As part of a commitment to make the performing arts available to everyone in York County, Community ConnectTix expands free and discounted ticket access to those for whom the price of a ticket is a barrier. During the 2022-2023 season, The Appell Center donated over 550 tickets to 30 local 501(c)(3) organizations through the Community ConnecTix program.

The Appell Center for the Performing Arts invites nonprofit organizations to apply for blocks of tickets for groups they serve. Up to 20 tickets can be requested for select performances. Applicants who would like to be considered for tickets will be placed on a waiting list and contacted as they become available.
