2021 Student Membership Handbook

Booking seats

We'll send you an email when it's time to book your tickets — that’s your cue to log in and reserve your seat for that show! Every notification includes essays and information about the show. You can book online by visiting our ticketing site powered by Ticket Central or by calling Ticket Central. Be sure to act early to guarantee prime seats. 

Student Members can purchase one $15 ticket per production to any or all shows in the season. At your request, we’ll hold them at will call for easy pre-show pickup, or you can print them at home. Proof of identity is required for pickup and use of each Student Member ticket. Student Member tickets are non-transferable. If you are not able to furnish proper identification at the box office or in the theater, you will be asked to pay a higher ticket price.

Students of Playwrights Horizons Theater School may use Flex Pass tickets to book into any show in the season. Limit two (2) tickets per show. No refills available. No guest tickets available. If you'd like to bring friends, have them sign up for our Student Membership for $15 tickets — it's free!


Your Student Membership is valid for all shows in the season of registration and will expire at the conclusion of the season. If you graduate after you've registered for your Student Membership, you can continue to use your benefits until the end of the season.


We know seeing our plays is a priority for you, but sometimes life gets in the way. Student Members can exchange their tickets up to 24 hours before the scheduled performance time for a nominal fee.

Guest Tickets

You can purchase one guest ticket per production for $35 (no age restrictions), a substantial savings compared to the general public’s price. 


It’s important that absolutely anyone can experience our productions. That’s why our theaters are wheelchair-accessible, and we offer audio description and assisted listening devices at all performances. We also offer one ASL-interpreted performance per Mainstage performance and GalaPro, a free captioning app, at every performance after a production’s opening night. If you have any specific seating requests or accessibility concerns, please call us and we’ll take care of you.

Up-to-Date Information

We want to be sure you hear about everything happening at Playwrights Horizons, no matter where life may take you. Please make sure that we have your most up-to-date contact information on file throughout the season. If anything is wrong with how your details are listed on your payment confirmation, please contact us so that we can change it in a flash.
