How To Be In The Studio Audience For Will & Grace Tapings

I will be making updates to this post once I attend a taping of the show.

Will & Grace is another beloved show that is making a come back. For now, the fabulous cast will return to NBC for at least one season. All four of the main cast members will be returning. Would you like to be in the studio audience for Will & Grace tapings? The tapings will take place on the backlot at Universal Studios Hollywood. To attend a taping you won’t need a ticket to the park but you will need to get a ticket in order to be part of the audience. Any day now free tickets will be made available through a website called

will & grace tapings

I follow Audiences Unlimited ( on twitter. On 7/20 they made an announcement that they would be giving out the tickets to the tapings and that the show will be filmed at Universal Studios. So far no taping dates have been released but the tapings should be taking place in August since the show is set to air on NBC in September. Normally shows are filmed much more in advance so the timing is very peculiar on this.

If you’re reading this post you are probably interested in attending a taping. Since the show still has a strong fan base I am sure that once the tickets for the Will & Grace tapings are released they will go fast. I have two helpful hints to help you get tickets. The first is to follow Audiences Unlimited on twitter. The reason I recommend following them on twitter is that they often have contests where you can win “priority tickets”. Unfortunately, the tickets are considered the same as general tickets so they don’t help guarantee that you’ll make it into the taping. However, if you win the tickets you don’t have to deal with trying to get tickets before they sell out.

My second helpful hint to get tickets is to have a ticket order form pulled up on the website before the tickets are released. Typically, tickets are made available 30 days before a taping. That can’t be the case for the Will & Grace tapings for now since the tapings will need to start ASAP. Tickets for shows are posted Monday through Friday between 8am and 8:30am PST.

When you go to the website you can click on the 30 day schedule and then click on any show to pull up an order form. The order form is the one you want to keep refreshing on your screen between 8am to 8:30am. On occasion, tickets will be posted late so don’t freak out if 8:30 comes and still no tickets are posted. Sometimes the tickets don’t get put up until 9am. When the tickets finally become available in the dropbox this is the quickest way to get them.

For popular shows like Will & Grace saving a couple seconds can make it possible to get tickets for your whole party. Please note that you can only request one ticket at a time. If you do not have the contact information for all members of your group put your own address and email in the boxes. I have since learned that it is not required to provide your contact information but I would encourage you to do so because if taping times change you will be notified.

It is best to know ahead of time who you plan to bring with you because you will need to put their name on the ticket. However, in the faq section of the audiences unlimited website it does say that you can email them about changing the name. Just make sure to reach out to them about changing a name more than 24 hours before your taping date. Once your request has been processed you will see your ticket for the taping. If you are on your computer go ahead and print it out. If you are over 18 years of age they will want to see a valid photo id when you check in.

Free parking is almost always offered for the tv show tapings. Your tickets will have the address for check in. Please note that just because you get a ticket does not guarantee that you will make it in the studio audience. The shows are over booked so that they can try and have a full house. I recommend arriving several hours before the check in time to increase your chances of getting inside. Normally phones are not allowed inside the tapings so you might want to bring something to get autographed incase you get a chance to meet the cast after the taping.

Other tips to help you get the most out of your experience:

  • Bring a jacket
    Sound stages are normally very cold so chose your clothing wisely for the taping.
  • Bring snacks
    You are normally given a slice of pizza or a half of a sandwich at a taping but I always need more food than that.
  • Bring a sharpie
    Having a sharpie makes it much easier to get autographs after the taping ends
  • Be prepared to do a lot of waiting
    You will have to wait quite a bit before you get into the taping and will do even more waiting throughout the taping. On average the tapings last around 5 hours.

    I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to write this post and for sharing your knowledge. I live in Australia and am a hardcore W&G fan! I’ll actually be in LA during the first week of September 2017 and I’m frantically and desperately trying to find a way to secure tickets, even just one ticket! I’m going to follow all of your helpful advice and send positive vibes out to the universe. I know it’s a long shot but miracles can happen! Thanks so much again. if you get any more relevant info, I’d be so grateful if you could share it with me. I’m so far away here in Sydney plus we’re in a different time zone so it’s hard to have my finger on the pulse of what’s happening in LA. Thanks again and have a great day :-)
