Kauffman Center Announces New Open Doors Community Tickets Discount

Kansas City, MO – The Kauffman Center continues to provide opportunities for members of the Kansas City community to experience the performing arts by offering a new community discount available to military members, veterans and educators. These discounted tickets are made possible through the Open Doors Community Tickets program.

Military service members and educators will now be able to utilize a 15% ticket discount for Kauffman Center Presents performances. This is one of the Kauffman Center’s many initiatives to make performances affordable for a wide-range of diverse Kansas City populations.

Discounted tickets are available for purchase at the Kauffman Center box office with a valid military or school ID. Community Tickets discounts cannot be used for parking and Dining Experience reservations.

The Kauffman Center offers discounted tickets to students and community organizations as well. Student Rush Tickets and Senior Group Discounts are also available through the Open Doors Community Tickets program.

For a full list of available discounts and additional information, visit or call the Kauffman Center Box Office at (816) 994-7222.


The Kauffman Center Open Doors program connects young people to the arts through three major components:

  • The Open Doors Spotlight on Youth initiative contains several programs that inspire and nurture the next generation of artists, arts patrons, and arts professionals with access to the Kauffman Center’s staff, stages, and resources.
  • The Open Doors Community Tickets program offers access to programming at the Kauffman Center for youth and families through reduced prices or free tickets.
  • The Open Doors Transportation Fund offers funding to schools in the metropolitan area so that bringing students to the Kauffman Center for school matinee performances is more affordable.
