Become an ADMIT ONE Partner

Do you belong to or know of a Chicago community group that has limited resources and wants to experience world-class performances at one of the most legendary theatres in Chicago? Take a look at the criteria for our ADMIT ONE program below. If your group is eligible, we encourage you to submit an application to become an Auditorium Theatre ADMIT ONE Partner!

Partner groups get FREE tickets to one of the incredible performances in the Auditorium Theatre’s season, as well as the option of transportation and an artist-led workshop to spark your community’s connection to the performing arts.

Is your group eligible?

  • Are you based in a Chicago neighborhood community? (Unfortunately, K-12 classrooms and college groups are not eligible at this time.)
  • Can you organize a group of 20 or more people (ages 5+) to attend a performance at the Auditorium Theatre?
  • Does your group have limited access to the arts or face barriers to attending live performances?

If you’ve answered “Yes” to all of the above, apply here!

Organizations and community groups that have limited resources and support the broader Chicago community are encouraged to apply. Some examples of groups might include (but are not limited to) arts-focused programs, arts-focused social services initiatives, senior groups, church groups, after-school programs, block clubs, homeless shelters, and veterans’ groups.

All applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis as they are received. Groups will be notified at least three weeks prior to the performance date.

If your group is not eligible for ADMIT ONE but you are still interested in attending a show at the Auditorium Theatre, please visit our Group Sales page.

K-12 classrooms can also check out our Student Matinee Series!

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.
