Wheelock Family Theatre is committed to providing an inclusive environment. The WFT@BU ticketing model includes all price levels in both the orchestra and mezzanine sections. WFT@BU continues to strive to make theater accessible for all and has never turned away a patron for an inability to pay. For more information on discounts, please visit the Discounts and Promotions page here.

Our theatre seats 600 in a comfortable, tiered auditorium. The 21 rows provide intimacy with the actors on stage, and there is excellent visibility, with no obstructions, from all seats. The first 10 rows in the orchestra section are on a slight slope heading down toward the raised stage. The remaining 11 rows (mezzanine section) are similar to a stadium style seating where there is a stair/step between each row. i.e. to get to row AA, you must go up one step, row BB, up two steps, etc.
