West Philly (is very) Welcome

Posted October 26, 2021

Founded over a decade ago in 2010, our West Philly Rush program has reached so many of our neighbors, offering steeply discounted tickets to enjoy amazing live performance experiences. We’ve truly loved making these connections, especially seeing some of the same beautiful faces returning time and again.

Originally a day-of rush with limited ticket availability, the program has evolved over the years but this summer, we were excited to reimagine this outreach and our approach. We wanted to create broader and easier access, ensuring everyone is able to attend and feels welcome in our theatres. So, West Philly Rush was renamed and restructured into our new West Philly Welcome program.

No longer a day-of rush, West Philly residents can now get $15 tickets the week before the performances. Come in-person, go online or give us a call – low-cost tickets are available however you choose to purchase by simply mentioning your West Philly zip code or using it as a promo code on our website. We’re also waiving handling fees for West Philly Welcome tickets, making them even more affordable. To be eligible, you simply need to reside in one of the following zip codes: 19104, 19131, 19139, 19142, 19143, 19145, 19151 or 19153.

So, neighbors, we hope to see you soon and often!
