Free theater shows in New York City

Often a trip to the theater is not so cheap, and this stops many. But, from time to time, there are free performances in New York — and these are not only student productions. In this section of our website you will find useful information about the places and dates of free performances.

It can be both city actions and big rehearsals. It often happens that the spectator himself takes a direct part in the performance, for example, expressing his opinion on the relevant topic. And, of course, free theaters in New York City organize various performances for children that will not only entertain your child, but also contribute to his development.

Check our section “theatres” periodically and enjoy going to the performances for free.
