When checked out just like a book, patrons visit the Alliance website and utilize the pass to receive up to four free tickets to performances.
The Georgia Public Library Service’s new partnership with the Alliance Theatre enables patrons to check out passes for free tickets to certain Theatre performances. Since it launched in May 2022, the pass has provided 448 free admissions to see Trading Places and 511 to see The Incredible Book Eating Boy. Patrons from as far north as Catoosa County and as far south as Brooks County have used the pass.
The Georgia Public Libraries Community Ticket Pass is available at all public libraries statewide. When checked out just like a book, patrons visit the Alliance website and utilize the pass to receive up to four free tickets to performances.
“The Alliance Theatre is thrilled to partner with Georgia Public Library Service to provide public library patrons with free access to our core productions,” said Margarita Kompelmakher, director of community partnerships and engagement at the Alliance Theatre. “It is particularly important to us that this is a statewide program and that the opportunity now exists for a family to visit Atlanta for a day trip and know they can count on an amazing live performance at the Alliance Theatre as part of that experience.”
The Community Ticket Pass is an opportunity for Georgia residents to be introduced to and experience the art of theatrical performances they may not otherwise have been able to. It also provides the Alliance an opportunity to reach Georgians in an entirely new way.
The pass joins a family of passes available to patrons that provide free or reduced cost admissions to educational and recreational organizations statewide.
“We are incredibly grateful to the Alliance Theatre for allowing us such unique access to their rich selection of culturally and artistically immersive performances,” said Julie Walker, vice chancellor for libraries and archives.
