Subscribers FAQ

- Have I already subscribed for The Ghostlight Season?

Not yet! Live theatre stopped in March, before we started selling subscriptions for the 2020-2021 season.

- Do I need to buy multiple subscriptions for each member of my household?

As everything is virtual, only one season pass is needed per household. 

- How can I purchase a subscription?

Please find our "How to Subscribe" section just above this FAQ on our subscription page.

- Do I need to have a subscription to see Austin Playhouse's virtual events?

Absolutely not! We will sell single tickets for our productions, play readings, and most special events. 

-I donated my 20th season ticket balance.

Thank you! We would love for you to join us for the Ghostlight Season. You will need to purchase a season pass. Please remember, you only need one pass per household. 

-I have a credit from last season's subscription. Can I apply that to this season?

Yes. Your 20th Season credit will cover your Ghostlight Season subscription. You're also welcome to save the credit til we resume live productions.  If you have a credit from the 20th season and would like to use it toward the Ghostlight Season, please email the box office at boxoffice@austinplayhouse.com.

- I've subscribed, how do I access online events?

Links will be emailed to you 24 hours in advance of the performance. We are working to use streaming platforms that provide the maximum ease of access. These may evolve throughout the season as we discover the best way to deliver our virtual content. You will need to make reservations for plays with multi-night runs. Links to play readings and other one-night-only events  will be emailed automatically.

Plus all readings! Readings typically run for only one-night, so are bonuses throughout the season.

A Ghostlight Season pass that includes access to all virtual productions and play readings is $65 per household.

Yes, for multi-night events you need to email or call the box office and let us know what night you intend to watch the performance.
