Open Seat Program

We are a welcoming hub, committed to making the arts accessible, nurturing, and thrilling to all, but we know that not everyone in our community can afford to see our productions or attend our classes.

We are proud of our Open Seat at the Center program, which provides two free tickets for EVERY performance of EVERY Mainstage and Black Box production and one free seat for EVERY class that we offer.
This benefit is available to anyone in our community who can’t otherwise afford it.
First come, first served. Just ask "Is there an open seat available?"

Note: For classes costing more than $300, the benefit may be split among multiple recipients at the discretion of the Center.

For show and event tix, contact Ira in the Box Office at 508.428.0669, ext 120, or at Please reserve by 24 hours prior to the performance.
For classes, contact Christine Ernst in the Education Office at 508.428.0669, ext 4, or at Please reserve at least one week prior to the class start.

Limit one pair of tix per 6 months per person, or one class per year per family. Open Seats are not refundable or transferable.

Open Seat at the Center benefits Cape Cod residents and is funded by the generosity of our wonderful donors, who help us all do it at Cotuit.
