General Passport FAQs

Q. I noticed this season is different than last year’s, what’s up?
A. Passport to the Arts Season 9 will be curated in two parts so that we can better explore the depth and expanse of art being produced in this city. The Winter Series will include events in February, March and April. The Fall Series will include events in October, November and December. Each of these six events will feature a different arts organization, and you can choose to subscribe to one or both series separately.

What is unchanged is the full Passport to the Arts experience – along with the arts ticket, there will be adult beverages and bites to eat included along the way.

Q. Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
A. For the enjoyment of everyone, this series is not intended or appropriate for audiences under the age of 21.

Q. I’m a young professional, but not really new to the arts scene. Can I participate?
A. Absolutely! The Passport to the Arts is about cultivating a younger, diverse and most-often new, audience for the arts in Indianapolis. Maybe you’re interested in exploring other art forms. Plus, who commits after a first date? We know an introduction to the arts may take seeing more than one performance before you’re ready to go directly to the box office.

Passport Subscriber FAQs

Q. What if I can’t attend a planned event?
A. We totally understand – things happen. A lot of creative energy has been poured into planning these events. In respect to our arts partners please lock these three dates into your calendars and understand that we are no longer able to accommodate alternative performance dates.

Q. What about canceling after I have RSVP’d?
A. Please keep in mind that many performance nights are sold out crowds. If you find yourself unable to use your ticket might we suggest sharing your love of for the arts and surprising a friend with a ticket?

Our goal is for the Passport series to be a great experience for you, and for each of our collaborating arts partners. If a seat is saved for you and goes unclaimed, your ticket is considered used. Please email if you have specific questions.

Q. My [partner, friend, cousin] is visiting. Can I purchase an extra ticket?
A. In many cases, another performance ticket can be purchased directly through the box office. To initiate this for a Passport event, first email

Pro tip – this is best to do on occasion and should not be an alternative to having a Passport subscription. You absolutely need to let us know in advance, and please understand there will be occasions during the season when we simply do not have the space available to allow guests to join our group.

Q. If my [partner, friend, cousin] and I buy passports, and one of us can’t make it to a performance, will someone else be able to use my Passport?
A. Definitely. You’ll just need to drop us a note before the show. Keep in mind, tickets will always remain in the name of the original subscriber.
