Inclement weather

Buy with confidence, regardless of what the weather may bring.

Here's what to expect from us during inclement weather.

Ticket prices

For our 2014-2015 season, we're testing a simplified pricing structure. Instead of offering a regular price and a series of discounts, we've set a single, low price for the general public and students.

  • Regular price: $25
  • Student price: $10

NextLEVEL (replaces subscriptions)

But let's be honest: discounts are nice, especially when you attend several performances. With this in mind, we invite you to join the NextLEVEL. You'll save on tickets and take your experience with The Clarice to new heights. 

In addition to discounts, we'll even give you a free ticket voucher when you join!
