Access Programs – Making Live Theatre Affordable For All
Bag&Baggage is committed to making professional live theatre accessible and affordable to all members of our community. We have implemented a wide range of programs to ensure that everyone who wants to attend one of our shows can do so comfortably. If you do not see your concern addressed below, please contact the box office (email@example.com or 503-345-9590 x 1).
The Vault Theater is an ADA-compliant venue, and we generally offer 4 wheelchair spaces in the house for each performance. However, for most events the entire front row of seating is flexible to accommodate wheelchairs, mobility scooters, and/or alternative seating. Wheelchair Space tickets are available online, and our front-of-house staff are always happy to make arrangements to accommodate specific accessibility requests. Please just let us know!
Arts For All
Bag&Baggage is a proud participant in the Arts For All program, which grants individuals enrolled in the Oregon Trail Card or SNAP program up to two tickets for $5 each for any Bag&Baggage Season performance. (This discount cannot be applied to fundraisers, and is sometimes available for special events/co-productions/rentals.) Just contact our box office to reserve your ticket(s) and then bring your Oregon Trail Card (or proof of SNAP enrollment) with you to the box office and purchase your tickets before the show.
Assisted Listening Devices
The Vault Theater has an assisted listening system with 4 personal headsets available for each performance. The devices can be worn around the neck or held, and the volume is controlled by the user. They are available by request at the check-in podium in the lobby.
ASL Interpreted Performances
Bag&Baggage does not currently offer ASL-interpreted performances, but hopes to in future seasons. If you would like to see this service (or an alternative service such as captioned performances) offered on a regular basis, please let us know by contacting the box office at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bag&Baggage has a commitment to military personnel in our community, and we welcome them to our theatre. Visit our Blue Star Theater page to see all the unique benefits and discounts we offer.

PASSPORT Free Ticket Program
Bag&Baggage’s PASSPORT program is a unique educational access project that provides free tickets for any student from a high school, educational district, online academy, tribal school, or registered home school student in Washington, Yamhill, Columbia, or Tillamook counties. Any student can simply show up at the box office prior to a performance, show a valid student ID (or similar) and receive a free ticket to that performance…no questions asked!

Pay What You Will
Each Bag&Baggage Season production begins with a Pay What You Will preview (typically the first Thursday). Tickets are available at the door for as little as $1, preferably purchased with cash. We do not offer PWYW for special events or fundraisers. Check the individual show page for more details.
Work For Art
B&B participates in the Regional Arts and Culture Council’s Work For Art program, where any donor to the Work For Art fund receives 2-for-1 tickets to any B&B Season performance using their Work For Art card. Details on the program can be found online at www.racc.org and participants can receive the 2-for-1 ticket discount code by contacting our box office at email@example.com.
10 @ $10
Do you need a more affordable option, but don’t see a ticket discount listed here that applies to you? Not to worry! Each regular B&B Season performance has 10 tickets available at $10 each. These are on a first-come, first-served basis, and are available online, via the box office, or at the door – no questions asked!
