Tickets for the National Premiere of THE JAMES PLAYS are on sale NOW!
CLICK HERE for the 2-show package (James I & James II)
CLICK HERE for individual tickets for each of the three plays
**Tickets will be sold individually by show for $10 each, or a special 2-Show Package that will get you tickets for James I & James II for a discounted price of $18.
**James III is already 100% SOLD OUT. You're welcome to keep checking the seating map periodically as some times customers cancel their reservations. We will also have a Standby Line where patrons who do not have tickets can get into shows filling empty seats on performance nights. We have had a lot of success in past shows getting a lot of people into the show this way.
**Although the optimal experience is to view the entire trilogy, each of the three plays stands alone as a separate story and can be viewed without seeing any of the other parts. For example, James II is a full play on its own and will make sense even if you have not seen James I. Or if you can't get into James III, the other two plays are complete experiences in and of themselves and won't leave you hanging without the conclusion :-)
CONTENT ADVISORY: Although we have worked with the playwright and the school district to remove language that may be offensive to some high school audiences, there are still some instances of intense violence, mild language, and other suggestive situations portrayed in The James Plays. The plays may not be suitable for audiences of all ages. They are probably equivalent to a PG-13 film rating. James II in particular has some intense visual storytelling that may be scary for young viewers.
OTHER TIPS FOR TICKET BUYERS:
---The seat selection feature on this website is not compatible with all mobile devices, so we recommend you use a laptop or desktop computer when you purchase your tickets and select your seats.
---On the right-hand side of the ticket selection screen, you can switch your view to Balcony view which will allow you to choose seats in the balcony section that also comes down on the extreme sides. These seats offer a unique viewpoint and are great seats as well.
