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.
