Tickets & Subscriptions
At Steep we believe that the stories we tell are relevant to the everyday lives of everyday people, and we want to make our theatre accessible to as many people as possible. Our goal is to add many voices and perspectives to the conversations that begin on stage and continue in the lobby and beyond. We also strive to uphold the highest artistic and production standards and to compensate our artists as well as possible.
To meet these goals we have a three-tiered ticketing system with prices ranging from $10-$35. Higher ticket prices allow us to continue to produce high quality theatre, and lower ticket prices make our work accessible to students, artists and others who would not otherwise be able to afford to join us. Our ticketing policy caters both to those on a tight budget and those looking to further support our mission and become more involved in Steep.

Steep Pass holders get four tickets for one low price (a 40% savings), a reserved seat at each of the next four plays (that's a year's worth of theatre), discounted tickets for friends and family, and a standing invitation to Steep’s famous post-show parties.
Plus, the Steep Pass is super flexible, and changing your dates is always free and easy.

For $38 you can linger over your dinner a little longer knowing that you and your friends will be seated together in some of the best seats in the house, handpicked by our directors. In addition to guaranteeing you great seats, your purchase goes the extra mile towards funding our artistic programming and our efforts to offer accessible tickets to those who can use them.
Access Tickets $10
Steep is committed to making theater accessible to everyone – students, artists, or anyone on a tight budget. In that spirit, Steep offers 10% of our tickets for each production at the affordable price of just $10.
Access tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. These general admission tickets are released two weeks before the opening of each production. Be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to be the first to know when they go on sale.
Access tickets are made possible by the generosity of scores of individual donors.
Please note, in an effort to save paper, Steep does not use physical tickets. When you arrive at the theatre for your performance, simply check in at the box office.
Because of the size and layout of Steep's theatre, late seating is not usually possible. If you arrive after the performance begins, or if you leave the theatre during the performance, seating will be at the discretion of the House Manager.
In the event of a sold-out show, all tickets not claimed at the box office by the listed start time of the performance may be released to the wait list.
