There are four different PAM Passes available: the 3-show pass allows you to see three shows for a total of $82, which is 22% off the total value. The 4-show pass gives you tickets to four shows for $106, or 24% off. The 5-show pass buys you admission to five shows for $132, or 25% off. There is also a full PAM pass, which will grant you admission to one performance each of all eleven shows for $220--a total of 43% off the list price. The PAM Pass can only be used to see three distinct shows--you cannot use it to see multiple performances of the same show or to buy multiple tickets of the same performance
