Academy Award nominees don't usually come cheap, but "Boys Don't Cry" star Chloe Sevigny will, for any high school students with a fiver. Sevigny's production of What the Butler Saw is just one of the shows available after Sept. 22 through the High Five program, which enables students to purchase tickets to Off-Broadway shows for a mere $5.

Some of the productions available this fall are Romulus Linney's A Lesson Before Dying, Bill Irwin in Samuel Beckett's Texts for Nothing, La Boheme, The Cradle Will Rock, Richard II and Why We Don't Bomb the Amish.

Not only do High 5's discounts run on the weekend performances, but if high-schoolers want to see a show on a school night, the $5 rate buys two tickets for the teen and a guest.

Other discounts available include ballet, contemporary dance, museums, opera and symphony orchestras.

High 5's free Fall Catalog, published in Spanish and English, can be picked up at participating Ticketmaster outlets, N.Y.'s public libraries and Coliseum Books (Broadway at 57th Street). The Catalog can also be viewed on-line at www.high5tix.org, or call (212) 445 8587. -- By Christine Ehren
