Military Discounts

The Folger welcomes US military personnel, spouses and children, as well as US veterans. We greatly appreciate your service to our country.

Folger Theatre

As part of our long-standing commitment to the military personnel in our community we welcome you and your family to our theater, exhibitions, concerts, readings, family programs, and other activities.


Active duty members of the military and dependents can get 50% off of Folger Theatre, Folger Poetry, and PEN/Faulkner tickets through the Blue Star Theatre Program. Folger Consort offers $5 off of the full price of any ticket with a valid military ID. It's easy to use.


First, please visit  What's On to find out what's playing.


Then, contact our Box Office at (202) 544–7077 or visit in person and identify yourself as military personnel to receive your discount.
