Broadway Opportunities for Families

The Orpheum Theatre offers several chances for families to get involved with Broadway shows throughout the year:

Rush Nights

For select Broadway shows, students, teachers, school staff members, as well as active and retired members of the military and police and fire departments — including their families — and other first responders with a valid ID can purchase discounted tickets 30 minutes prior to show time at The Orpheum Theatre Box Office. These tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis and are best available seating only. Tickets are usually $20-$25 (cash only). For more information or to check availability, please call the Orpheum Box Office at (901) 525-3000.

Rush nights for Broadway performances are generally announced the week before or the week of the show when availability allows.
