What’s the catch when I sign up for MyStage?
No catch. MyStage is designed to fit the budget of theatergoers ages 15-25, so that they can see professional theatre at an affordable price.
I am 14- or 26-years-old. Am I eligible for MyStage?
MyStage membership activates during the season you turn 15 and deactivates the season after you turn 26. So, for this season, if your 15th birthday is between September 2, 2016 and June 4, 2017, you can purchase $10 MyStage tickets. If your 26th birthday is between those dates, then it is your last season to purchase $10 MyStage tickets.

My guest is not 15-to-25 years old; can they still use my second ticket?
Yes. The MyStage member who is 15-to-25 years old must purchase the ticket and attend the show, but they can use their second ticket for a guest of any age.
What performance dates can I get MyStage tickets?
You can purchase your $10 MyStage tickets for any performance of the Segerstrom and Julianne Argyros season shows, excluding opening nights. Limited performance dates are available for A Christmas Carol.
Are these tickets for crappy seats only?
No. MyStage tickets are available for section A and B seating. Both of our stages are relatively intimate, so all of the seats are good!
When can I purchase tickets?
MyStage tickets become available approximately one month prior to the first preview performance of a production. MyStage emails will remind you when tickets go on sale and the promotional code you will need to purchase those tickets..
When do I get my tickets?
Your actual tickets to the show can be picked up no earlier than two (2) hours prior to performance time. You will need to bring a valid ID in order to pick up tickets at the Box Office.
Why can’t I pick up my actual tickets earlier?
MyStage is a program just for you. We have found that making the tickets available in this way increases participation and attendance at our shows. Just so you know, you must accompany any guests, so it also helps make sure that your parents don't try to sneak in using your membership tickets! Limiting ticket pick-up to two (2) hours prior to performance time is to ensure that you attend the show. (We have had some parents try to use their children’s MyStage membership to attend shows without their kids.)
Can I sit with my other friends who are MyStage members?
Yes. Please call the Box Office at (714) 708-5555 for special seating requests, subject to availability.
I purchased my ticket, but now I can’t go.
We’re sorry to hear that. Unfortunately all MyStage tickets are non-exchangeable, non-refundable and non-transferable. But, keep an eye out for information about the next show!

How do I know that a show is appropriate for me to see?
We believe that all of our productions are appropriate for patrons who are 15-years-old and older. However, we understand that some patrons may not appreciate profanity, nudity or other adult content. Use the MyStage Guide to find out if any productions you are interested in contain this kind of content and whether or not the show is appropriate for you. You also can email us with any additional questions you may have.
Where do the performances take place?
Do I have to pay for parking?
All performances are at South Coast Repertory, located at 655 Town Center Drive, Costa Mesa, CA 92626.
Yes, there's a fee for parking in a garage near the theatre. Performance parking is available for $10 in nearby parking structures and is not included when you purchase your MyStage ticket. No validation is available. Price is subject to change without notice.
What should I wear to a performance?
That's up to you—you can dress casual or fancy! Just remember, you’re attending the theatre!
Can I bring my cell phone?
Yes. But remember: we will ask you to turn it off during the performance. Then, during intermission, before or after the performance, feel free to check-in on Facebook. Tweet about the show or take pictures for Instagram with your friends in the lobby or terrace. However, we do not allow you to take photographs or video during the performance.
Can I bring my pager?
Wow! You’re 15–25 and you know what a pager is? Well, sure, you can bring it; just remember to turn it off during the performance.
