Credit cards online, cash at the door. Early tickets are the best, just $12. It’s $15 at the door.
Sponsored comps available (except for the CJM show) for those who can’t afford the show right now, just get in touch: email@example.com. Yarn sells Patron tickets to back these. Performers are paid. I’m letting you know because that’s not always the case at comedy and storytelling shows. It’s important.
Many thanks to the ExCappa Foundation for sponsoring Yarn’s venue costs and supporting women artists.
