Pass for Free Tickets to Alliance Theatre Available at Local Public Libraries

The Georgia Public Library Service (GPLS) announced this week a new partnership with the Alliance Theatre to provide a pass for free tickets to certain Theatre performances.

The Georgia Public Libraries Community Ticket Pass is available at all public libraries statewide. When checked out just like a book, patrons visit the Alliance website and utilize the pass to receive up to four free tickets to performances on either the Coca-Cola or Hertz Stage.

“The Alliance Theatre is thrilled to partner with Georgia Public Library Service on a program that provides all their public library patrons with free access to the theatre’s core productions for families and adults,” said Margarita Kompelmakher, director of community partnerships and engagement at the Alliance Theatre.

The Community Ticket Pass is an opportunity for Georgia residents and public library patrons to be introduced to, and experience, the art of theatrical performances they may not otherwise have been able to. It also provides the Alliance an opportunity to engage with its local community and reach the rest of Georgia in an entirely new way.

“It is particularly important to us that this is a state-wide program, and that the opportunity now exists for a family to visit Atlanta for a day trip and know they can count on an amazing live performance at the Alliance Theatre as part of that experience,” said Kompelmakher.

The Community Pass is available at all 407 public libraries in Georgia, including Sequoyah Regional Library System (SRLS) which serves Cherokee, Pickens, and Gilmer Counties. It joins a family of “Experience Passes” available to patrons that provide free or reduced cost admission to educational and recreational organizations statewide.

“Georgia’s public libraries are so excited to partner with the Alliance Theatre. We are incredibly grateful to them for allowing us such unique access to their rich selection of culturally and artistically immersive performances,” said Julie Walker, associate vice chancellor and state librarian.

The Community Ticket Pass is launched just in time for Georgia Public Library patrons to enjoy two new world-premiere musicals at the Alliance Theatre. Trading Places, which runs from May 25-June 26, is a world-premiere musical based on the beloved film. The Incredible Book Eating Boy, which runs from July 13-August 14, is a family-friendly musical inspired by Oliver Jefferies’ book by the same name.
