FAQ’s about Cancelled Performances (March 16 - August 15, 2020)
What happened to my tickets that were cancelled because of COVID?
Tickets that were cancelled due to COVID were credited to a non-expiring gift card, allowing you to rebook when it’s convenient for you to do so.
Will you honor my season ticket price?
Yes. If you held season tickets with us during our 2019-2020 season, you can add shows* through Freaky Friday into your season ticket package for the same seaon ticket rate. You can also wait to use the dollar amount of your credit towards 2021-2022 season tickets when they become available. Season tickets must be scheduled through the box office. *Some date exclusions apply.
How do I use my credit?
For ease of use, we have added the gift card credit as a payment method in your account. If you have online access set up, select the gift card to pay for your purchase. Additionally, we can access the gift card through the box office and send the redemption information to you as needed.
What if I don’t want to use my credit this year?
No problem! Our gift cards never expire. If you do not want to use your credit this year or next year, you can still use the dollar amount on the gift card towards purchases at any point in the future.
Can I get a refund?
Unfortunately we are not able to offer refunds. We understand that this is a difficult time for everyone. Our theater relies completely on ticket sales. The credit you have received will not expire.
Who can I talk to if I have other questions?
We’re happy to help! Our box office is open Monday through Friday, from noon until 5pm. Please give us a call at 480-497-1181, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
