Theater tickets can be pricey. Here's how IU students can see shows for less.

Auditorium 011019

For regular theater-goers wanting to see "Something Rotten!" this February when it comes to the IU Auditorium, ticket prices can go over $70. 

But IU students can see the same show for only $17.

IU students can see Broadway talent without going broke thanks to the student discounts offered at the IU Auditorium. 

“We have generous donors who believe it is important to provide affordable prices for students to interact and enjoy the performing arts,” ticket operations manager Jesi Evans said.

Single performance tickets for students on average are anywhere from 15 to 25 percent off face value for students. The IU Auditorium also has a student section located in the balcony with tickets at prices of $25 or under for most shows.

Students have another option to get their hands on discounted tickets by buying Entertainment Flex Tickets. For $89, students can purchase money vouchers worth $100 that can be redeemed for tickets to on-campus performances and events. These vouchers can be used to buy tickets for Little 500 as well as at the IU Auditorium, the Musical Arts Center, IU Cinema and the Department of Theatre, Drama and Contemporary Dance. 

“We at the IU Auditorium want to introduce and educate students about the performing arts because it is something that transcends all cultures and communities,” Evans said. “I was a student here at IU, and I know that one of the things I remember most about my time here is when I took an evening to go out and enjoy something only IU had to offer me.” 

Tickets can be purchased online or at the IU Auditorium box office on weekdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
