How can I purchase tickets?     Tickets are available online through our ticketing website.

Will my tickets be mailed to me?     No. While you will receive a confirmation email after your purchase, tickets will not be mailed, but will be held at the Box Office and will be available one hour prior to the performance.

Are there assigned seats?     All of our performances are General Admission, so there are no assigned seats. If, however, you have specific seating needs, please contact Joanna Hoch, Events Coordinator, at at least 72 hours prior to the performance to work on accomodations.

Can I pick my tickets up in advance?     Unfortunately, no. Feel free to print the confirmation email as proof of purchase, but your name will be on a Will Call list at the Box Office one hour prior to the performance.

How early should I arrive prior to the performance?     If you have not purchased tickets in advance, it is recommended that you arrive approximately 1/2 hour prior to the performance to ensure enough time to purchase the tickets and find seats.

Are food and drinks allowed in TheatreLab?     Yes, but please note that there are only vending machines in the Arts Complex, so coffee, tea, and other specific snacks would need to be purchased prior to arrival.

Is there late seating?     Unfortunately not. Due to the intimate nature of TheatreLab, in conjunction with lighting limitations, we are unable to seat patrons who arrive after the doors have closed. Late arrivals are more than welcome to wait until intermission, if there is one, so they can see the second part of the performance.

Something came up and I can no longer attend the performance. Can I get a refund?     Unfortunately, we have a no exchange and no refund policy. Only our season subscribers have the ability to change performances. If you would like more information on becoming a subscriber, please contact Joanna Hoch, Events Coordinator, at
