Virtual Ticketing recipients are chosen at random to receive tickets, not in the order requests are received.

In the tradition of Joe Papp, Summer Supporter tickets for THE WINTER'S TALE and THE MERCHANT OF VENICE are available in packages of two tickets for a tax-deductible contribution of $350. The two tickets can be used in any combination for this summer's Shakespeare in the Park productions. These reserved seats are only available for a limited time to ensure that the highest number of free seats will be available to distribute to the general public on the day of the show.
