BUYING ONLINE VS. BUYING IN-PERSON

ONLINE:   Due to the high demand of ticket sales for these performances on their on-sale date, our ticketing software company (VENDINI) MAY enact a “crowd control” system.  Once there is a high enough demand, this policy will place you essentially in a line and will inform you of how many patrons are in front of you online.  If you attempt to back out of the transaction you are in, this policy will then move you to the back of the line.  Please remain patient – no patron can move any faster than what the system will allow. Also, given the high demand, you MAY NOT be offered a “pick your own seat” option.  This option is ONLY valid online when the sales demand is BELOW a certain level of demand.  The system will offer you the best seating available (i.e. closest to the stage) for the quantity you have requested.

IN-PERSON:   Please make certain you know many seats you require for each show prior to approaching the counter.  We CANNOT perform exchanges that morning (from 9 AM until 11 AM).  We also ask that you do not use cell phones in line while waiting to make you purchase.  You may NOT ask the box office staff for ticket purchases made online to be printed and picked up on that Saturday UNTIL 11 AM.  Seating availability goes very quickly because online sales are happening at the same time as sales at the box office.
