Frequently Asked Questions

One hour prior to public performances, any remaining seats are available to the general public at a substantial discount on a first-come, first-served basis. Rush tickets are only sold in person at our ticket window.

What if I miss my performance?  

CTC does not offer compensation for missed performances or refunds on ticket purchases. CTC rarely cancels performances due to inclement weather. If you are concerned or unsure about traveling in inclement weather, we recommend you prioritize safety, and exchange, donate, or convert your tickets to a credit as early as possible.
