College Ambassador Program

The College Ambassador program is a FREE service that provides current college students with special offers, invitations and behind-the-scenes access to Goodman productions.

College Ambassadors

Become a College Ambassador for the Goodman both online and in-person! Goodman’s College Ambassadors are a select group of Chicago area college and university students that help the Goodman team with campus outreach and engagement. They connect students with Goodman productions and programs in new and innovative ways.


College Ambassadors have the following responsibilities:

  • Attend and/or volunteer at College Nights (3 per season)
  • Attend a promotion meeting prior to each College Night (meetings take place over Zoom)
  • Distribute College Night digital and/or print advertising materials to fellow students
  • Document attendance at College Night performances on personal social media channels, tagging Goodman Theatre

College Ambassadors must consistently meet all of the above requirements for the entirety of the Goodman Theatre season in which they participate (September – June)

College Ambassador perks include:

  • A FREE pair of tickets to each College Night throughout the season in which they participate
  • Complimentary tickets to preview nights for most productions throughout the Goodman season in which College Nights are not offered
  • Access to special membership events such as behind-the-scenes panel discussions, tickets to select opening night performances and more
  • Engagement with the wider theater community through Goodman Theatre social media accounts
  • Networking and mentorship opportunities with Goodman Theatre staff
