Special Ticket Opportunities

 

Woodminster tickets are already affordable by industry standards, about a third of what you’ll pay when you see a Broadway tour.  But we want all the musical theater lovers in our community to be able to afford to come.  And we want families to be able to afford to introduce their children to live theater at Woodminster.  So we’ve designed a variety of programs, and maybe one of them is perfect for you!

 

If you have questions about any of these programs, please call 510-531-9597, or email the box office. (Before June 1, call our winter box office number, 510-339-0241 for quicker response.)

 

 

 

  • Season tickets and flex passes

    A season ticket gets you admission to all three shows, gives you priority in ticket purchasing, and saves you about 15% over the price of the same tickets bought separately.  Season tickets range in price from $80.18 to $164.33, depending on where in the amphitheater you wish to sit.

     

    Flex passes cost $123, and are season tickets you don't reserve in advance.  A  flex pass gets you admission to all three shows, and you can claim the best available seat when you redeem the pass after June 1.

     

    Visit our Season Ticket Information page.

     

  • Everyday Discount for seniors

    Audience members who are 62 or older get a $2 discount on regular tickets.  (Does not apply to season tickets or already discounted tickets of any kind.)  You don't have to do anything special; just specify when you purchase your tickets that they will be used by seniors.

  • Kids Come Free

    KIDS COME FREE to Woodminster Summer Musicals!

    • 16 and younger

    • Available only at the Woodminster box office the night of the performance, no advance reservations

    • 1 free ticket per full price adult or 1 free ticket for 2 group rate or "Oaklander opening night" tickets

    • Not available on final dress rehearsals or combined with any other discount or promo

     

    Since 1989, Woodminster Summer Musicals has offered free tickets to children and teens 16 and younger who are accompanying paying adults to any performance. These tickets are not reserved in advance; you should present your adult ticket (and your child!) at the box office after 5:30 p.m. on the night of the performance and you will receive a free child's ticket as close to your adult ticket as possible. Or to guarantee that your tickets will be together, purchase your adult ticket on the night of the performance.

     

    One free child's ticket will be issued for each adult ticket. If the adult tickets were purchased with a group rate or other half price program, a free child's ticket will be issued per TWO adult tickets. No Kids Come Free tickets on $20 dress rehearsals.

     

    If it's important to you to reserve tickets in advance so you have dual advantage of better seats and everyone sitting together, we now offer a new kids' tickets discount program, K75.  See details in next tab.

  • New K75 tickets! Kids 75% discount

    About 75% Off for Kids, Reserve in Advance

    • 16 and younger

    • May be purchased any time, must be picked up at box office at performance

    • Up to 5 discounted kids' tickets for each full price adult

    • Not available on final dress rehearsals or combined with other discounts or promos except season tickets (inquire at box office for details.)

     

    Our Kids Come Free program is a great deal for families, but doesn't allow you to reserve the children's tickets in advance.  For those of you who want to lock down seats for your whole party days, weeks, or months before the performance, we now offer K75.

     

    K75 tickets can be purchased at the same time as your adult tickets, even months before the performance, and will be held at the box office.  This way, everyone sits together and you get the best seats at the time you place the order instead of the night of the performance.  Also, while Kids Come Free tickets are limited to one kid per one adult, K75 tickets let you get the discount for up to 5 kids for each adult in your party.

     

    K75 tickets lets you extend your family party to include your kids' best buddies, or arrange a birthday party outing, or get any small group of children or young teens together for a fun evening at the amphitheater.

     

    K75 Tickets (adjusted to include $2.50 city facility fee) are:

    Box seats (very limited availability) $18 (reg. $64)

    Section 3 (center) $15 (reg. $52)

    Section 2 or 4 (center side) $14 (reg. $45)

    Section 1 or 5 (side) $10 (reg. $31)

     

    Order your K75 tickets along with your regular adult tickets on the same order form or online.  All orders including K75 tickets will be held at the box office for pickup the night of the performance.

     

  • Millennials' half price tickets for 17-30

    Are you 30 or younger?  Just show up at the box office before any performance, present your ID to verify your age, and you may purchase tickets in any section for half price.

     

    Bring a date or get a big group together for a distinctly Oakland experience.  Come early for a hike along Joaquin Miller Park's miles of rustic forest trails.  Find some of the monuments erected by Joaquin Miller himself, soak up the sunshine in hillside meadows, and enjoy redwood-filtered views of the city and bay.  Bring a picnic and a bottle of wine to enjoy before or during the show.

     

    (Insiders' picnic tips:  Millennial tickets are only available the night of performance so you can't reserve picnic tables in advance, but if you inquire when you purchase your tickets, there may still be tables available inside the amphitheater.  Or find an inviting spot in the picnic grounds around the theater or along the cascades behind the theater.  Or bring your food and drink into the amphitheater and enjoy your dinner in your seats.  If you like, you can supplement your picnic with popcorn, coffee, sweets, and other concessions available inside.)

     

    Half price tickets (adjusted to include $2.50 city facility fee) are:

    Box seats (if available) $34 (reg. $64)

    Section 3 (center) $28 (reg. $52)

    Section 2 or 4 (center side) $24 (reg. $45)

    Section 1 or 5 (side) $17 (reg. $31)

     

  • half price for groups of 25+

    Groups of 25 or more can purchase half-price tickets for any Thursday, Friday, or Sunday performance. (No Saturdays.)

     

    Special group discounts provide an excellent way for organizations to raise funds or just enjoy an evening together. Your organization can purchase tickets at half price and sell them at face value, or pass the savings along to your members. Group tickets must be purchased in advance, not at the door the night of performance.

     

    Prices

    Group tickets are half price adjusted to include the City of Oakland's facility fee of $2.50 per ticket.

There are no additional discounts on half-price tickets for seniors.

  • New! Discount for Mini-groups of 12+

    Groups of 12 or more may purchase tickets for about 15% off for any performance, about the same discount as for season tickets, without the 3-show commitment. This discount is designed for the perfect evening out for a small office or a large family, or any group that isn’t quite big enough to qualify for the half price 25+ group discount.

     

    New K75 program (about 75% off tickets for kids 16 and younger) can be combined with this program, but you must order at least 12 adult tickets.

     

    Alternatively, mini-group tickets do qualify for Kids Come Free companion tickets for children and teens 16 and younger, but the free tickets cannot be reserved in advance and will not be with the original group.

  • Oaklanders' Opening night special

    Welcome, Oaklanders!

    Since 1967, Woodminster Summer Musicals has been a tradition in Oakland's Joaquin Miller Park. Our shows are performed at Woodminster Amphitheater, an historic city venue that overlooks Oakland and the bay. The beautiful, woodsy, outdoor setting is a magical place for American Musical Theater, and we draw large crowds from all over the bay area and beyond.

     

    We'd like to extend a special welcome to our Oakland neighbors, and we invite you to come to any opening night for half-price. Just use the code (MyCity) when you order tickets online, by phone at 510-531-9597, or in person at the box office.  However you purchase your tickets, you'll pick them up in person on opening night, and we'll ask for identification with an Oakland address.

     

    In 2017, opening nights are July 7 (Mamma Mia), August 4 (South Pacific), and September 1 (A family-oriented show to be announced).

     

    Half price tickets (adjusted to include $2.50 city facility fee) are:

    Box seats (if available) $34 (reg. $64)

    Section 3 (center) $28 (reg. $52)

    Section 2 or 4 (center side) $24 (reg. $45)

    Section 1 or 5 (side) $17 (reg. $31)

     

    If you want to bring children or teens, you may receive ONE free ticket for anyone 16 or younger for each TWO half-price tickets you purchase for any opening night.  Kids Come Free tickets cannot be released until the night of the performance. If you wish to use the half-price code (MyCity) and bring kids for free, please purchase your tickets in one of the following ways:

     

    • Purchase your tickets at the upper box office between 5:30 and 8:00 p.m. on the night of the performance. Be sure to say "MyCity," and ask for Kids Come Free seats as well. Woodminster Amphitheater is very large, and we always have tickets available on opening night.

     

    • Call our box office at 510-531-9597 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. during the week of the performance you want to attend, or come in person to the lower box office during those hours. Tell our friendly staff person that you wish to use the code MyCity and also get Kids Come Free tickets. Pay for the half-price seats, and we will assign your seats together and hold your tickets at Will Call for pick-up the night of the performance.

     

    • If you already have your half-price tickets and later decide you want to bring children or teens, present your tickets at the box office on the night of the performance, and we'll assign you Kids Come Free seats as close as possible to those you have purchased, but they will not be exactly adjacent. Sorry, our system does not allow us to exchange tickets already purchased.

     

     

Woodminster Summer Musicals produced in cooperation with the City of Oakland Parks & Recreation Department.
