Theater Bus & Encore Theater

Make it to Broadway!

We understand how important Broadway shows are to you, so we make it easy with two programs offering discounted tickets: our Theater Bus program includes transportation, and Encore Theater does not. Both programs help ensure you don’t miss out on the best of Broadway this season.

Theater Bus

Our Theater Bus offers an easy way to catch a show, but also an 8:30am departure gives theater goers a head start on the day. Discounted Broadway theater tickets for Wednesday matinee performances and transportation by private bus are included in the price.

This year’s program will begin in October with the latest and greatest Broadway has to offer. So far we are going to see:

Wednesday, October 19th WAITRESS
Fresh from a sold-out run at Boston’s American Repertory Theater, WAITRESS makes its highly anticipated Broadway premiere. Funny, inspiring and surprisingly poignant, this irresistible slice of life features original music and lyrics by 5-time Grammy® nominee Sara Bareilles (“Brave,” “Love Song”), a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam) and direction by Tony Award® winner Diane Paulus (Pippin, Finding Neverland).

Tony winner Jessie Mueller (Beautiful) is Jenna, a waitress and expert pie maker in a small town who dreams of a way out of her loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town’s new doctor may offer her a chance at a fresh start, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes for happiness. But Jenna must summon the strength and courage to rebuild her own life.

Inspired by Adrienne Shelly’s beloved film, WAITRESS is an uplifting new musical celebrating friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.

Two more great shows will be announced.

Encore Theater

The Encore Theater program offers discounted tickets to three popular Broadway productions over the fall, winter and spring. This option provides an alternative to the Theater Bus, for those who prefer another form of transport, or who don’t have the morning free. All tickets are for 2:00pm performances. Tickets can be purchased on a show-by-show basis. Although tickets are offered to the public, DCA members are given first priority.
