REGISTRATION & TICKETING When can I register and how are tickets distributed? We have implemented new registration practices this year. These procedures are intended to give school groups priority access to our matinees and ensure higher attendance at the performances by reducing the number of no-shows. Schools (state-licensed public, charter and private) have priority registration for ticket requests. Registrations for the all matinees will open for schools September 1, 2018.  All School registrations will be reviewed for eligibility. If we determine your request to be ineligible as a School, your registration will be cancelled and we will notify you via email of this action. All other ticket types (homeschool, senior groups, individuals) will become avialableas follows: Events occuring between October - December 2018 will go onsale as of Sept. 19, 2018. Events occurring January - May 2019 will go onsale as of December 1, 2018. Tickets are reserved for all these ticket types, so will be available effective the on-sale date. Available ticket for "all other ticket types" may increase, based upon advance school group registrations. Can I register for multiple events in the series at one time? Schools, yes; other ticket types, no. Schools may register for all of the matinees that are open to registration; however, each matinee requires a separate registration. Other ticket types can only register for a matinee four (4) weeks prior to the matinee's date.  My school group is larger than 100 attendees, but ticket requests are capped at 100. What do we do? You must complete two registration requests.Place your initial request for 100. Later in the registration process you will be asked for the total number of tickets needed for your group, if greater than 100.  Enter the total number of tickets needed in that space. Once you have completed the registration, you will need to place a second registration for the remaining balance of your group. You will need to fill out all the requested information, which is minor inconvenience, but it is efficient in the long run. What if I don't
