Pay-What-You-Will Previews

On the Wednesday night prior to opening, Third Rail presents pay-what-you-will preview performances. First-come, first-served tickets are available in the theatre lobby one hour prior to these 7:30pm performances.

Staged Readings

At least once a year, we’ll treat you to a free staged reading. Sometimes we’ll present a play by a similar playwright in our season, or we may show you something we’re looking at for our next season. Or maybe we just found a script we can’t go another month without reading out loud to you. Whatever the case, you’ll hear a great play read by our talented actors—for free!

Rush Tickets

For our main stage productions we offer last minute Rush tickets.  These are available at the box office 15 minutes before the show for $15, cash in hand.  If you are under 25 years old, rush tickets are FREE with photo ID.

Special Events

In conjunction with our Main Stage productions, Third Rail presents several special events throughout the year. Check out Event Listings, or better yet join our Email List and receive information about all upcoming Third Rail Events.

Pre-Show Primers

Join us before the show for a short chat with a Third Rail Company member. About 20 minutes prior to each show, we will pass on interesting facts about the play, its writer, and our production. Grab a glass of wine or a snack at concessions and spend some time with the people who “Move Third Rail.”

Talkbacks

There will be a brief talkback after every Third Rail performance, except when it is immediately followed by another event (such as our opening night reception, readings, panel discussions or NT Live screenings). These 15-minute talkbacks give the audience time to explore the play further through discussions with the director, designers, or cast.

Panel Discussions

If you’re looking for a chance to dig deeper, plan to attend each of three panel discussions presented over the course of our season. These discussions feature carefully chosen experts who lend thematic insight through conversation with the audience. Past topics have included “The Politics of Intimidation”, and “Dissecting Comedy”.
See our Event Listings for details.

Military Discounts

Third Rail Repertory Theatre welcomes U.S. military personnel, spouses and children, as well as U.S. Veterans, and it committed to serving the military personnel in our community. We welcome you to our theatre. We offer 20% off tickets to military personnel, veterans, and their immediate families. Identify yourself as military personnel on the phone or enter the promotional code BLUESTAR at checkout. Discounted tickets are based upon availability on any given date and are not valid with any other offer.

Call (503)235-1101 for tickets.
