Washington Hall Ticketed Performances
Unless a performance is listed on this website (e.g. Shakespeare at Notre Dame), the center does not ticket Washington Hall events. As the vast majority of Washington Hall performances are run by student clubs and organizations, those groups are responsible for ticketing their own events. Some tickets for performances may be reserved and/or purchased through the Student Activities Office at the LaFortune Student Center.
