I am picking my tickets up the day of the show. Where is Will Call located?
Pre-paid tickets may be placed in “Will Call” and picked up inside the main theatre doors before a performance.
Can I buy tickets the day of the show?
The Box Office opens one hour before an event. We strongly encourage patrons to purchase tickets in advance when possible. Buying tickets early is an advantage many patrons make use of since they are able to select the best seating and avoid long wait lines.
Can I return my tickets?
All sales are final. Patrons may exchange tickets for a future Palace sponsored performance of the same value or pay any additional charges. Tickets must be returned to the Box Office at least 24 hours in advance of the event.
What do I do if the show is cancelled?
In the rare event of a cancellation we will make every effort to notify patrons beforehand, often by telephone. You will be instructed to return your tickets to the Box Office, at which time the price of the tickets will be refunded. If you purchased your tickets with a credit card, your account will be credited. If you purchased your tickets with cash or a check, you will be mailed a refund check. Refunds cannot be processed for cash. Tickets may also be exchanged for another event.
What if I can’t make it because of the weather?
If the show goes on as scheduled we are contractually obligated to pay the performers. Therefore, we do not offer weather-related refunds.
Do you sell gift certificates?
Yes. You can purchase gift certificates in any amount at the Box Office. Gift certificates can be used for Palace events, movies, concessions or Arts Palace classes. However, we cannot honor gift certificates for events presented by outside promoters, such as shows sponsored by organizations for their fundraising benefits. Gift certificates are good for two years from the date of purchase.

Where can I see an up-to-date list of all shows coming to the Palace?
Our brochure can be found in the Box Office and online. You may request to be placed on our mailing list or e-mail list too; emails may be sent to email@example.com.
Who is responsible for deciding which shows will be booked?
The majority of the shows presented at the Palace Theatre are booked by the Executive Director with approval of the Board of Directors. However, many shows are presented by outside promoters who rent the theatre and are responsible for setting the ticket prices, advertising and the quality of the production.
Why don’t you bring in (insert your favorite artists here)?
Factors that go into deciding what artists to book include artist fees and availability, the size of the show, how many people will attend and how much will they pay. Oftentimes your favorite artist either doesn’t have a big enough following or is so popular that we can’t afford him or her or they will not perform here because we are too small. The best way to share an idea for an artist is to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When do the doors open before a performance?
As a rule, theatre doors open one hour before a scheduled event. The inner lobby doors open at the discretion of the Palace management, usually 45-60 minutes prior to curtain. Latecomers will be seated at an appropriate break in the performance.
Can I bring food or drinks into the theatre?
We do not allow outside food or beverages to be brought into the theatre. Soft drinks, water and snacks are available for purchase at the Palace Theatre and may be taken into the auditorium. Alcoholic beverages are not allowed in the theatre and must be consumed in the May Pavilion. We reserve the right to limit alcohol sales.
Can I meet the artists? Get autographs?
Occasionally artists will agree to meet with fans after the show in the lobby. Otherwise, audience members are not allowed backstage.
Are cameras/recording devices allowed at the performance?
The use of flash photography, video and audio recorders during performances is strictly prohibited by the artists.
Why do you ask for donations beyond ticket costs?
The Palace Theatre is a 501(c)3, non-profit, tax exempt corporation. Memberships and other donations made to the PCAA are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
Why do members get first available seats? How do I become a member?
One of the benefits of being a member is having the opportunity to select seats for the new season prior to tickets going on sale to the general public. Our membership drive begins in April and the new season is announced in August. Members are sent letters by donation level telling them when they may purchase tickets. You may call or stop in the box office and complete a membership form during box office hours.
