Special Deals for Kids
New in 2017 is our K75 program, which gives steeply discounted tickets (about 75% off) to children and teens 16 and younger who attend with adults. K75 tickets may be reserved and paid for in advance, so they may be booked at the same time as your adult tickets, and will be held for you to pick up at the performance. (Up to 5 K75 tickets for each full-price adult ticket you buy.)
And we also continue our popular Kids Come Free program, which has for over two decades given free tickets to kids (16 and younger) who attend with paying adults. (1 adult, 1 child.) Kids Come Free tickets are available only the night of the performance. Present pre-purchased adult tickets at the box office and we'll get your children's tickets as close as possible. Or to guarantee they'll be together, purchase your adult tickets that night.
Final Dress Rehearsals
July 6, August 3, and August 31 are open to the public. These tickets are available only on the night itself (no pre-sales), at the upper box office, starting about 7 p.m., with the final dress rehearsal starting at 8 p.m. All tickets are $20, and no further discounts apply. Cannot be combined with K75, Kids Come Free, or other promos. You may sit anywhere you like, and you may bring picnics and use any open picnic tables, no additional charge. Limited concessions are available. This is a fun chance to see the show before it's officially open, to sit in your "dream seats" at Woodminster, and to pay much less than what you'd ordinarily pay for our least expensive seats. Please be aware that these are rehearsals, and though we hope to run with performance conditions, we may have to stop.
Special Seat Requests
If you have a particular place in the amphitheater you would like to sit, we strongly advise you to purchase your tickets by phone or in person, so a box office staff member can help you personally. When you purchase tickets online, you choose a section/price level, but we can't assign individual seats at the time of purchase through the online system.
If you purchase single tickets, you may present them at the box office the night of the performance (or any time after June 1) and request Kids Come Free tickets for your children 16 and younger. We will give you free seats as close as possible to your regular seats, but they will not be adjacent unless you purchase your adult tickets the night of the performance as well.

Exchange Policy: $3.00 per ticket exchange fee. (Free exchanges for $100+ donors.) Exchanges limited to another performance of the same show. Exchanges must be completed at the box office no later than 2 hours before curtain.
