Recommendations from The New Guard: Teen Arts Leadership Society.
Happy June and Happy Summer!
I’m Katherine and I have more recommendations from TeenTix’s Arts Leadership Society, The New Guard. In May, we saw a ton of art around Seattle! We kicked it with fellow youth arts group, the Henry Teen Art Collective, at the Seattle Art Museum and explored the permanent collection. We watched as many SIFF movies as we could fit into our schedule. We also saw lots of theater; some of our...Read more →
Dale and Christine Bateman are GiveBIG SUPERSTARS and OMG are they passionate about TeenTix!
Christine introduced Dale to TeenTix after she got to know the TeenTix Press Corps, who were out and about practicing their skills and viewing art at the Balagan Theater where she was Marketing Director. The Press Corps and The New Guard: Teen Arts Leadership Society are a big deal to Christine and Dale. They strongly believe in...Read more →

Do you know Tucker Cholvin?
Maybe you do – when he was 16, Tucker discovered the wonders of the TeenTix Pass. Tucker used TeenTix to see art all over Seattle – from the Pacific Northwest Ballet, to On the Boards, to the Seattle Art Museum. In his words “you name it - I went there using TeenTix.”
Tucker also hung around TeenTix HQ all the time. He was on the Teen Steering Committee (the precursor to The New Guard) AND he...Read more →

Recommendations from The New Guard: Teen Arts Leadership Society!
Happy Spring! I’m Katherine and I’m back with more recommendations from The New Guard, TeenTix’s youth leadership board. During March, we saw many different plays, films, and art exhibits. Some of our personal favorites were the Moisture Festival, SIFF movies, and Dry Powder at Seattle Rep (which is still running!). What did you see in March?
This month, we have three main recommendations. Firstly, the amazing Terracotta...Read more →

PNB is gracing TeenTix members with TWO CHANCES (!!) to see The Nutcracker with your TeenTix pass, BOTH on Wednesday, December 28th, 2017!
As all you old school TeenTix-ers know, Pacific Northwest Ballet's wildly popular Nutcracker ballet is the only PNB show all year that is NOT TeenTix eligible. However, because they <3 us so much, PNB always puts aside a little stash of TeenTix tickets for one Nutcracker performance each year. It is an amazing, annual tradition that draws teens from far and wide. You won't want to miss it.
This year, PNB is holding TeenTix...Read more →

TeenTix New Guardian April K. on meeting Maestro Ludovic Morlot: "I literally saw my soul depart my body"
Throughout my years in both middle and high school, I have tried to discover my various passions, my favorite subjects, all in search for a dream I wanted to pursue (that will earn me the most money).
During this time of constant change, I have kept one thing exactly the same: music.
I took regular lessons and participated in my local youth symphony, and as my love for the music grew, my participation gradually increased...Read more →
Even in the category of those with a proclivity towards the arts, every young person that decides to sign up for TeenTix has a different experience.
Of course, I’m biased. I’m a TeenTix devotee.
I moved to Seattle when I was 14 and, on recommendation from a family friend, joined TeenTix. I applied for The New Guard, TeenTix’s board of teenagers that keeps the organization accountable to the community it is supposed to be...Read more →
