"How do I purchase tickets for a Forum show?"

There are 3 easy ways to get your seat:

Advance Sales - Pay What You Want - Membership


Guaranteed Advance Sale Tickets

$30-35 - General Admission. Purchase an advance sale ticket and ensure that you will have a seat at the show. Limited number available per performance.


All tickets to Forum's (Re)Acts Series will be Pay What You Want and available one our prior to the performance at the door.


To purchase tickets by phone, call Brown Paper Tickets: 1-800-838-3006

For general inquiries, please call the Forum Theatre box office: 301-588-8279

* Please note: there are no returns or exchanges for any ticket type; only Forum Members can make changes to reservations. If you purchase advance tickets and are more than 15 minutes late we will release your seats if there are patrons waiting in our Pay What You Want line (see below).

Pay What You Want Tickets

It's as simple as it sounds. An hour before every show, a majority of our tickets will be available at whatever price you want to pay, first-come, first-serve as part of Forum for All.

YOU set the price. YOU decide what a fair price is in exchange for good theatre. YOU determine what you can pay. If that's a dollar, you are more than welcome. If you are willing to pay more to help defray the costs of making theatre, that's great too! Remember: 
Pay What You Want tickets at the door. First-come, first-serve!

All we ask is that you give us your contact information so that we can invite you back to the next show, learn more about our audience, and invite you to further support Forum for All.  

Note: We set aside 51% of tickets to be sold for every show, at the door, as pay-what-you-want. So even if the advanced tickets are sold out, there will be tickets at the door. Once those tickets are sold out, we start a wait list so you certainly want to get there early!
