How to Get Free or Discounted GTA Tickets

Did you know faculty, staff and students can get free tickets to select Gainesville Theatre Alliance weekday performances and $5 tickets to all others? If you’ve ever wondered how to order tickets to a GTA production as a faculty or staff member, here’s what you need to know.

These discounted rates to MainStage shows for faculty and staff open two weeks before the show. The best way to ensure you receive your Brenau faculty/staff discounts is to call the GTA box office at 678-717-3624 when that two-week window opens. This school year, that means you can get your discounted rates to The Wizard of Oz beginning Monday, Oct. 22, Noises off and Men on Boats beginning Jan. 28, and Cabaret beginning March 25 – and since most GTA performances sell out, you should call on those dates, before tickets are gone.

When the two-week window opens, free campus tickets are available for Preview Performances (the day before opening night, usually a Monday), the Wednesday and Thursday performances of the first week of a production, and the Tuesday and Wednesday performances of the second week.  For The Wizard of Oz, free dates are Nov. 5, 7, 8, 13 and 14.

To guarantee seats, especially for high demand weekend performances, faculty and staff can create half-price, custom Season Packages of any two or more shows at any time – totaling about $100 for two tickets to every show.
