Azuka Theatre

Nicholas Scheppard &
Hannah Parke in Moth



Azuka Theatre invites audiences to pay-what-you-decide for the entire 2016-2017 theater season with a new approach to ticketing.  Supported by a $55,000 grant from The Barra Foundation, the pay-what-you-decide program is designed to bring in new audience members and remove financial barriers to the theater. Audience members will make a reservation to see the show, see the production first, and then pay what they decide based on the value of the experience. Ticket payment can be made after each performance by cash, check or credit card. Patrons can also make payment after the show on the Azuka website.  All money collected will help pay Azuka artists and further support future productions. This approach was tried with an earlier production of Moth this year.   Azuka has scheduled three productions for the upcoming 2016-17 season.  The first is A Philadelphia Premiere by Idris Goodwin: How We Got It On. It will be presented September 21 – October 9, 2016. The second is A World Premiere by Philadelphia Playwright Douglas Williams: SH_THEADS which will be presented February 22 - March 12, 2017.  The third is another World Premiere by a Philadelphia Playwright Jacqueline Goldfinger: The Arsonists. It will be presented May 3 - 21, 2017.  For more information about the season or pay-what-you-decide, visit or phone 215-563-1100.
