Our site permits reserving tickets only. You cannot purchase them directly, only reserve them. Reserving helps us inform you if there’s a change in the performance because of weather.
For our mainstage shows, you just reserve your tickets and show up — you can pay cash, check, or credit card on site.
For Lit and other special shows with limited seating, we’ll call you after making your reservation to arrange payment. These shows require pre-payment to secure a seat.

$13 senior citizens/military
$8 Students and Children 6-12 yrs.
