Student Discount Ticket Packages

Student Discount Ticket Packages

Given the urgency of the situation regarding COVID-19, the recommendations from leadership at The University of Texas at Austin, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), it is with great consideration and sadness that we have made the difficult decision to suspend the remainder of our Spring 2020 Season indefinitely. This suspension applies to mainstage season performances, studio productions and all public events at the department for the remainder of the semester. 

Students who purchased a Student Discount Ticket Package seeking a refund may make those requests by sending the following to megan.bommarito@austin.utexas.edu
- (For those who picked up their ticket package) A photo of your unused or partially used student ticket package and your student ID (in the same photo)
- (For those who picked up tickets using their ticket package) A photo of your used student ticket package (if it is still in your posession) and your student ID in the same photo along with the claimed tickets for either Sense and Sensibility or (R)evolution
- (For those who did not pick up their ticket package) Email your name and EID to the above email to request your refund. 

Please note that we are unable to process refunds for any shows that were not suspended as a result of the recent university closure. Any student who fails to provide the required proof of purchase is not guaranteed a refund. 

For those who purchased individual tickets, please email tickets@texasperformingarts.org to inquire about refund options for suspended productions.

How to Use Your Student Ticket Package Discount Card 

After purchasing your discount card online, you will receive an email with instructions detailing pick up times for your student ticket package. Once your ticket package has been collected, present it at either the Texas Performing Arts Box Office or the F. Loren Winship Drama Building Box Office during regularly posted hours to beginning one hour prior to performances (Winship Box Office only) to request your ticket(s). Students are encouraged to collect tickets in advance as your ticket package does not guarantee you a seat. 

Lost cards will not be replaced. Student ticket packages cannot be redeemed for tickets to preview performances, Texas Performing Arts productions or department events outside of the main stage season. For refund requests, please bring your unused ticket package to the Winship Main Office (WIN 1.142) during ticket package collection times.
