T2 Executive Director Martin Miller is joined by community partners and the Walmart Foundation to unveil "Lights Up for Access", August 2016


TheatreSquared's Lights Up! program extends free, $5 and $10 tickets to help audience members of all backgrounds join the audience throughout the season. Every performance in the T2 season is eligible for Lights Up! tickets with no blackout dates (so long as seats are available).

Lights Up! offers three avenues for access:

  • Low-income families who qualify for federal SNAP assistance can show their current EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) card just once in person at the Walton Arts Center Box Office to gain access to $5 tickets all year — online, by phone or in person.
  • Non-profit organizations serving low-income community members distribute free tickets throughout the year to those facing the greatest barriers to access.
  • Lights Up! also supports the 30 Under 30 $10 ticket program for school-aged students and young adults under the age of 30.

Questions?  Call the Box Office at (479) 443-5600 or contact us directly.


Lights Up! For Access is made possible with generous support from the Walmart Foundation and the TheatreSquared community of donors.

“The Walmart Foundation has worked for years to enhance the quality of life through increasing access to arts and recreation in Northwest Arkansas,” said Julie Gehrki, Senior Director of the Walmart Foundation. “We are excited to support TheatreSquared as they launch ‘Lights Up!,’ which will allow hundreds of local, low-income residents to enjoy high-quality performances.”

We are grateful that this opportunity helps brings our whole community together to be educated, entertained, and inspired. Great art should be a part of every person's life.”
