Student Tickets 

W&M students are eligible to receive a free ticket for each performance produced by Theatre & Dance. Students must use their WM email and select the "WM Student" ticket option, as well as enter a promo code on the checkout screen. The promo code is shared through Student Happenings and is only valid for one ticket per transaction, so groups of students that wish to sit together must make separate reservations with adjoining seats. Free student tickets may also be claimed at the Box Office on show nights, with presentation of Student ID.
