Open Seat Program

We are a welcoming hub, committed to making the arts accessible, nurturing, and thrilling to all...

...and 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 tuition for EVERY class that we offer.

That’s right — 2 FREE TIX for EVERY performance and 1 FREE TUITION for EVERY class we offer, available to anyone who can’t otherwise afford it. Just ask.

First come, first served. Just ask "Is there an open seat available?" Call us or email. We have an Open Seat for you.

Note: For adult classes costing more than $400, the benefit may be split among multiple recipients at the discretion of the Center.

For show and event tix, contact Jason 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 508.454.6199, or at Please reserve at least one week prior to the class start.

Limit one pair of tix per 6 months or one class per year per person.

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.
