How to Buy 2012 Next Wave Season Tickets

Whether it’s your first time attending the Next Wave Festival or your 10th, getting season tickets can be a little confusing at first, mostly because there are so many choices!

If you want to purchase tickets to four or more Next Wave shows at the Opera House or Harvey Theater, then consider purchasing a season ticket package.

Why purchase a season ticket package? One reason is to guarantee your place at some of the most popular shows that will likely sell out. Another reason is to save a bit of cash: you save 20% off up to six shows, and if you buy seven or more shows you save a whopping 30% off the regular price.

But a prime reason is that you get first crack at the 15 Next Wave shows at the new BAM Fisher. These shows are offered as add-ons to a season ticket package and they represent the next generation of artists taking advantage of the flexible new venue. All tickets to these shows are $20, and the space is much smaller (seating arrangements can vary, but the maximum number is 250 seats per performance) so the sell out risk is very high. Trust us, you don’t want to miss out on the innovative shows in this space, which involve lasers and 2x4s and rocking chairs. You can also add on tickets to artist talks for either of our brand-new series:  On Truth (and Lies) with Simon Critchley, and Unbound (with our pals at Greenlight Bookstore).

When to Buy Season Tickets:
1) Become a Friend of BAM and purchase season tickets now (before the public has access on Mon, Jun 25).

For just $75, you can become a member and get the best available seats before the general public. Members also receive benefits including: discounts on Artist Talks, invitations to opening night parties, discounts to local restaurants, and a 20% discount at Greenlight Bookstore. In other words, you get the primo treatment.

2) If you’ve purchased season tickets to either of our past two seasons (2012 Winter/Spring Season and 2011 Next Wave) then you can buy season tickets starting June 18.

3) If you just want to buy four or more shows, then mark your calendar for June 25th. That’s the date when everyone can purchase a season ticket package. And don’t worry about committing so far in advance: you can exchange your tickets for an alternate date for free if something else comes up.

Note: you cannot buy season tickets in person at the box office—our box office is closed during the summer and isn’t set up to process these requests. If you’re looking for suggestions and guidance on shows and seating, you should call—one of our friendly phone operators can help you.

As always, let us know if you have any questions, and we’ll do our best to help you. If you’re a Next Wave junkie, then season tickets are a no-brainer. If you’re contemplating making the plunge, we can’t think of a better time to be a part of the largest Next Wave Festival ever.
