Think of [email protected] as a VIP club for young professionals

[email protected] offers relative newcomers to Wharton Center the chance to see great shows at a discount rate usually reserved for season subscribers, and each show includes an opportunity to attend exclusive events with behind-the-scenes access.

NextGen is meant for single ticket-buyers, couples and groups of friends in their 20s, 30s and 40s to experience Wharton Center with their peer group and see for themselves why the performing arts is so powerful.

Benefits of [email protected]

Save. Exclusive discounts have been made available for [email protected] ticketbuyers. Take 10% off prime Zone I single tickets for most [email protected] events.  

Access. 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, took everyone back to school on a party bus for Matilda, and personally met some amazing artists. You’ll also enjoy great food and more.

Meet. Come on your own, along with friends, on a date, in a group, however you like. You’ll be meeting new people in a fun, hip new atmosphere all while enjoying a great night out.

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