Ticket Price Guide


Cardinal Stage has a ticket for every budget! Single tickets, Season Subscriptions, and ticket packages are available.

Tickets range from $12.95 – $41.95 and the price is determined by three factors:

Who is the ticket for? Under-35 Young Professionals, Students (includes students of all ages) and Children (12 and under) receive a discount on single tickets.

Which specific performance do you want to attend? Cardinal Stage shows are designated as PEAK (most popular times) and SUPER SAVER (less in-demand times). On the calendar, PEAK performances are in red and SUPER SAVER performances are in blue.

Where would you like to sit in the theatre? The Buskirk-Chumley Theater is divided into two zones – orchestra seating is Zone A and the balcony seating is Zone B. The Ivy Tech Waldron Auditorium and Rose Firebay are not divided into zones, since this theatre is more intimate.


We recognize that these options still do not work for all budgets. If one of these choices does not work for you, please contact our Managing Director Gabe Gloden at the Cardinal Stage office (812.336.7110 or gabe@cardinalstage.org) and he will be pleased to discuss further options, including ushering at a show and/or utilizing Community Access Tickets. Cardinal Stage provides approximately 250+ Community Access Tickets (or CATs) to kids and family members to see a show each season absolutely free of charge. CATs tickets are funded through generous contributions from area corporate sponsors and individuals in support of Cardinal’s IUCU Education Initiative.

Cardinal Stage aims to cultivate a lifelong passion for the theatre in people of all ages and backgrounds, and we are determined to make our performances affordable for all.

Ushering: For all our shows performed at the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center, we will have an online sign up for the entire season. This commitment requires you to be timely, well dressed, and courteous to our patrons. Currently, there are no ushering opportunities available. Check back soon for updates! 

For all Cardinal Stage productions at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater, please contact the BCT directly to learn about their ushering opportunities.
