Azuka Theatre Launches Pay-What-You-Decide Ticket Model For 2016-2017 Theater Season

Pay-what-you-decide is designed to bring in new audiences and remove financial barriers to theater. The program is supported by a $55,000 grant from The Barra Foundation. Shows in the new season will include the world premieres of Sh_theads by Douglas Williams and The Arsonists by Jacqueline Goldfinger, as well as the Philadelphia premiere of How We Got On by Idris Goodwin. All performances will take place in Azuka’s resident theater complex at The Drake (302 S. Hicks Street). For more information, visit www.azukatheatre.org or by phone at (215) 563-1100.
