Volunteer to serve as a docent for whatever type of performance you like such as a theater/museum. An 85 year old friend served as an usher for the local community theater. As such she got to see all the plays produced. She was on a limited income and this was the only way she could enjoy the theater.

This is an excellent idea, and not just for community-theater productions. I saw some truly wonderful productions at my children's HS this way. Colleges and universities should also be open to volunteers.
For several years I belonged to an organization called "The Saints". They would notify us as to which theaters needed volunteers for usher work. At times we were also asked to bring food by well known actors/actresses or drive them to the airport. We were also asked to dress in black slacks, a white blouse and wear a red ribbon tied in a bow around our neck. It was great fun but I think they disbanded this goes back 25-30 years ago!
