The best and most established shows appear at the Kennedy Center and include concerts, plays, dances, and operas. In an effort to spread the arts to a wider audience, every day the Kennedy Center hosts the Millenium stage, which offers free events at the Center. Tickets can be purchased sometimes for half-price the day of the show through the cultural-alliance.org website. There are also specially priced tickets for students, groups, and designated residents. There is a shuttle from the Metro that takes patrons to the center or parking is available at the center.
