Select Performing Arts Events Offering $5 Tickets For Penn State Students

Thanks to a grant from the University Park Student Fee Board, Penn State’s Center for the Performing Arts is offering students $5 tickets for select performances at Eisenhower Auditorium this spring.

Unfortunately, the touring Broadway musical “Hairspray” will not be included in this offer. However, three other opportunities are available at a reduced cost to students.

Tickets will be $5 per student for the following events at Eisenhower Auditorium:

  • Mwenso and the Shakes, “Hope-Resist-Heal: A Celebration of Black Joy,” at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 23
  • “Charles Mingus Centennial Celebration,” featuring Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 31
  • Small Island Big Song, at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 7

Students can reserve their tickets through the Center for the Performing Arts’ website or by phone at (814) 863-0255. Students can also purchase tickets in person at the Eisenhower Auditorium from noon to 4 p.m. on weekdays.

You must provide a valid Penn State ID to purchase tickets and receive the student discount price. Each student may only buy one discounted ticket per ID. If you want to sit with friends, make sure to buy tickets together at the same time.
