TDF Veterans Theatregoing Program

Serving those who served

TDF Veterans Theatregoing Program provides tickets at no cost to New York City’s former servicemen and women of all ages who have served in any branch of the armed forces and reside in one of the five boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens or Staten Island.  Theatre tickets are limited and distributed through partnering veterans groups throughout the city. The program also offers complimentary TDF memberships to participating veterans. 

A group of people are sitting in multiple rows of a theatre. Most of them are looking at the camera and smiling. One man is showing thumbs up.

Funding for this program is provided by the New York City Council with special thanks to Councilman Chaim Deutsch, Chair of the Committee on Veterans.
