Because our current production Disney's Beauty and the Beast is sold out:

If you have tickets on reserve and find you will not be able to attend, please telephone the box office to release those tickets for sale.

If you have season tickets that you will not be able to use, please let us know so that those tickets can be released for someone who wants to see the show.

We appreciate your helping us.

Remember we are ALL volunteers.  The box office is only open during the posted hours, no one is there during the morning or early afternoon to take your calls.  There are usually many people at the window and with only one person working, it is sometimes difficult to get through, but we are trying to keep up with the calls.
