HPL at Hartford Stage

Hartford Public Library and Hartford Stage have a partnership that makes free theater tickets available to library cardholders, allows Neighborhood Ambassadors from Hartford neighborhoods to see live theater and bring others with them to shows, and creates a mini-library at the theater of show-related books that can be checked out with an HPL library card.

Teen Musical: Spongebob the Musical tickets available for performances on August 11 and 12 while supplie last. 

Free Theater Tickets

With your library card, you can check out a pair of tickets to every show at Hartford Stage. The 2022-2023 Hartford Stage season has ended. Please check back in the fall for information on tickets for the 2023-2024 season.

Neighborhood Ambassadors Program--On hold 

The Hartford Stage Neighborhood Ambassador Program is not running at this time.

Neighborhood Ambassadors join members of the Hartford community in conversation about the shows at Hartford Stage and how those themes directly intersect with life in our city. Ambassadors must be inquisitive and enthusiastic about Hartford. They do not have to be avid theatre-goers or even have ever gone to the theatre. Ambassadors will join together to have a casual dinner and conversation at Hartford Stage prior to attend a minimum of four shows during the season. In addition to attending the shows, Ambassadors will be invited to special backstage tours and production-related events to learn more about how theatre is made.
