Box Office and Seating Policies

  • LATECOMERS WILL NOT BE SEATED IF ARRIVING AFTER THE SHOW HAS STARTED. Please arrive early and allow plenty of time for parking.
  • Subscribers may reschedule their season ticket reservations if notice is given 24 hours before show time, at no charge.
  • For all other tickets: No refunds are given. Exchanges to another performance of the same show (subject to availability) can be made for a fee of $7.00 per ticket, and must be requested at least 24 hours prior to the performance being exchanged. (No-shows or requests less than 24 hours in advance cannot be exchanged.)
  • The Box Office opens one hour prior to show time.
  • All pre-purchased tickets will be held at “will-call” and may be picked up on the day of the performance after the box office opens.
  • All seating is general admission.


If you’re a season ticket holder, you can reserve tickets by logging into your online account and selecting the dates you’d like to attend, or by calling our box office at (510) 523-1553 and leaving a message for the reservation staff. If calling, please include your full name, your phone number, the date you’d like to attend, and the number of people in your party.
