Still wanting to purchase tickets for a certain night? There will be a very limited number of tickets available at the door for each show. Tickets will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. Once those tickets are sold, you can add your name to our Stand-by list at the ticket counter. Please see our Stand-by Ticket Policy below for further details.

Stand-by Ticket Policy

For every production, we set aside several tickets for each performance that cannot be reserved. These are to help accommodate administrative requests as well as patrons who decide to come see the show at the last minute. 

Additionally, for every production, we ALWAYS have no-shows. These are individuals who have reserved tickets but, for some reason, they either choose not to come or don't use all the tickets they reserved.

We release those tickets five minutes before curtain.

How do you get one of these tickets?

  • Arrive at the performance venue no later than 30 minutes prior to curtain.
  • Ask to be added to the STAND-BY LIST. Give your name and the number of tickets you are requesting.
  • We will call your name in the order received, as tickets become available.
  • Remember, there is no guarantee that we can accommodate everyone on the stand-by list.

However, we would rather fill every seat than leave some empty!

We hope to see you soon!
