Cancellations accepted ONLY in the event of unforeseen school closings due to weather or all field trips cancelled by Board of Education. If cancellation is necessary you will have your choice of rescheduling or a full refund. Upon approval of cancellation of a reservation, you will receive a confirmation of cancellation email.
What is your Inclement Weather policy?
Policy for school delays or closings related to weather or other unforeseen circumstances –
Please go to our website www.ArtsOnStage.org after 6:30 a.m. on the morning of your scheduled show date for updated information regarding weather delays, cancellations, etc., . (Since schools come from many districts to see our shows, there are many variables involved in making these decisions.)
If a show is cancelled, we will make every effort to reschedule the production for another day. Please give us time to work out the details and we will contact you as soon as possible.
If your school (any system) is unable to attend a scheduled show due to delayed openings or closings you will have your option of rescheduling for another date, another show or having your monies refunded.
It is for these reasons that we ask for a teachers home phone number on our registration form. If the weather is questionable, we may need to contact a teacher from your school the night before or the morning of a scheduled program. The home phone number will be used in emergency situations only.
We pride ourselves in working with each individual school and teacher to meet their needs. It is never our intention to take your money for a show you don’t get to see. We understand that sometimes “things happen.” However, you must also understand that we are a non-profit organization and must have your presence if the show is to go on.
Can the general public come to a show?
Yes! Everyone is welcome.
What happens when I miss a performance?
Tickets for missed performances are not exchangeable or refundable.
Can I get a refund for unused tickets? Can I get a refund for a student that is absent?
We can not issue refunds, credits or exchanges for seats that go unused for absents or illness.

We will do our best to seat you regardless of how late you are, however, please know that this can be distracting to the actors and other patrons.

How far in advance should I make a reservation?
