- What is your cancellation policy?
Once payment is made on a group order, it is a final sale. No refunds, exchanges, or cancellations will be permitted. If a cancellation is made before payment is processed and also prior to the 6/8 week deadline, no penalty will be incurred.
- Do I need to make a deposit?
No deposit payment is required. Seats will be held for no charge until your ticket order's payment deadline (either 6 weeks or 8 weeks before the performance). If the initial ticket order is made within the 6 or 8 week deadline, payment in full will be due at the time of reservation.
- Do you give out any comps with group orders?
We do not provide comps with group orders.

- What if our numbers grow from our initial reservation?
As long as there are tickets available we'll happily add tickets to your order. Please note that additional tickets will be subject to any ticket price increases made since the initial order was placed.
- Can I return any tickets I failed to sell for a refund?
No, once you provide payment it is a final sale. No refunds, exchanges, or cancellations will be permitted.
- What if there is a snowstorm and we can't make the trip?
During inclement weather, please allow extra travel time, as the Theatre does not cancel or delay performances due to weather.
- I have a large group. Do you have any suggestions for keeping track of our seating assignments?
Yes! Your tickets will be mailed with a group tracking form on which you can fill in the full name and seat location for each group member. If you plan to distribute tickets to group members in advance of the performance date, you are required to complete this sheet and return it to the Group Sales Coordinator. This form is the only way our ticket office staff will be able to reprint lost/forgotten tickets at the window on the day of the show. This form also allows us to quickly and quietly pull someone out of the theatre in case of an emergency. The Group Tracking Form can be downloaded and printed from the "Group Resorces" box located on the right-hand side of the Group Sales page within the "Tickets" tab above.
- Is there an age minimum to attend a performance?
