Pay-What-You-Want Performances

Since 1989, Fulton Theatre’s Pay-What-You-Want Program has enabled audience members who otherwise would not be able to afford a ticket the opportunity to attend at whatever price they feel comfortable paying.

In addition to the regular Pay-What-You-Want performance dates listed below, Pay-What-You-Want tickets are available to those using an accessibility service at the performances for which the services are provided. Services include ASL interpretation, audio description, open captioning and Spanish interpretation.

Fulton Theatre annually supports non-profit organizations headquartered in Central Pennsylvania through its Ticket Donation Program. Learn more
