By popular demand, we are excited to announce that family and friend groups of 10 or more now have the flexibility to purchase their tickets through a Ticket Office associate! Online purchasing options for groups are coming soon.

How it works:

  1. Family/friend group leaders solidify desired date, performance time, and the amount of tickets needed for all adults, children, seniors, and college students in the group.
    Adult: ages 18-61
    Child: ages 3-17
    Senior: ages 62+
    College Student: valid ID

    Lap passes are available for $5 each at the ticket window on your way into the UnitedHealth Group Stage for children ages newborn to 3 years old. Lap passes will not be available in the Cargill Stage for The Last Firefly in the 2016-2017 Season. More information can be found on the specific show page or by calling the Ticket Office at 612.874.0400 for assistance. Everyone in the theatre must have a ticket regardless of age.
  2. Please note the following policy changes:
    1. Payment for online orders will be due in full at the time of reservation. If you’d prefer to set up a payment plan for your order, you may do so through a Ticket Office associate.
    2. No refunds or exchanges can be made after the initial reservation is made and payment is processed, whether in full or partial payments.
    3. If you’ve requested a partial payment, the second charge will automatically go through one month after the reservation date unless you’ve requested otherwise.
    4. Payments may be completed in up to 3 installments as long as the order is paid in full no later than 10 business days prior the performance.
    5. Partial payments must either be made by the same person each time or with that person providing complete contact and payment information for the subsequent purchaser at the time of reservation.
    6. Additional tickets added after the initial reservation will be subject to availability but will NOT be subject to any price increases that have occurred in that time—book early for the best prices!
    7. A $3.00 per ticket service fee will be applied to any online or phone order during the checkout process. Visit our Ticket Office during normal business hours (listed below) to skip the fees entirely!
    8. Please be aware that if you plan to distribute tickets to individual group members prior to your performance date, CTC will NOT be responsible for reprinting lost or forgotten tickets by individuals who are a part of a group. We strongly recommend distributing tickets upon arrival to the theatre.
  3. Family/friend groups of 10-15 people excluding lap passes may call the Ticket Office to purchase. Online purchasing options for groups are coming soon!
  4. Family/friend groups of 16+ people excluding lap passes may call the Ticket Office during normal business hours at 612.874.0400 to save an extra $3.00 per ticket!

- What is your cancellation policy?

Family and Friend Groups: Once payment is made with a group discount on 6 or more tickets, it is a final sale. No refunds, exchanges, or cancellations will be permitted. If you selected a payment plan at the time of reservation and are cancelling the order before the final charge(s) has been processed, you will not incur the cost of the subsequent charge(s); any payments made toward the order up to the point of cancellation are non-refundable.

Company and Community Groups: Once payment is made on a group order, it is a final sale. No refunds, exchanges, or cancellations will be permitted. If a cancellation is made before payment is processed and also prior to the 6/8 week deadline, no penalty will be incurred.

- Do I need to make a deposit?

Family and Friend Groups: Yes, payment in full is due at the time of reservation unless a payment plan is requested. In that case, 50% of the total order cost will be due at the time of reservation and the other 50% will automatically be charged to the card on file 1 month after the date of reservation OR 10 business days prior to the performance--whichever comes first.

Company and Community Groups: No deposit payment is required. Seats will be held for no charge until your ticket order's payment deadline (either 6 weeks or 8 weeks before the performance). If the initial ticket order is made within the 6 or 8 week deadline, payment in full will be due at the time of reservation.

- Do you give out any comps with group orders?

We do not provide comps with group orders.

- What if our numbers drop from our initial reservation?

Family and Friend Groups: Once payment is made with a group discount on 6 or more tickets, it is a final sale. No refunds, exchanges, or cancellations will be permitted even if some group members experience a change in plans. If you selected a payment plan at the time of reservation and need to cancel the entire order before the final charge(s) has been processed, you will not incur the cost of the subsequent charge(s); any payments made toward the order up to the point of cancellation are non-refundable. Partial order cancellations are not permitted.

Company and Community Groups: Up until your 6/8 week payment deadline, you have the ability to adjust your numbers, change dates, or even cancel the order with no penalty. Once payment is made, it will be considered a final sale; no refunds, exchanges, or cancellations will be permitted.

- What if our numbers grow from our initial reservation?

Family and Friend Groups: As long as there are tickets available in the performance, you can absolutely add on to your existing order. As an added benefit, additional group tickets will not be subject to any price increases that have occurred since the initial reservation date. Seating locations will be subject to availability at the time they are added; CTC cannot guarantee that additional tickets will be available adjacent to the exisiting seats in the order.
