How had I never heard of this amazing organization? Thankfully a friend with a high school student brought it to my attention and I am now a big fan and have been able to pass this resource on to several client families with teens and even my own teens. Bored teens - no more!
TeenTix is a free pass that gets your teen (age 13-19) in to movies, music, theatre, dance and visual art events around Seattle for just $5. It is easy - just have your teen sign up for a free pass, take it to the event and buy a day of show ticket for $5 - cash only. The catch - this discount is for day of show only. Your teen is able to call ahead to make sure teentix tickets are still available. Check their website at teentix.org for current events
The Teentix website outlines all the partner organizations, available shows and offers your teen the ability to sign up for a weekly newsletter and calendar. For example - Teentix tickets are available for the Seattle Art Museum's special exhibit: GRAPHIC MASTERS: DÜRER, REMBRANDT, GOYA, PICASSO, MATISSE, R. CRUMB - daily in July except on Tuesdays when the museum is closed. Also for the month of July, teens can attend a performance of BIG FISH at the Taproot Theatre. This show is offering a 2 tickets for $10 deal allowing your teen to take you as a date and use the great discount! Any day in July has at least 18 daily opportunities with weekends offering 40+ programs.
The partners include large arts organizations like the 5th Avenue Theatre, ACT Theatre and the EMP museum to smaller organization like Jet City Improv. Opportunities also are available to see a Teotro Zinzanni show, attend the Seattle Opera and visit an exhibit at many of Seattle's art museums including the Henry Art Gallery and the Burke.
An amazing organization and opportunity for your teen to get out and explore the Seattle art's scene.
