The Fine Print
How much do student tickets cost?

Student tickets are $10 for all performances unless otherwise noted.

Last Call

Student ticket sales end at 10am the same day of a weekday performance, and Friday at 10am for a weekend performance. You must call to order your tickets by this time at the latest.

We need to see ID.

If you look older than 12, you must show your student ID when picking up tickets. We strictly adhere to the One ID, Two Tickets policy. If you/your young child does not have an ID but is a student, contact us at (202) 785-WPAS.

What’s a student? What counts as a student ID?

Anyone who is pursuing a degree at a college or university (grad or undergrad), or attending a K-12 school, GED program, or home-school counts as a student. Unfortunately, we can’t offer student tickets to adults who take music lessons. If your school does not issue a picture ID, a document from the school with the student’s name on it may be used to establish student status. Home-schooled students will need to call the WPAS Box Office to make arrangements.

Tickets subject to availability

WPAS has a limited number of student tickets for each performance, and they may sell out without notice. Order your tickets early to make sure you get a seat!

Seating locations TBD

We are unable to determine the seating of student ticket buyers at the time of purchase. You will find out your seating location when you pick up your tickets at the WPAS table.
