Subscription Information

Subscriptions are available from the time the season is announced in April through Friday, September 21. UMS offers a range of subscription options, including genre-based packages and the popular Series:You, a choose-your-own package.

Subscription seat requests are filled in the order in which they are received. Order early to guarantee the best seats before tickets go on sale to the general public.

UMS donors are given seating priority for upgrades and new series when orders are received by Friday, June 1, 2018. Tickets will be mailed in mid- to late-July. Please be sure that you have alerted the Ticket Office if you would like tickets to be sent to a different address or held at the Ticket Office for pick-up.

There is a $10 service charge for all subscription orders.

Subscribers receive great perks including:

Access to the best seats at the best prices.

Subscribers get first crack at the best seats in the house at the lowest prices of the year.

Free ticket exchanges.

We know that planning ahead isn’t always a sure bet, so we offer subscribers fee free exchanges up to 48 hours before a performance. The value of the tickets may be applied to another performance or will be held as UMS Credit until the end of the 2018-19 season.


When you subscribe, you’ll receive up to 25% off single ticket prices.

Installment billing.

Your order of $300 or more placed by Friday, June 30 qualifies you for installment billing (credit card only, charged in two equal installments: when the order is received and after July 10).

Free parking.

Order at least 8 events by Friday, June 29 and receive free parking in the Power Center structure (Fletcher Street), a close walk to most performance venues. Be sure to check the box on the order form if you wish to take advantage of this offer as parking passes are not automatically included. Note that U-M parking structures, including the Fletcher Street structure, may not be open for Michigan Theater performances.

The opportunity order extra tickets to any event in the season now.

As part of your subscription package, you can add on tickets for any event in the season for friends and family who may wish to join you.

New This Year!

Subscribers enjoy discounted tickets all year long. When purchasing additional tickets throughout the year, you’ll receive a 10% discount off the current ticket price. Standard processing fees apply.


And in addition to these tangible perks, subscribers also enjoy:

Personal Fulfillment.

Let’s be honest — it’s hard to find those moments of personal escape, and sometimes we have to schedule them into our lives. UMS takes you to a place where the imagination is thriving, and a UMS series allows you to invest in yourself while supporting the quality of life in our community.

Building Relationships.

When you attend with family or friends, you create memories with people who are important to you, whether you join up for dinner before or meet up at the performance. And even if you attend alone, you can build lasting friendships with others who love the arts.


We hope you’ll take a chance and discover something new this year — an artist you’ve never heard of, an art form you’ve never experienced, a hands-on experience through our highly-lauded education programs…With UMS, you can count on unexpected moments that will stay with you for a lifetime.
