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 →

Please note - while we are workign to fix this we have had to TEMPORARILY stop all...Read more →

Recommendation from The New Guard: Teen Arts Leadership Society
Hey TeenTix members! It’s Katherine and I’m bringing you more recommendations from The New Guard, TeenTix’s Arts Leadership Society.
During April, we saw a TON of different shows and went to many events. Our favorites were Here Lies Love (which is still playing!) at Seattle Rep, The Secret Garden at 5th Ave, and Ballet on Broadway at PNB. Personally, I saw The Fog Machine Play at *new partner* Copious Love Productions (which...Read more →
Ella Mahler, our next GiveBig SUPERSTAR is a bit of a chameleon. She is part artist (dancer+choreographer+performer), part fundraiser and arts advocate at The Ostara Group, part keen art consumer, and part TeenTix Advisory Council member. Ella is basically living the art nerd dream.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 →
Every year, we here at TeenTix get SO MANY REQUESTS from arts-presenting organizations to join our multi-faceted roster. TeenTix staff vets them, and The New Guard decide whether they're relevant to teen arts-going wants/needs/desires.Read more →

We totally get it - transportation can be hard to navigate, especially at night. So much so that it can even prevent teens from getting to see the cool stuff our city has to offer. We also know that transportation to and from the art you want to see has to be parent AND teen approved.
SO, check this out: Uber has just launched a new Teen Account program where teens can have their own account that connects to an...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 Guard member Caroline H. spends the day at ACT Theatre
All we see on stage when we go to see a play are the actors and the set pieces. We notice the lights and sound, and maybe the tech crew, but there are so many parts to running a fully-functioning theater that people may not realize. I considered myself pretty knowledgeable about all things theater, but I still had a lot to learn on my mini-mentorship with Robert Hankin, the Associate Director of Development at ACT Theatre. He...Read more →
