The „Semesterticket Mainfranken Theater“ theatre pass gives students who are enrolled in a programme at a higher education institution in Würzburg free access to performances at Mainfranken Theater Würzburg. Does this mean that students get free admission to any performance? Almost.
The only project of its kind in Bavaria
The „Semesterticket Mainfranken Theater“ theatre pass is a joint project of Mainfranken Theater Würzburg and the Studentenwerk Würzburg. It was launched in October 2018 and has an initial lifetime of two years.
Students who are enrolled in a programme at the Technical University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt (THWS), the University of Music Würzburg, or the University of Würzburg get admission to performances at the Mainfranken Theater without having to buy a ticket (excludes up to ten special performances per season, for example the „Italian Night“, charity events, or guest performances at other events such as the Mozart Festival or the Hafensommer Festival).
Seats set aside for students
At least 5% of seats for each performance (Großes Haus stage: 38 seats, Kammer stage: 5 seats) are set aside for students until five calendar days prior to the date of the performance in question.
Book and collect your tickets
Each student can book up to four tickets, and bookings can be made up to four weeks prior to the date of the performance in question. Students must collect the booked tickets in person and no later than on the first day after the date of booking on which the theatre box office is open. When they collect their tickets, students will be asked to present their student ID card. Mainfranken Theater Würzburg no longer offers subsidised tickets for holders of the Erstsemesterticket.
Who pays for the pass?
The Studentenwerk fee charged to students who are enrolled in a programme at a higher education institution in Würzburg will be raised by €2 per semester (as of the winter semester 2019/20) to pay for the „Semesterticket Mainfranken Theater“ theatre pass. The Studentenwerk fee charged to those students for the summer semester 2019 will be raised by €4 to pay for the theatre pass for the winter semester 2018/19 and the summer semester 2019.
