Know Theatre of Cincinnati


Economic Accessibility

At Know Theatre, it’s important to us to keep all of our shows affordable for all, while making it possible for artists to earn a living in Cincinnati.

We offer a range of ticket prices that allow each audience member to choose a price that works for you.  This way, we can keep theatre accessible to everyone who wants to see a show and still bring in revenue that allows us to make innovative new works while striving to pay a living wage

We’re a 99 seat theatre with general admission seating, with no seat more than 20 feet from the playing space. 

Our lobby bar opens one hour before show time. We hope you’ll come hang out with us pre-show.

We open the doors to the theatre about ten minutes before curtain.

Here’s the breakdown of our ticket prices for Season 26

Making theatre is expensive when you pay a living wage! It will cost over $100 per available seat to make our MainStage season this year.

Living Wage Tickets: $45

If you’re able to pay more for a ticket, you help our artists survive AND keep the Know accessible to all.

Mainstage Tickets: $35

Our regular priced ticket option.

Low-cost Admission Option: $25

Our lower priced option.

For folks who otherwise might not be able to take part, we also make Wednesday performances even more accessible through a program we call The Welcome Experiment:

Welcome Experiment Advance Tickets: $10

At Wednesday night MainStage performances, we’ve got tickets available in advance for just $10.

Welcome Experiment Walkup Tickets: $0 (or pay what you wish)

For Wednesday night MainStage performances, half of the seats are reserved for walkup customers, with tickets available at no cost.

SecondStage $20

Sometimes we do shows outside of our MainStage programming, usually on the cabaret stage in our bar, the Underground, but sometimes in other locations. Get tickets to those events for $20.

Multi-ticket plans for our dedicated fans

6 ticket Flex-pass: $120

For the frugally minded who want to plan ahead: you can get a flex pass that allows you to reserve seats for performances at the low price of $20 a ticket. Such a deal!

Membership: $250/year

It’s one reserved ticket to every MainStage and SecondStage show, and unlimited walkups to any subsequent performances. If you’re at the Know all the time, this is your best deal.

Exchange/Refund Policy

While we do our best to accommodate ticket exchanges (We understand! Life happens!) we cannot guarantee any exchanges and we are unable to offer refunds on tickets sold.
