We hope you’ll stay in touch with us. In addition to our various online outlets (@GenericTheater on Instagram, Facebook, and elsewhere) we encourage you to sign-up for our email newsletter. We’ll keep you informed of upcoming productions, audition notices, special events, and more.


Where is the Generic Theater?

We’re literally underground — in the basement of Chrysler Hall. If you approach the Chrysler Hall Box Office (near the fountain), enter one of the red corner doors flanking the ticketing windows, walk down the stairs to the bottom level, and follow the Generic Theater signs. Alternatively, you can drive into the Scope Parking Garage, stay to the right, drive down the ramp to the bottom (Level U), and follow the Generic signs.

Tickets & Passes

Buying Tickets

Buy early and save! Tickets can be ordered online, with discounts for advance purchases, groups of 10+, military, senior, and student patrons. Tickets can also be purchased in-person beginning 1 hour before performances at our underground theater box office. Our best deal is the $60 GoTicket package offering four tickets that can be redeemed in any combination for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time  in March or An Enemy of the People in May. Come out and see a show!

Putting on a Show


Generic Theater is a volunteer organization, so we need many hands to mount a successful production. Whether you’re a veteran designer, builder, or stage manager, or you’ve never worked on an show before, we can find a place for you. Learn more about our many volunteer opportunities and sign-up for upcoming shows.
