ArtsEmerson now offers free rush tickets to all Emerson students, faculty, and staff, for every performance in the 2015-16 season.
ArtsEmerson has announced special ticket offers—including FREE rush tickets to all performances—for all Emerson students, faculty, and staff for the 2015-16 season. The performances will showcase diverse cultures, multiple languages, and unexpected musical forms; and celebrate that being different isn’t just OK—it might be the most interesting thing ever!
Special ticket offers
Emerson students, faculty, and staff receive one free rush ticket to all ArtsEmerson performances, films, and concerts, and can purchase up to two $10 theater tickets per production in advance with their Emerson ID.
“We are making these free and discounted tickets available to Emerson students, faculty, and staff because we want as many Emersonians as possible to be able to experience our 2015-16 season,” said ArtsEmerson Leadership Team Polly Carl, David Dower, and David Howse in a joint announcement. “Our work in its entirety is focused on helping us understand our world, our place in it, and how we each can contribute to its transformation. We hope our Emerson colleagues and students will join us for what we know will be an exciting year of art and conversation.”
World On Stage performances on stage at the Paramount Center and Cutler Majestic Theatre include productions from South Africa, Russia, Chile, and Roxbury. The season kicks off with a geeky, high-tech musical adventure, Ernest Shackleton Loves Me (September 20–October 4) at the Paramount Mainstage. The opening day matinee is followed by a block party hosted by ArtsEmerson.
World On Screen film screenings at the Bright Family Screening Room at the Paramount Center include screenings in partnership with the Boston International Film Festival, the Boston Asian American Film Festival, and the Boston LGBT Film Festival. ArtsEmerson also presents Live On Screen—a series of some of the best theater captured on film from the National Theatre in London, The Royal Shakespeare Company, and Shakespeare’s Globe.
Black Box Sounds brings local Boston bands to the Jackie Liebergott Black Box Theatre at the Paramount Center. This new series brings the best area bands and performers back to the heart of the city. Early concerts in the series have presented diverse, powerful musical artists including Marissa Nadler, Tigerman WOAH, and Faces on Film.
*Free rush tickets can be claimed two hours prior to the start of any event. To get your free ticket or purchase tickets in advance, bring your Emerson ID to the appropriate box office. Offers valid for current Emerson students, faculty, and staff. Subject to availability, and for some shows, restrictions may apply. Tickets must be used by the Emerson community member reserving them.
About ArtsEmerson’s Programming
ArtsEmerson is the professional presenting and producing organization of the Office of the Arts at Emerson College. Through international programming and local community partnerships, it serves the City of Boston; the Emerson community (students, faculty, and staff); and the global field of performance practice. Founded in 2010, the same year that the US Census confirmed Boston as a majority-minority city, the organization is building a cultural institution that embraces and reflects the changing demographics of our city. ArtsEmerson operates from the core belief that the arts are for everyone.
Using ArtsEmerson and HowlRound as a learning laboratory, Emerson students can gain skills and insights by participating in a professional setting alongside international artist and nationally recognized arts administrators. These opportunities include student employment, curricular connections tailored to specific classes, behind-the-scenes events, and a recently added Creative Producing course offered in the Fall and Spring semesters.
ArtsEmerson conducts a series of initiatives aimed at the belief that the arts belong to everyone. These include the Ambassadors Project, the Play Reading Book Club, the Audience Residencies, Welcome to Boston Cast Parties, and a Public Dialogue Series.
