Sweet Tea Shakespeare offers two ways to pay for our youth programming:

MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION: Our monthly subscription option includes access to all programming throughout the year. A monthly subscription is normally $40, with discounts for military families as part of our Blue Star Theatres program. Early bird enrollees are eligible for an additional introductory discount of $10 per family per month. All program costs are covered in the monthly tuition. Multi-child discounts are also available. Early bird discounts are strictly limited to 10 students.

Monthly Tuition on Patreon. Huge annual value ($500+!)


$40 becomes $480 per year, and pays tuition for one of the members of our young company, Green Tea, as they meet monthly and work on an annual production. These students are the future of Sweet Tea Shakespeare and your support of them is planting seeds for the future of our work.

PAY PER PROGRAM: Participate in any of our programs (camps, production experiences, and workshops) for a standalone fee. Our fee structure is competitive and available on our website at Package and multi-child discounts are available. Enrollment is limited. Simply select your option on our ticketing page or see below! Don’t see what you need? Contact us directly at [email protected].


Full Year Subscription: Normally $40/month
Multiple Family members: Two child $70/month; three child $100/month
Military-affiliated students qualify for a discount of $10 off per month per family.

Discounts per event are available. Contact us for a discount code specific to your situation. And make your single event purchase on our Tickets page.

The benefit to the subscription model is that in addition to Green Tea tuition, each level is eligible for a range of other perks on our monthly platform, Patreon. Green Tea students can come to all Sweet Tea Shakespeare shows for free, so this is a great way for parents and others to bank tickets to attend as well.
