Are you aged 16-25?

Interested in free and discounted theatre tickets and more bits and bobs? Then...

OPT in! is our scheme for 16 to 25 year olds to access free, £5 and £10 tickets, along with free backstage tours, special events and discounts around the lovely city of Oxford.

On this page you can find out which shows this month we have on offer, activities at the Playhouse and you can leave your comments about the shows you've seen, the scheme or anything theatre/cultural related.

To OPT in! all you need to do is buy a membership card for just £1 from the Oxford Playhouse Ticket Office. ***Please bring a passport sized photo and a valid ID which states your birthdate, between 10am - 6pm, Mon - Sat***

Once you've joined, we'll send you an email at the start of every month to let you know about all the free and discounted tickets for the month ahead. You can book yourself plus one non OPT in! member in to a show (but they do need to be under 26 too), just remember to bring your OPT in! card along when you collect your ticket.

There's a limited number available for each show, so book yourself in early to make sure you get your tickets.




Mrs Warren's Profession

Mrs Warren's Profession

Written in 1894, Bernard Shaw’s period drama is full of insight and humane understanding. In this sumptuous production, Sue Holderness (Only Fools and Horses, The Green Green Grass) stars as Mrs Warren alongside Christopher Timothy (All Creatures Great and Small, Doctors, Dial M for Murder).

GOlive Oxford

Soho Comedy Nights

Soho Comedy Nights

The home of the most exciting new writing, comedy and cabaret for the last 15 years, Soho Theatre has forged an unrivalled reputation for spotting ground-breaking talent. This July sees the first of their Soho in Oxford seasons, presenting previews of the best new comedy shows ahead of the world-famous Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing

Driven along by a romance all the more charming for being in denial, Much Ado About Nothing is a miracle of comic and dramatic suspense and gives us, in the bantering Beatrice and Benedick, one of Shakespeare’s wittiest and most endearing pairs of lovers.

Oxford Playhouse and the Bodleian Library are delighted to welcome back the Globe Theatre on Tour to the stunning outdoor setting of the Old Schools Quadrangle.



Have your say!

I LOVE THIS SCHEME! Thank you so much Oxford Playhouse. I saw Love Love Love, it was amazing - didn't know theatre could be like that! And wouldnt have been able to see the show without getting a free ticket. I will tell all my friends about the scheme too. Thanks!
