Pay What You Can

In an effort to make live theatre available to all, we are now offering a Pay What You Can Performance. This program is aimed at providing increased access to live theatre for our entire community. In addition to our Blue Star Theatres military discounts for active-duty personnel and veterans, Season for Youth Student Matinees, student, senior & educator discounts, our Pay What You Wish program eliminates a barrier for some would-be theatre patrons in the Greater Knoxville region and beyond.

The Clarence Brown Theatre is partnering with local non-profit organizations to spread the word and give back to the Greater Knoxville community. Half of all proceeds from that night’s PWYC tickets will go towards the highlighted non-profit. The selected organization will also have a table set up in the CBT lobby to inform patrons about their non-profit.

Thank you in advance for helping to make our community even better!
