Veterans Circle: A Community Circle Program

Veterans are invited to connect with each other through their shared experience of art and life with Veterans Circle. We are deeply grateful to veterans and active military for their service. Three performances each season offer free Community Circle tickets exclusively to veterans organizations. Following the performance, veterans come together at a facilitated talk-back and reception.


Admission is free to qualifying veterans' organizations. Tickets limited, based on availability. 

Check back soon for application information for our 2024/25 season.
