Late Seating

At most events, seating begins thirty minutes prior to the scheduled start time. Latecomers to events will be seated at the discretion of the house manager or ushers at a suitable break in the performance and in a location that is least disruptive to the performance. Late seating is not available for all performances.

If a performance or concert is cancelled, the Audience Services Manager will contact all ticket holders via email and phone when possible. Ticket holders will be allowed to exchange tickets to another performance within the same season. Exchanges must be for tickets of an equal or lesser value. If exchanging to a ticket or event with a higher price, ticket holders must pay the difference. In the event of a cancellation, refunds will be granted as necessary.
