To purchase tickets by phone, call Brown Paper Tickets: 1-800-838-3006

For general inquiries, please call the Forum Theatre box office: 202-643-4712

* Please note: there are no returns or exchanges for any ticket type; only Forum Members can make changes to reservations. If you purchase advance tickets and are more than 15 minutes late we will release your seats if there are patrons waiting in our Pay What You Want line (see below).


2) Pay What You Want

It's as simple as it sounds. An hour before every show, a majority of our tickets will be available at whatever price you want to pay, first-come, first-serve as part of Forum for All.

YOU set the price. YOU decide what a fair price is in exchange for good theatre. YOU determine what you can pay. If that's a dollar, you are more than welcome. If you are willing to pay more to help defray the costs of making theatre, that's great too! Remember: 
Pay What You Want tickets at the door. First-come, first-serve!

All we ask is that you give us your contact information so that we can invite you back to the next show, learn more about our audience, and invite you to further support Forum for All.  

Note: We set aside 51% of tickets to be sold for every show, at the door, as pay-what-you-want. So even if the advanced tickets are sold out, there will be tickets at the door. Once those tickets are sold out, we start a wait list so you certainly want to get there early! 


3) Forum Membership

Become a Member of Forum Theatre. Your all-access pass to our season, membership invites you into open rehearsals, special events, and any performance that you would like to attend. Members can reserve advance tickets to any show, choose their seat in the theatre, and receive an array of fun and handy benefits.


Group Sales

The more people you bring, the less you spend, and the more fun you have!

Bring a group of 8 or more, advance sale tickets are only $15 each.
Bring a group of 25 or more, advance ticket sales are only $10 each.  

No tickeing fees.

Have a group of 8 or more but they prefer to pay individually? No problem! 
We are more than willing to set something up an Entourage Offer.

Sound enticing or have any questions? Email Stacey, our Forum For All Coordinator today to book your group. 


Special Offers 

"Industry Night" - As theatre artists we understand that Monday's and Tuesday's are your free evenings, which makes it impossible to see other theatre's work! So we've added an extra show to our run on a Monday to ensure you don't miss out on what your collegues are doing. 

* Forum Usher Team - Volunteer with Forum and see the show for free! We need 2-3 volunteer ushers per performance, so email Stacey, our Forum For All Coordinator to sign up.


Ticket Policies

Ticket sales are final. There are no refunds or exchanges on Forum's end; only Forum Members can change their reservations.

If you are purchasing tickets through Brown Paper Tickets check out their refund policy here.  If you purchase advance tickets and you are more than 15 minutes late, we will release your tickets to the Pay What You Want public if there is a line. 

The box office will be open an hour before the show, and the house will open 15-30 minutes before the show. Remember it can be tricky to find parking in Downtown Silver Spring on busy nights. We suggest you arrive 30 minutes early to park and get to know our new Forum For All program. Check out a list of garages here.

Group discounts are not offered during certain performances and special events. Group discounts cannot be combined with any other discount or promotional offer.
