Tickets can be purchased online, by phone or in person. Visit our How to Purchase Tickets Page for more information.
TPAC does charge handling fees for online and phone purchases, as well as credit card purchases at TPAC's Box Office. We are a non-profit organization, so ticketing fees are used to pay for things such as building maintenance, staffing phones, and maintaining our website. Tickets purchased with cash at TPAC's Box Office do not receive any handling fees.
Many shows impose ticket limits as a way to allow as many people as possible to have equal access to seats. This is also done as a deterrent to third party vendors, i.e. scalpers, who may purchase large blocks of seats and then resell them online at an inflated cost. The term "household" refers to any shared information on one or more accounts. This includes, but may not be limited to matching names, mailing and billing addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and credit card numbers. Any households that purchase more than the allowed number of tickets may have their order(s) refunded without notice.
Tickets can be mailed, emailed or picked up at the box office. Tickets delivered by mail carry a $2.00 surcharge and tickets picked at will call 90 minutes prior to show time may carry a $5.00 surcharge. Tickets delivered by email or picked up at the Main Box Office during regular business hours (Monday – Friday, 10:00 A.M-5:00 P.M.) receive no additional charges. A valid photo ID must be presented at the time of pick up.
