Where is the UT Center for Performing Arts Box Office located? (map)
The Box Office is located in the Center for Performing Arts, at the corner of Tower View and Campus Drive West, on UT's main campus. The CPA is on the west side of main campus and can be easily reached by taking the West Entrance into campus off of Secor Road. Parking is available in the lot across from the building.

WHAT YOU GET--Season Tickets
Season Tickets include one ticket to each opening night performance of our three plays. A Season Ticket is 15% off the price of 4 regular tickets purchased separately. If you buy now through SEPTEMBER 7, 2012, you save an additional 15% off for a total of 30% off the price of 4 tickets purchased separately. Season Tickets automatically give you a seat at the opening night performance of each of the plays. However, if you want to attend a different performance night, your ticket can be exchanged, but you must contact the Box Office two business days in advance or the exchange will not be honored. This gives us time to resell the opening night ticket. Take me to the online Box Office.
Opening Night Performance Dates:
Orpheus - Oct. 12, 2012
Metamorphoses - Nov. 16, 2012
Three Sisters - Feb. 22, 2013
Ghost Light - Apr. 12, 2013
Opening night performances are extra special! Meet the cast, director and designers after the show for an open-forum discussion of the show. Complimentary refreshments will be served.
WHAT YOU GET--Season FLEX Pass
The 2012/2013 Season FLEX PASS includes 4 theatre play tickets, to be used in any combination during the season. Use all of the tickets during one play performance or spread them out and use one at a single performance of each our regular season plays:

FLEX PASS RULES:
You may use your FLEX PASS at any performance described above for which seats are still available. It's best to CALL AHEAD to reserve a ticket to the show of your choice. Call early to avoid not getting a seat due to a sold out performance!

When you purchase any 8 tickets or more in a single order, you automatically save 15% off the price of those tickets purchased separately. This discount is available online, by phone or at the Box Office.
