Children’s Theatre of Charlotte offers reduced-cost tickets to productions and special events for families who receive public assistance and organizations that work with disadvantaged youth. These tickets are offered at a substantial discount in order to provide access to those who would not otherwise be able to attend due to financial reasons.

Tickets for Families

$2 tickets are available to families with EBT cards. Each family may request up to 6 tickets per production - please note that all tickets must be for immediate family members of the same household. These reduced-cost tickets are released for purchase on a first-come-first-served basis for each production throughout the season.
