Other MYSTERIOUS Ways to GET FREE TIX…

===>Our SIGN-INTERPRETED section still has seats available for those in need of an interpreter! See below for details on how to reserve tickets for this section only.

HOLY MOLY People! The general admission FREE TICKETS for the January 23rd show were obliterated in just over an HOUR!!! WOWZEE.

BUT WAIT!!! If you missed out…we will ping people with reservations in a week or so to make sure they can still come to the show for really reals…and we will be releasing any available tickets for people who cancel through the next weeks until the show. IN ADDITION…in the next week or so we’ll announce an exciting way to win VIP tickets to the Back Fence show (um, this means you get let in before everyone else, no rock star party…sorry) and to Portland Center Stage’s stunning production of  THE NORTH PLAN

Follow us on twitter: @backfencepdx, Portland Center Stage: @pcsghost and LIKE us on Facebook so you’ll be sure to be apprised of current information!

To reserve space for these tickets, please email: events@backfencepdx.com with your first/last namenumber of people in your party, AND “Tickets for Interpreter Section” in the subject header. There are a limited number of tickets available for this section and reservations must be made by January 9th, midnight. After that time they will be released to the general public.
