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.

Tickets are open to all – DCA members and public – so secure your space now, tickets go fast!

Theater Bus

Our Theater Bus offers an easy way to catch a show, but also an 8:30am departure gives theater goers extra time in the city. Discounted Broadway theater tickets for Wednesday matinee performances and transportation by private bus are included in the price. The 2012-2013 subscription included three blockbuster performances – Once, Newsies and Mathilda.

8:30am bus departure
$150 per ticket

Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice.

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.
