Helpful Tips


Choosing a Show

  • The right show for your group. Even student-friendly shows may have language and themes that are not appropriate for your group. Our team can give you more information and tell you what other educators have shared.
  • Try a play! Non-musical plays often align with curricula. These plays can be limited runs, so be sure to plan accordingly.
  • Connect the theatre with the classroom. Create an enriching trip for your students. Our study guides are a great place to start.
  • Need help? Call us at 866-302-0995. We talk to educators every day and can guide you through the process.

Ordering Student Tickets

  • Who is eligible for student pricing? Student groups and accompanying teachers and chaperones.
  • Look for student rates. They're listed in the pricing grid on a show's page. 
  • Order early. Some student-friendly shows are in high demand. Try to include alternate shows or dates in your request. 
  • Get your paperwork in order. We'll let you know if your show requires a note on school letterhead for verification. Download a template here.
  • When do I pay? Payment policies vary by show, and you don’t have to pay when you request. Request the maximum number of tickets you think you’ll need and adjust your numbers down when you pay.

Planning Your Student Trip

  • Give yourself time. Getting to Manhattan means extra organization and planning—especially for buses. It'll take longer than you think, so pad your schedule accordingly.
  • Arrive early. Get to the theatre well before curtain time. Many shows do not allow seating for latecomers.
  • Be city smart. NYC is the safest large city in the U.S., but it is busy. Bring plenty of chaperones and talk to your students about safety before your trip.
  • Use your feet or the subway. Depending on the distance between your activities (show, dining, workshop, etc.), walking or taking the subway with your group may be faster.
  • Workshop check-in. It takes time to get everyone though building security and in and out of the rehearsal studio.  
  • Running late? Call Broadway Inbound at 866-302-0995 as soon as you can, and we’ll try to notify the theatre.
