Free Performing Arts Tickets Waiting For You

MDC Live Arts is offering free admission to Miami Dade College students for their 2017-2018 season.

This will be the first time MDC Live Arts is offering free tickets to MDC students; previously, student tickets were available at a discount rate of $10.

“We have always strived to make our shows accessible to students because of our strong belief in the arts as a powerful teaching tool” said Kathryn Garcia, executive director of MDC Live Arts. “Artists inspire, offer new perspectives and challenge the status-quo. Attending a concert, dance or theater performance can be transformative, changing the way you think and feel about a particular topic or culture.”

Students can only receive one ticket per show. The free tickets are only available the night of the performance. Students need to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the show and provide student ID. Tickets are available on a first come, first serve basis.

MDC Live Arts will also be offering a 15% discount to all MDC employees. Employees must use the code: MDCFAC when purchasing tickets online and they must show a valid employee ID when picking up the tickets at Will Call. The offer is limited to one discounted ticket per employee.

This season, entitled: Ojalá/Inshallah: Wishes from the Muslim World, is designed to use the arts to challenge widespread assumptions concerning contemporary Muslim identity and to highlight diversity within Muslim culture.

The season opened on Nov. 4 with The Sachal Ensemble: Song of Lahore at The Olympia Theater. MDC Live Arts’ next performance will be Dec. 6 through Dec. 9: Tania El Khoury: Gardens Speak & As Far As My Fingertips Take Me at The Gleason Room at the Fillmore Miami Beach.
