HPL at Hartford Stage

Hartford Public Library and Hartford Stage have a partnership that makes free theater tickets available to Hartford residents who are 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.

Neighborhood Ambassadors Program--On hold due to Covid

The Hartford Stage Neighborhood Ambassador Program is not running this season, but we encourage you to complete an application in consideration for next season. Go to

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.
