“I like this place and could willingly waste my time in it.” - WS

Over the years, the Ithaca Shakespeare Company has tried very hard to keep the cost of its tickets down, to preserve the family-friendly approach to Shakespeare's works and keep our productions accessible to all. But ticket sales, as a reliable revenue stream, leave much to be desired.

Our summer 2017 performances of Richard III and Much Ado About Nothing were severely disrupted by weather events, resulting in much lower ticket sales than anticipated and leaving us with a substantial shortfall heading into 2018.

Bowing to economic pressure, this summer we will be forced to raise our ticket prices to $20 for general admission — still a remarkable bargain in this day and age. However, you can take action today to secure tickets at last year’s prices:

Become a member of the Company now.

This will secure you the right to buy tickets at $5 off the new prices, and it will give us the resources to begin planning our new season with confidence.

We urge our friends to act now.

Our goal from this activity is to raise $10,000 as we head into our 2018 summer season. That means we need to hear from approximately 350 individuals out of the thousands who have attended our performances across the past 15 years.
