This will allow your guests to order tickets for a pre-determined show date at the regular ticket price (date restrictions and service fees may apply). Every ticket purchased with your promo code will earn your group $3.00 – bring us 100 guests and you could raise $300!

Option Two: The More You Sell, The More You Earn!

With this option, you will pre-purchase a block of tickets to a show at The Second City for as low as $16/ticket with your resale price determining your profit. This method enables you to sell tickets at your discretion and keep track of your own RSVP list.

Option Three:  Your Own Private Show!

Your organization is invited to buy out our show and theatre for a private performance with the option of a pre- or post-show reception. From there, you can sell your tickets to your guests at whatever price you choose. Rates for this option vary by the day of the week and availability. This offer is available for daytime showings as well.

Pre-Show Reception

Add a pre-show reception right here at The Second City to increase interest and really customize your event.
