Best Free Theater Opportunity: The Welcome Experiment

Best Free Theater Opportunity

The Know Theatre has established itself as the Queen City’s “theatrical playground,” and The Welcome Experiment on Wednesdays invites everyone to play — for free. That’s right. Guests can watch the current Know mainstage show at no cost. (For each show, 50 free tickets are available and 50 tickets for just $5 are also available.) In an effort to make live theater accessible to everyone, inspired by a similar program in Minneapolis, the Know began The Welcome Experiment in 2014, and it’s quickly caught on as the best way for students, newbies and those on tight budgets to experience the magic of live theater. The Know Theatre, 1120 Jackson St., Over-the-Rhine, 513-300-5669, knowtheatre.com
