What is your policy on discounts/refunds/exchanges?

All ticket sales are final. All discounts are based on availability and subject to change without notice. However, in certain cases if you do need to exchange your tickets to another performance date of the same show, it is $10/ticket plus any difference in ticket price. Subscribers never pay fees to exchange their tickets, unless they miss their show. The only exception is Preview Week subscribers, who pay $10/ticket to move from Preview performances to the Regular run. Please call the box office for all exchange concerns–no exchanges can be made online. Subscribers may request a ticket exchange online.

What happens if it snows? Do you ever cancel performances? How would I know if a performance has been cancelled?

Although we seldom cancel performances, it does sometimes happen in extreme circumstances. If a performance is cancelled, the box office will reach out to each patron booked into the performance via phone and/or e-mail and offer alternative options. We will also always post cancellations on our website and social media. If you cannot make a performance due to a weather related issue, you can always call the box office and we will do our best to accommodate you.
