Go Straight to the Source

Consider buying tickets straight from the venue when you've got your eye on a must-see show in Austin. By visiting their website, you can explore a whole season of performances and plan your theater adventures. And heading to the venue for paper in your hand might save you all kinds of fees and upcharges.

Stay in the know with up-to-date showtimes, ticket availability, and pricing details from the venue's website or box office. You might even score sweet deals, like discounts for early birds or special packages for families and groups.

Don't be shy - subscribe to your favorite theaters' newsletters and get the inside scoop on exclusive deals and the hottest new productions. And remember, buying direct can save you a pretty penny compared to big outlets like Ticketmaster.


  • Tickets might be less expensive.
  • The box office can point out the best seats in the house.
  • Small venues aren't losing money with reseller fees and upcharges


  • It might require a trip to the venue to buy in person.

Ticket Outlets

You don't always need to default to Ticketmaster. Say "Hi!" to Brown Paper Tickets and Eventbrite, your new pals, for discounted theater experiences. Not only do they get you fab deals on popular shows, but they'll also help you compare prices and find new, exciting venues.

Pssst... here's a secret: next time you're on Ticketmaster or StubHub, check the fee structure before hitting "buy." One of our OTL family members saved $100 on four theater tickets by driving to the venue and buying straight from the source. So, go direct if you can, or at least try the smaller, more community-focused Austin ticket outlets.


  • A variety of Austin theater tickets are at your fingertips.
  • Save time with online purchasing.
  • Some smaller theater companies use Brown Paper Tickets and Eventbrite as their primary ticket outlets.


  • Fees can be significant through some providers.
  • Depending on the outlet, you might not have access to the more intimate local shows.
