Membership FAQ

How do I get a ticket to a show?

 

Super Secret Arts doesn’t have tickets the way most live arts producers do. We’re built on a membership model. It’s essentially Netflix for live performance.

 

To come to a Super Secret Arts show, you either purchase a membership and then reserve a seat (for free), or come as a one-off guest of an existing member. Membership gives you unlimited, free access to all the shows happening on a monthly basis, space permitting. It’s like a $25 ticket that gets you in all month long. Going forward, that’s about 25 shows a month. It also gives you the ability to bring guests for $15/person to any of those shows.

 

Beginning in April, that membership will also entitle you to access to an array of digital offerings, including virtual reality versions of our live shows, exclusive video and audio content, and digital-only installations.

 

Does my membership auto-renew?

 

Yes, on a monthly basis, for the same rate of $25.

 

How do I cancel my membership?

 

Pause your membership first! Go to 'your account' and click 'join new plan'. Select 'Super Secret Membership Pause' - this plan is free, and keeps you in our community until you are able to attend again.  If you prefer to cancel, you can do so from inside 'your account'.

 

Do I have to sign up in advance? Or can I just show up and buy a membership at the box office?

 

It helps us streamline the process if you do sign up and reserve seats in advance, but you can absolutely sign up (and purchase seats for any guests) when you arrive at the venue. QR codes linking to the sign-up page are prominently displayed in the lobby and entrance foyer. Simply scan the code, sign up, and show your confirmation email to the staff member at the door.

 

Can I buy a ticket for a guest at the door?

 

Yes, you can buy access for guests for $15/person at the door, whether you bought your membership ahead of time, or at the venue. We accept Venmo, cash, and credit cards.

I just want to come to one show. Can I just buy a single ticket?

 

If you only want to come to a single, specific show, you have two options: 1) You could go with someone that is a member as a guest of theirs for $15, with no further obligation on your part or 2) we have a limited number of single tickets available at the door ($30 for repertory programming, $39 for mainstage shows).

 

Ok I’m a member- what does this $25 monthly subscription give me?

 

Your membership gives you unlimited, free access to all of the shows happening in our Gowanus venue, space-permitting. Going forward, that’s about 25 shows a month. It also gives you the ability to bring guests for $15/person to any of those shows.

 

Beginning in Q1 of 2022, that membership will also entitle you to access to an array of digital offerings, including virtual reality versions of our live shows, exclusive video and audio content, and digital-only installations.

 

Where do the shows happen?

 

Currently, all shows happen at our Gowanus venue on the second floor of 400 3rd Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215. We’re a short walk from 4th and 9th FGR, and the B103 stops right outside our door. We’re around the corner from the Gowanus Whole Foods, if that helps.

What are your COVID policies?

 

We want everyone to be safe and stay healthy as we all traverse what is hopefully the tail end of the pandemic. We require proof of vaccination and a matching photo ID for entrance to any of our shows and events. We encourage mask wearing while not actively eating or drinking.

This Soil, These Seeds...

Ahh the mother-daughter relationship. If you’re a mother or a daughter (or both) and just cringed, then perhaps you need a therapist. Or maybe you need something that has yet to be discovered. Maybe you don’t know. Need can reach through generations. You could be mistaking your need for that of your great-great-grandmother’s need.  Infused with music, movement, and poetry, in This Soil, These Seeds… a drama therapist journeys to uncover the roots of three strangers whose mother-daughter issues are buried deeper than seeds under soil. But the strangers find themselves in an unexpected multigenerational family intervention.

She has written, performed, and produced four one-woman shows, and has performed in theatres and festivals in NYC for over ten years. Her theatre credits include As You Like It (FSU Conservatory), Sweat (Asolo Rep.), Corey &Vanessa (The Tank), The Niceties (Urbanite), Black Footnotes (Nuyorican Poets Café), and Adventures of Kieron & Jade (Bridge Street Theatre). Film credits include Beneath the Sound, Drowning Above Water, How Does That Make You Feel?, and The Old Man and The Fish. She is the co-found of BARE, an interdisciplinary theatre and film-based organization with a focus on transformative works and empowering artists. She is thankful for her husband, Garrett, and their families—both here and in Heaven—whose love and support continue to be a positive motivating force in her life. www.bonitajackson.com.

 

I dedicate This Soil, These Seeds… to my father, Terry Joe Neal Jackson, who planted the best seeds within me. “Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.” - Psalm 126:5
