NowPlayingUtah is an initiative of the Utah Arts & Cultural Coalition (UACC). Development is guided by our Board of Directors, our staff and the greater Utah arts and cultural community.

How It Started

Free Night is a national program currently supported by the LA STAGE Alliance, which has been dedicated to building awareness, appreciation and support for the performing arts since 1975.

Free Night of Theater was originally created by Theater Communications Group (TCG), the national organization for the American Theatre.

Introducing Free Night of Art!

Explore the landscape of performing arts in Utah during Arts & Humanities month, October 1-31, 2019.

We are incredibly excited to announce the expansion of Now Playing Utah’s Free Night of Theatre program to Free Night of ART! Previously, only theaters were invited to donate tickets for Free Night. This was a great way for audiences to try new theaters. This year, we are expanding this program to include ALL artforms occurring during the month of October 2019.

Beginning September 1st, click ENTER TO WIN TICKETS at the top of the screen and create your profile. Then you'll see all the experiences that Utah arts organizations have made available to Free Night patrons. Select the top two performances/experiences that you'd like to see, and enter for your chance to win up to two pairs of tickets or admission vouchers! When choosing the experiences for which you'd like to win tickets or vouchers to, please keep in mind that your chances of winning will increase if you choose organizations which you've never been to previously.

You can return to edit your entry at any time (and see if more experiences have been offered). When the lottery entry window closes on September 15th, all entries will be finalized. On September 22nd, you will receive an email letting you know if you've won tickets or not. It's that easy!

Please note: Free Night is intended to give audiences an opportunity to experience new arts organizations - so please select experiences with organizations which you haven't visited previously. There are plenty to choose from!

No purchase or payment of any kind is necessary to enter to win tickets through Free Night.
