Phantom Projects Theatre Group Announces PAY WHAT YOU WILL Day

Staff Report

La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts wants no patron to be discouraged over theater prices, so for the 2018 / 2019 season Phantom Projects offers a ‘Pay what You Will’ opportunity.

No longer will price have to be a factor for any teen, family, or student who wants to be part of a live theater experience. For one day only, on October 13, 2018, from 12pm-4pm, patrons may visit the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts Box Office and pay what they can for any show in the four-show season from Phantom Projects Theatre Group.

“The idea that some may not be able to attend a live performance and be part of the audience because of financial limitations pains me,” commented Producing Artistic Director Steve Cisneros, who created the company at the age of 17 when pricing often limited his theater-going abilities, “We are a non-profit, yes, and ticket sales are crucial, but at the end of the day, the educational element of what we do is far more important. We want to remove any excuse as to why someone can’t be a theatergoer.”
