Carte Blanche: $775 - $975

An all-access VIP pass like no other... the Carte Blanche.

• See every show in the Festival
• Enjoy VIP reserved seating
• Attend exclusive donor parties

Carte Blanche members receive 12 tickets per pass, and you can use up to two tickets for each production. The tickets can be mixed and matched based on your schedule and preferences. Seats will be saved for Carte Blanche holders until a few minutes before curtain time. This is the only pass that includes enough tickets for you to see every show in the Festival... plus, you'll receive a free Festival gift!

Regular Price:
The price of a regular Carte Blanche includes a $300 tax-deductible donation, and invitations to a Carte Blanche cocktail party and private wine tasting during the Festival.

Sustaining Donor:
For $200 more, you'll automatically become a Sustaining Donor, with a $500 tax-deductible donation included in your Sustaining Donor Carte Blanche pass. In addition to the standard Carte Blanche benefits, sustaining donors will also be invited to a special private brunch during the Festival, as well as receive invitations for exclusive meetings with Festival artists, and more!

Enjoy convenience, flexibility and VIP treatment by bundling all your tickets into one low price with a Carte Blanche.
