Community Tickets Grant Program
As part of our commitment to make theatre available to all children and adults, Virginia Rep will launch a citywide grant program to expand free and discounted ticket access to those in the community for whom the price of a ticket is a barrier. This program will build on and replace our Tickets for Kids program and expand our long-standing policy of offering 10% of our tickets free of charge.
Virginia Rep invites nonprofit community groups to apply for blocks of tickets for groups that they serve. These tickets are for specific performances only. We will keep a waiting list of applicants who would like to be considered for tickets but cannot attend on the designated dates.
This program is not intended for ticket requests for fundraising events. For those requests please visit Tickets for Nonprofit Events.
Who Can Apply
Nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organizations that serve individuals in the Richmond Metro area who do not have the resources to otherwise attend a show. Each organization can apply for up to 3 performances. Ticket request can be made for up to 50 tickets.
How to Apply
Online applications are due 4 weeks before opening of the show you would like to attend. The application is very simple and based on the organization’s mission, the individuals served, and ability to fully utilize donated tickets. You will be notified about the status of your application 3 weeks prior to the performance date with details on how and when to pick up the tickets.
Rules and Restrictions
- Virginia Rep will track ticket usage and groups must use at least 80% of the donated tickets in order to participate in future performances.
- Anyone regardless of age must have a ticket.
- Tickets cannot be resold or used as auction items at fundraising events. Reselling tickets will be grounds for disqualification. For ticket donations for fundraising events please visit Tickets for Nonprofit Events.
- Tickets are for the designated performance only and cannot be exchanged.
- A representative from the organization must pick up the tickets at least 1 day prior to the performance.
