Theater & Dance Ticket Office
Thank you for reading some of our ticket guidelines and venue policies:
- BOX OFFICE HOURS AND LOCATIONS. 10:00 am - 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The box office has two locations: the Associated Student Ticket Office located near the UCen and the Ticket Office located across from the Hatlen Theater.
- ALL SALES ARE FINAL. There are no refunds, exchanges, or cancellations on ticket orders. Double check your tickets at time of purchase at the Ticket Office (or online before sale is complete) for discrepancies.
- CANCELLATIONS. If a performance is cancelled, the department will accept tickets purchased for that performance as credit toward a remaining performance of the same production. Once notified of a cancellation, please see a ticket office cashier to arrange for this in advance.
- LATE PURCHASES. If the online option for ticket sales for a specific performance is no longer available, there still may be tickets available for purchase at the venue starting one hour prior to curtain.
- VENUE OPENING. The venues usually open one half hour prior to the curtain for the performance, and all seating is general admission.
- NO LATE SEATING. Because of the intimacy of the venue, there is no late seating in the Performing Arts Theatre. Please plan ample time to find parking pay for the permit, locate the theater, and choose your seats. Patrons leaving the Performing Arts Theater during a performance will not be readmitted until an intermission. Late seating in other venues is at the discretion of the appropriate departmental representative.
- CHILDREN. The department asks that each child, regardless of age, have a ticket and be able to sit in a seat. The department's performances are often unsuitable for children.
- ACCESSIBILITY. We want everyone to enjoy the performance. Please call the Ticket Office (805.893.7221 or 805.893.3022) to ask questions about wheelchair seating, special needs seating, and assisted listening systems.
For your convenience, the online system accepts Visa and Mastercard.
