Culture Pass Performances - Metro Phoenix

Enjoy the Show!

A variety of the Valley’s arts partners offer Act One Culture Passes to theater, music and dance performances throughout the performance season. These passes include a voucher and instructions to reserve two free tickets to the show.

There are a limited number of passes provided to the libraries by Act One, and most of the libraries distribute their performance passes from only one library in their system (usually their main library). Performance Culture Passes are made available for public checkout no more than 2 weeks prior to the first performance date for that pass. The timing of distribution is at the discretion of the library.

Search your library’s catalogue for “Culture Pass” to see what they have available.
