What is "Pay As You Can"?

In order to ensure that every child and family can attend a theatre performance, we offer a "Pay As You Can" performance.  Visitors on this day are asked to name their price - from $1 to $8 - when purchasing tickets. 

How does it work?

Tickets MUST be purchased at the Arts Center on the day of the performance from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the Welcome Center or when the Box Office opens at 12 p.m. If you wish to purchase tickets by phone or prior to the performance date, the tickets will be processed at regular price. The minimum price is $1.00 per ticket. The maximum ticket purchase for each person is 6 tickets.  Any additional tickets will be sold at regular price.

Houston, we have a problem…. Lenny’s spaceship has crashed here on Earth and he needs our help to get home!  This ship is extremely advanced since it runs off of a crystal powered by knowledge, which, luckily, our audience has in droves.  Your mission is to help reboot the power crystal to get Lenny back home.  And we are going to need all the brain power we can get to power Lenny’s ship.  You won’t want to miss this out-of-this-world adventure!

"What a fantastic show and talented woman! My 3 year old was laughing and giggling throughout the performance. My 1 year old and I also really enjoyed it. We hope to catch another show!"  - Katherine M. 

"Fun show! My "too cool" 8 yr old went in saying it was for little kids, but by the end he was cracking up right along with his 5 yr and 3 month old brothers. All the grown-ups were laughing as well. We appreciate you stopping at the Artesia public library!"   -Christina C.
