Special Passes are a unique way to experience the best of VIIF!

This year we are happy to offer two types of unique pass that represent a way to get more involved with VIIF and have a unique experience at the festival. Both of our special passes include the same features as our VIP Evening Pass, but add even more experiences and access to shows.

Our Backstage Pass is an exclusive way to experience VIIF that includes backstage access to the show where you may meet performers before showtime, get a personalized tour of the show, venue, and history of VIIF, along with special backstage seating only available to this package. Best of all, the Backstage Pass is for two, so you can share this exclusive experience with a friend, or someone special!

The “Your Suggestion” package is a unique way of experiencing VIIF. Only available for the Showcase Spectacular, VIIF Ensemble, and Shortform Showdown, “Your Suggestion” pass holders will be specifically selected by the director of each show, recognized on stage, and then asked to provide a suggestion to the ensemble to help inspire the next piece.

Only ONE “Your Suggestion” package is available for each of the above shows and includes tickets for two so that you can share the experience with a friend.
