Benefits of NextGen@Wharton

Access. Along with an exclusively priced ticket, you have the opportunity to attend VIP events, meet the artists, get a behind-the-scenes look at shows, and enjoy one-of-a-kind social opportunities. For instance, we transformed a lounge into an Irish pub, had summer tent parties, and took everyone back to school on a party bus for Matilda.

Meet. Come on your own, along with friends, on a date, in a group, however you like. Meet other performing arts appreciators in this unique atmosphere, all while enjoying a great night out.

Connect. Engage with Wharton Center in a unique way, learn more about the shows, and connect with peers.
