ACT UP posterMembers of the Arts Council Windsor and Region qualify for $8 admission to University Players shows.

University Players offers discounted tickets to arts community

Fans of University Players can now get a ticket to a Saturday matinee for as low as $8, as the theatre company offers a discount entry to members of the local arts community.

The “Arts Community Tickets to University Players,” or ACT UP, offers the $8 ticket to patrons able to show proof of some form of involvement in the arts — a pay stub, a business card, a name in a show program, a membership card for any qualifying community organization, including the Arts Council Windsor and Region.

University Players offers six shows over the course of the school year; the season opens September 21 with Mr. Burns: A Post Electric Play.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at or by calling the box office at 519-253-3000, ext. 2808. University of Windsor students can purchase a ticket for just $8, and regular price tickets start at $19.
