WHAT IS THE NEW PLAYMAKERS FLEXPASS?
We know life can be unpredictable, so the PlayMakers FlexPass gives you the ultimate flexibility to choose your dates and how many people you’d like to bring to each PlayMakers show, while still locking in savings and guaranteeing seats to our most popular shows!
HOW DOES PLAYMAKERS FLEXPASS WORK?
When you purchase a FlexPass bundle of six, eight, or ten, you can use your passes to customize your 23/24 season experience. Each pass is equivalent to one ticket, and you can choose which shows you want to see and who you want to see it with. For example, if you purchase the FlexPass 6, you might come solo to catch the thrills and chills of Misery and then spend Friendsgiving with the gang at Much Ado About Nothing with your remaining 5 passes. It’s your choice!
WHEN CAN I REDEEM PLAYMAKERS FLEXPASS?
- After purchasing your FlexPass, you can start reserving your performances by going to your PlayMakers account: https://tickets.playmakersrep.org/account/upcomingevents
- You redeem passes by selecting your desired performance date, time, and number of seats.
- You can redeem your passes any time before your desired performance date. We recommend doing this 2-4 weeks in advance. For example, you can reserve 2 seats to Clyde’s in the fall, 4 for Murder on the Orient Express in the spring, etc.
WILL THERE BE PRINTED PLAYBILLS?
You asked, we listened! In the 21/22 season, we went digital with our Playbills, as another part of our efforts to go a bit more green. This season, at your request, we will have some printed Playbills for patrons who need or prefer that format. Digital Playbills will still be available before every show opens.
ARE YOU PRODUCING KENAN STAGE SHOWS IN THE 23/24 SEASON?
No. Our PRC2 series featured new works by new voices, and was designed to push the boundaries of what we believe theatre to be. PlayMakers’ commitment to new works remains core to our mission, so much so that we want to make it possible for as wide an audience as possible to experience these new works! Our @PLAY new works development program will continue to commission new works, bring them to our larger, 500-seat Paul Green Theatre, and also host work-in-development events throughout each season.
HOW DO I ACCESS MY DIGITAL TICKETS?
PlayMakers has transitioned to all-digital tickets, for safety reasons and to help us go a little more green. This means your phone is your ticket! Accessing your digital tickets is easy:

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I’M NOT FEELING WELL?
For the safety of all our artists, patrons, and staff, if you feel unwell, please stay home. You may call our Box Office and ask to be reseated for another performance. You may also exchange your ticket for another performance for the same production online if your performance date has not passed.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF YOU HAVE TO CANCEL PERFORMANCES DUE TO COVID-19 CIRCUMSTANCES?
We make every effort to move all of our patrons in a cancelled performance to a new date. If we are unable to find a new performance date for you, or you are unable to make your rescheduled date, you would have the same options as last season:
- You can donate the value of your tickets back to PlayMakers (we are so grateful many of you have) or
- You can receive a refund.
We will notify all patrons of any cancellations as soon as they are announced, so please make sure we have a correct email address for you. We will also post updates on Facebook and Twitter.

Subscribers may exchange their tickets with no additional fee, but additional cost may apply with a change in performance or section.
IS THERE STILL AN OPTION TO WATCH PERFORMANCES ONLINE?

- Streaming access is included in the purchase of your ticket or you may purchase a streaming-only ticket.
- No. Based on patron feedback, we have changed our seating map to increase the availability of our most affordable tickets for every performance, so that patrons can have as much flexibility as possible in selecting their performances. As we take audience safety very seriously, we will not have General Admission performances this season.
HOW WILL I RECEIVE UPDATES ON MY PERFORMANCES AND PLAYMAKERS’ NEW COVID GUIDELINES?
As always, we strive to provide any updates and information that we have to you as quickly as possible. We will email all ticketed patrons about changes to their performance(s).
