What is your cancellation policy?
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 via 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 cell 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 cell 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 absences or illness.
What happens if I cannot pay by the due date?
If you think your payment will be late or if your school district's policy does not permit payment by our due date, you must contact our office at 410.252.8717 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request an extension. Extensions must be requested PRIOR to your payment due date which is indicated on your invoice.
FAILURE TO SUBMIT PAYMENT DOES NOT ABSOLVE FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR RESERVATION nor does it result in cancellation of the reservation.
Can I pay for my trip on the day of the show?
Full payment must be mailed directly to our office, online through your account, or over the phone with a credit card. For security reasons, we cannot accept payment at the theatre.
What happens if I am late for a performance?
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. In order to minimize distraction, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to seat latecomers in their assigned seat, but we will seat you in the best available seats at an appropriate moment during the performance.
How far in advance should I make a reservation?
We highly suggest ordering tickets in advance, so you will not be surprised by a sold out show. A wait list is an option, but tickets are not guaranteed.
How long are the performances?
All of our performances are approximately 45 to 60 minutes, with the exeption of Shakespeare plays or Lighting Thief which is 70 minutes in length.
