Military and First Responder Days
We appreciate all the selfless heroes in our community who put their lives on the line for people they don’t even know. To celebrate them, active or retired members of the military and first responders with I.D. pay $5 per ticket for their entire party for these designated 2 p.m. performances.
American Sign Language Interpreter Performances
The Magik Theatre is joined by Robert Cardoza, the San Antonio theatre community’s primary sign language interpreter, to offer one performance of each production with an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter.
The Magik Theatre offers sensory-friendly performances for patrons on the autism spectrum or with other cognitive disabilities. During a sensory-friendly performance, house lights are kept on, sound levels are lower, audience members are free to talk and leave their seats during the performance, a designated quiet area is provided, outside snacks are permitted, and audience numbers are kept smaller, to offer an experience that will be both enjoyable and comfortable.

X-cellerated Theatre offers rehabilitative theatre arts mentorship and skills training to juvenile offenders, with the goal of reducing recidivism among program graduates. Participants work closely with Magik Theatre mentors, who give intensive, hands-on instruction in theatre arts skills such as idea development, writing, script reading, improvisation, acting theory, theatre vocabulary, and technical theatre, while they write and rehearse an original production to perform on stage at The Magik Theatre.
In addition to theatre arts training, Magik mentors also work with residents to develop important life and social skills, such as conflict resolution and anger management. Many of the young offenders in the program come from different economic, ethnic, and social backgrounds – they are often members of rival gangs – and must learn to put aside these conflicts in order to come together as a cohesive troupe. Through team-building exercises, they learn to positively interact with each other, trust one another, and work together to achieve common goals, while looking inward to gain a better understanding of where they have been, where they are now, and where they hope to be in the future.
