2019-2020 Theatre Philadelphia's Industry Benefits Program

2020-2021 Industry Program Postponed Until Further Notice

Theatre Philadelphia's Industry Benefits program was designed to expand industry discounts for those who work in theatre in the Philadelphia region. Through this program, Theatre Philadelphia seeks to:

  • Foster an equitable and inclusive theatre-going experience for local theatre practitioners
  • Ease the purchasing process for theatre practitioners who are attend productions in the region, and in turn simplify procedures for theatre box offices
  • Establish an easy-to-use benefits card, with perks including access to information about industry discounts at participating theatre organizations, a comprehensive monthly newsletter of shows and events, as well as special promotional offers throughout the year. 

Enrollment into the program is NOW available at a prorated $15 fee (from $25), valid through June 30, 2020. Enrollment fees support Theatre Philadelphia's mission to bring together Philadelphia's diverse and growing theatre community. 


What are the Cardholder Benefits?

  • A personalized Theatre Philadelphia Industry Card will be honored as "proof of industry" in order to access discounts at participating organizations
  • Monthly newsletter with information about industry offerings including discount, events, and other opportunities, and other priority considerations
  • Monthly cardholder-only benefits through Theatre Philadelphia which would include discounted Theatre Philadelphia events or advertising opportunities
  • Plus One Perks - The ability to purchase a guest ticket at the industry rate at select participating organizations

Who Can Enroll?

Individuals who work in the theatre industry within a 35-mile radius of Philadelphia City Hall are eligible to apply. Individuals will submit an online application to Theatre Philadelphia along with verification of eligibility. Accepted materials include but are not limited to: business card, headshot/resume, paystub, link to website, company email address, or digital/printed marketing materials. Theatre Philadelphia reserves the right to extend Industry Benefits to Barrymore Award Nominators and Judges, and other key volunteers in recognition of their appreciation and service. Theatre Philadelphia reserves the right to determine eligibility based on information provided.

How will the Benefits be administered?

Once an individual enrolls in the Industry Benefits Program and their eligibility is verified, Theatre Philadelphia will mail a personalized, easy-to-carry Industry Card. Individuals will be able to use their Industry Card through the Barrymore season (from July 1st to June 30th of the following year). Current Cardholders will pay an annual fee to remain in the program and receive a new card for the year.

Will I still be able to access an industry discount at Participating Organizations without the card?

Organizations who offer industry discounts will continue to allot discounts at their box offices and will accept other forms of "proof" at their own discretion. However, our program offers an easy-to-use system for finding industry discounts and provides added benefits like the +1 industry ticket perk.
