One of the more unique theatre experiences this season is the ability for audience members to be part of the story of Ti Moune and join the world of Once on This Island.
As the production begins its national tour next month, a certain amount of tickets are being offered by venues to allow patrons to sit on stage. This is a way to replicate the unique staging while the production was running at Broadway’s Circle In The Square Theatre.
For those who are interested in participating, here are some important things to know:
- Tickets generally run for $25 per person.
- Stage seats will be available for each performance.
- You must be at least 10 years old.
- There is no late seating. As a member of the onstage audience, you must arrive to the theater early enough to be seated before the performance begins. If you are not seated before the performance begins, you will not be seated onstage and risk not being admitted to the performance.
- In addition, you must be able to stay on stage for the duration of the show (90 minutes, no intermission).
- Your personal belongings will be stored. Since some of the show’s action takes place throughout the seating area, a coat/bag check will be provided for the secure storage of your personal items.
- For artistic reasons, you may not receive the show program until the end of the performance.
- Venues are asking that you refrain from wearing clothing or items that may draw focus away from the performance. This includes, but is not limited, to clothing that may contain vulgar, offensive or politically charged saying or images, clothing that may be deemed inappropriate for younger audience members, and watches, shoes or other items that may light up or glow. Out of consideration to the actors, also refrain from wearing strong perfume or cologne.
- Stage seats are bleacher-style bench seating without backs.
- Your view will be different. Stage seats offer a side/rear view of some of the performance. Some aspects of the action may be obstructed.
- Food and beverages, including bottled water, are not permitted on the stage or at your seat.
- Due to limited space, guests using wheelchairs may be seated in front of their party instead of alongside them.
- For more information, call or visit the website of the venue at which you plan on seeing the show and find the page associated with the show. Below is the current tour route for the production:
