In the Oliver Award-winning musical, Ti Moune, a peasant girl, rescues a wealthy boy from the other side of the island, Daniel, with whom she falls in love. Unbeknownst to Ti Moune, the pompous gods who preside over the island make a bet with one another over which is stronger, love or death, the stakes being Ti Moune's life. When she pursues Daniel, who has returned to his people, Ti Moune is shunned because of her lowly status. Her determination and capacity to love, though, is not enough to win Daniel's heart, and Ti Moune pays the ultimate price; but the gods turn Ti Moune into a tree that grows so strong and so tall, it breaks the wall that separates the societies and ultimately unites them.

Tickets to an individual production may be purchased approximately two weeks before that show opens. Seating availability is often limited, and many shows sell out quickly. Tickets can be ordered with a credit card over the phone by calling (940) 565-2428 or Metro (817) 267-3731 ext. 2428.

The Box Office is located in the RTFP building in the first floor lobby of the University Theatre (room 104). At our box office location, we can accept cash, checks and credit cards.

The box office opens one hour prior to each performance for will-call and to sell any remaining tickets for that performance.
