Star Seats and Star Seat Packages

We're pleased to offer premiums to Star Seat purchasers, who generously help keep our community ticket prices low and our participants' programming free. Benefits for those who buy an Individual Star Seat ($20) in advance * -- You'll get a reserved seat in a row of your choice; a coupon for a free NWT button, window cling or rubber wrist band, redeemable at our gift shop before the show or at intermission; a coupon for 15% off on any other item at the gift shop (excluding Showgrams); and a coupon for a soft drink at the concession stand. Individual Star Seats may also be purchased at the door without a reservation (if the show is not sold out) and include all the benefits above, except reserved seating. Benefits that come with a Star Seat Package ($100) -- You'll receive a punch card for six seats that you can use all at once or in any combination over the course of one year from date of purchase. A package does not guarantee seats for any particular performance, so you're strongly encouraged to call in advance to make reservations for your desired performance(s). Star Seat Package holders will receive six of each of the premium coupons described above and receive the same reserved-seating privileges for seats reserved in advance.* You may also use your punch card at the door without advance reservations (if the show is not sold out), but you will not have a reserved seat.

* Advance Star Seat and Star Seat Package reservations:
-- For Thursday and Friday performances, reservations must be made by phone or online, and seat location requests made by phone, no later than 4 p.m. on the day of the performance.
-- For Saturday and Sunday performances, reservations must be made by phone or online, and seat location requests made by phone, no later than 4 p.m. on the Friday before the performance. (Same-day online reservations for weekend shows may still be made until 5 p.m. Saturdays and until 1 p.m. Sundays, but reserved seats will not be possible.)

Near West Theatre is housed in St. Patrick's Club Building on the 3rd floor which is not accessible to persons with disabilities (there is no elevator or chair lift).  However, NWT is engaged in a process to build an accessible theatre in the Gordon Square Arts District at West 67th & Detroit.  The conceptual design for the new building is completed, and the capital campaign will be announced in the near future.
