West Philly Rush
West Philly Rush is an exciting program offering significantly reduced tickets exclusively to our West Philadelphia neighbors! West Philly Rush provides $15 tickets to many Annenberg Center performances including world renowned theatre, dance, jazz and world music artists and companies. Discount is not valid for film screenings or guest events, and some other restrictions do apply. Please call the Box Office with any questions and to check on availability.
While the number of tickets will vary by performance and availability, West Philly Rush tickets will be distributed via an in-person lottery on the day of the show. Proof of residency in one of the following zip codes must be presented: 19104, 19131, 19139, 19142, 19143, 19145, 19151 or 19153. This may take the form of a valid driver's license or a non-driver's license photo ID. Each West Philadelphia resident who presents valid proof of residency may buy up to two tickets, if available.
How to Purchase
- Call the Box Office at 215.898.3900 to check on availability before coming in person.
- On the day of the performance, go to the Box Office any time prior to two hours before the show starts (for example, if the show starts at 8 PM, you can get a lottery ticket up until 6 PM.)
- Show your proof of residency and ask for a West Philly Rush lottery ticket (one per person).
- Two hours before the show starts, Box Office staff will begin selecting winning lottery numbers. You must be present and show your lottery ticket to be able to purchase rush tickets.
- If you win, you can purchase up to two tickets for the performance.
How to Purchase for the Children's Festival
West Philly Rush tickets may be available for weekend performances of the Philadelphia Children's Festival. If so, these can be purchased during regular Box Office Hours on the day of the show.
