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!
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.
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.

The Festival's new Workshop Pass allows patrons, artists, and students to attend four hands-on workshops during Festival Week on the craft of Japanese theater arts, led by renowned performance masters.
Taught by Elizabeth Dowd, Natsu Onoda Power, and other theater professionals, the 2019 workshops will provide an introduction to the techniques of Japanese Noh (classical drama), kamishibai (storytelling with drawings), kabuki (popular theater), and kyogen (traditional farce).
The Workshop Pass also includes tickets to a curated set of four Festival performances, plus admission to the Kathleen Turner Master Class on Saturday morning at Town Hall.
Once you've purchased your Workshop pass, the Festival will contact you with your full schedule of classes and performances.
Students of any age are eligible for the Study Pass if currently enrolled with a full-time course load during the Festival dates. A Study Pass includes up to 10 tickets (one ticket per show), plus free admission to Williams 101 when you wear your Study Pass.
Once you buy your pass, choose your performances by phone or by logging in online (you do not need to reserve tickets for Williams 101). A current student ID is required at time of pick-up.
Study Pass holders are also welcome at the Closing Party.
