickets to one of the incredible performances in Auditorium Theatre’s 2017-18 Season, which include Shen Wei Dance Arts, Ensemble Español, Ella & Lena, Too Hot to Handel, and more!

To apply, simply answer a few short questions about your group and why you want free or reduced price tickets. As a partner, your group will also receive VIP treatment in the Auditorium lobby before the performance.

Is your group eligible?

  • Is your group based in a Chicago neighborhood community? (Unfortunately, K-12 schools are not eligible at this time, but after-school groups are encouraged to apply!)
  • Can you organize a group of 20 or more people (ages 5+) to attend one of the Auditorium Theatre’s 2017-18 Season performances?

If you’ve answered “Yes” to both of the questions above, then apply here! Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis as they are received throughout the summer. The Auditorium will confirm receipt of your application within three business days. Recipients will be notified at least 3 weeks prior to the performance date!​

The Auditorium ADMIT ONE program is intended to benefit Chicago residents—youth, families, adults, and seniors – who have limited access to attend live performances at the Auditorium Theatre. Preference may be given to groups who have never been to the Auditorium before.

Depending on gifts made to the Auditorium ADMIT ONE Fund, the Auditorium hopes to send Partner groups to other presentations this season. Workshop availability is limited and will be awarded based on interest and demonstration of need, at the discretion of Auditorium Theatre.

Post Show Q & A

Join us immediately following select performances for a 20 minute post-show Q & A session. The Auditorium Theatre Creative Engagement staff guides the conversation as performers and artistic staff from the presenting company answer audience questions about their work.

Information regarding 2017-18 Season Post Show Q & As will be available shortly.

Get Inspired!

Art challenges us to engage, to question, and to dream. The Get Inspired table, present in the Auditorium Theatre lobby for most performances, encourages audience members to share their response to the various works of art that make up our season. Feeling inspired by the music you just heard? Can’t stop dreaming after seeing that beautiful dancing? Stop by before a show or during intermission to add your thoughts and see what fellow audience members are talking about! Then take your inspiration to social media by sharing your contribution on Twitter or Instagram using #AudInspiration.
