Passes are a wonderful way to maximize your festival experience. All pass holders enjoy special perks and benefits above and beyond general admission ticket buyers. 

VIP Black Cards are great for those who want to immerse themselves in a marathon of theatre. VIP access is afforded day and night to ALL events with the freedom to come and go without the need for waiting in line  or getting tickets.  Arrive 15 minutes before show time and you'll always get first pick of the best seats in the house!

I am sitting here in my office with this feeling of jubilation. You and your staff and family have provided me with some of the most special theatre moments of my life and career… I have been to many conferences and festivals. What you all have accomplished in such a short time has been amazing and a testament to your strong faith." ~Prof. A. Minkins, Winston-Salem State Univ.
