John and Joan Mullen Center for the Performing Arts

WHAT IS THE BENEFIT TO THE EARLY BIRD SUBSCRIPTION?

Early bird subscribers enjoy 33% off single tickets, first choice of seats and exclusive exchange privileges.

BUT WHAT IF I WANT MY OLD SEATS? 

Given our new home in the Mullen Center for the Performing Arts, our seating configurations for the upcoming year are variable, so we can’t guarantee our seating will be the same as the year progresses. However, we are happy to help select similar seats for you whenever possible. Just let the box office know your accessibility needs and seating preferences.

WHAT DOES IT COST? 

A full price Season Subscription for the 2022-2023 season is $100, however we want to also offer a price that may be more accessible at $60 for Villanova University faculty, staff, students, and MA in Theatre alumni. Early Bird Subscription is $80, saving a total of 33% off the single ticket price.

WHAT SHOWS ARE INCLUDED IN THE SEASON SUBSCRIPTION?

You can use your Season Subscription to attend any performance in the Villanova Theatre Season.

HOW DO I BOOK SEATS WITH A SEASON SUBSCRIPTION?

You can select your dates and the best seats available when you purchase your subscription online. You can also visit or call our box office at 610-519-7474 and we’d be happy to reserve specific seats for you.

WHAT ARE YOUR SAFETY PROTOCOLS?

We are committed to providing a safe environment for our faculty, staff, students, artists, and audiences and will continue to follow national, state, local, and university guidelines. Villanova University has mandated vaccination for our on-campus community, increased the frequency of cleaning and sanitization, and equipped our facilities with MERV-13 filters. At this time, we will recommend masks for all audience members during performances.
