Our skilled box office staff are here to help you with all of your ticketing needs.

The box office accepts cash, and all major credit cards.
Please be aware that there are no refunds or exchanges for ticket purchases. If a show has more than one performance, we are happy to move your tickets from one performance to another at no charge. We may also be able move tickets within the theater if you need to change your seat to a different location on our seating chart.
Once tickets are purchased your receipt will be emailed directly to the email associated with your account. For most events you have the option of choosing e-tickets or traditional will-call printed tickets. Your e-tickets will come in a separate email than your receipt. You can either print these tickets at home and bring them with you to the show, or simply open your email on your phone once you arrive so that our ushers can scan the barcode(s) from your phone.
Will-call tickets can be picked up at the box office within a few hours of purchase (during business hours) or immediately before the event. We encourage patrons to collect their tickets in advance to avoid lines that may form prior to a show. Please plan to present your photo ID or a receipt of your purchase.
For events not hosted at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater but ticketed through its box office tickets are typically available for pickup at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater box office until a few hours prior to the event. Any tickets remaining in will-call at that point will be available at the door of the venue prior to the event. Check the specific event page for instructions.
Tickets cannot be mailed.
