Dallas — Awesome news from Kitchen Dog Theater, which, beginning with its current production of Paper Flowers, is replacing its pay-what-you-can program with something better: free tickets.

For every performance (except opening nights), the K-Dogs will have 20 free tickets available in its Admit:ALL program, supported by the Communities Foundation of North Texas.


Here is the Kitchen Dog news release, which explains how it works:

Kitchen Dog Theater is taking bold steps to make art in Dallas more accessible to traditionally underserved audiences with an ambitious new program called Admit:ALL. In conjunction with the opening of the next Kitchen Dog production, Paper Flowers, the company is making 20 tickets to every performance, opening nights excluded, of every Kitchen Dog Theater production available for free. This new program replaces Kitchen Dog’s long standing “Pay What You Can" ticket program.

“Dallas’ arts scene is thriving right now, with a lot of really great innovative work being performed everyday throughout the city, but there are entire populations who think it’s out of reach for them,” said Co-Artistic Director Tina Parker. “The goals of Admit:ALL are to eliminate real or perceived barriers to participation in the arts and serve an audience as diverse as the Dallas community.” Admit:ALL  is supported by a grant from the Communities Foundation of Texas.

How does Kitchen Dog Theater’s Admit:ALL work?

  • Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the box office on the night of the performance
  • In exchange for a free ticket, patrons will only be asked to provide contact information
  • The box office opens 30-minutes prior to performance and seating begins 15 minutes prior to performance.
  • All Kitchen Dog Theater seating is general admission 

“We believe that art shouldn't be a luxury, but rather is an essential part of the human experience,” added Managing Director, Tim Johnson. “By increasing accessibility and diversifying audiences, Admit:ALL will allow for meaningful conversations between communities and, hopefully, help foster long-term relationships with new audiences.”


It is the mission of Kitchen Dog Theater... 
to provide a place where questions of justice, morality, and human freedom can be explored. We choose plays that challenge our moral and social consciences, invite our audiences to be provoked, challenged, and amazed. We believe that the theater is a site of individual discovery as well as a force against conventional views of the self and experience. It is not a provider of answers, but an invitation to question. Since theater of this kind is not bound by any tradition, Kitchen Dog Theater is committed to exploring these questions whether they are found in the classics, contemporary works, or new plays. Thanks For Reading
