Tickets, Seating & Other Information
Doors will open 30 minutes prior to each performance.
General Admission: With the exception of Premier Ticketing, all tickets to all venues are
unallocated General Admission.
Spiegeltent Premier Seating: For an additional $10 per ticket, Premier ticket holders will be able to choose seats in a dedicated Premier Seating area (our selection of the finest seats in the tent), complete with a cushion for your comfort. Please note that Premier tickets do not correspond to an individual seat number, so if you arrive right before the show, your choice of seats will be limited to the seats remaining in the Premier seating area.
Spiegeltent Family Show Seating: For selected family shows in the Spiegeltent, General Admission will include standard seating in an area closest to the stage with cushions on the floor. We hope this will provide a better viewing experience for children. We encourage adults to refrain from sitting in the cushioned area.

Selected shows offer concession pricing for:
• Senior citizens
• Full time students
• Children (1-12 years)
