Book a Group and Save!

Visiting The Old Globe in Balboa Park is always a treat, but it’s even better with friends! Celebrate a special occasion, build office morale with your colleagues, or bring literature alive for your students with the magic of live theatre!

At the Globe, groups of 10 or more get priority seating, convenient payment terms, and special group discounts—and they don’t pay a dime in ticket fees!

We Make it Easy!

  1. Select your show.
  2. Contact Group Sales Manager Cristal Salow by email or by calling (619) 238-0043 x2408. She will hold the best seats available and work out payment terms. Phone hours are Tuesday - Friday 12:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. and Saturday 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
  3. Get your group of 10 or more together (15 for The Grinch). Bring 15 or more and your ticket is free!**
  4. Sit back, enjoy the show, and enjoy the compliments as your group members congratulate you on a great event.

Want to bring a group, but don’t like collecting money from friends and family? Our Ensemble program may be for you.
