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.

TeenTix New Guardian April K. on meeting Maestro Ludovic Morlot: "I literally saw my soul depart my body"

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 →
