It's an experience unlike any other: Let Cal Shakes host you and your guests to an unforgettable afternoon or evening of thrilling theater and breathtaking beauty in the glorious Bruns Amphitheater.

A Cal Shakes theater party is the perfect event for client entertainment, clubs, birthdays or anniversaries, singles or student groups, or as a fundraiser for your organization. You need only ten paid admissions to receive our group discount - a savings of $10 off the single ticket price!

How to Order Group Tickets

Ordering group tickets is easy.
Tell us:

• Which play

• Which date

• Which section of the Theater

(If your tickets are for Section E, our Terrace seating, you may want to bring your own low-backed beach chair for added comfort. Or, if you prefer, you can rent one from us for only $3. (All other seating sections have chairs provided.)

• How many seats
(you only need 10 to qualify for our group rate!)

• How you prefer to pay

(personal or business check, credit card or cash)

That's all there is to it! NOTE: Group ticket prices subject to change.

Payment Information

A 50% nonrefundable deposit at the time of ordering is required to guarantee your group the best available seats.
Your final ticket count and the balance of payment are due no later than 2 weeks before the performance date.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover; personal or business check; cash; or money order. 

*There is no permanent seating at the Bruns Amphitheater. Plastic chairs are preplaced in most sections. If you are seated in our Terrace section, the seats are low-to-the-ground beach chairs. Patrons sitting in the Terrace only may also choose to bring their own chair; if you choose to bring your own, it must be a low-backed beach chair (no camp chairs), with a seat no more than six inches off the ground and a backrest no taller than shoulder height (so the people behind you can see!).
