Are my children old enough to enjoy the show?

No children under 4 years-old will be admitted to any performance, except for the spring children’s show. No babes in arms, or lap children. If you have purchased a ticket for a child too young to attend, please contact The Box Office for a refund. For older children and regular performances, it is up to you.  You will find age recommendations for each show based on how we are selling the shows to school groups.

Group Ticket Sales

The group rate price is $25.00 per ticket – $5 off our Adult ticket (Adult tickets are $30 + $3 Fee)

Pay one $10 Fee for your entire Group Sales Order.

Group Rate tickets are available for a party of ten or more adult priced tickets.

Student and Youth rate tickets are not eligible for, nor do they count toward, the group rate discount as these tickets are already sold at a discounted price.

BOOK YOUR GROUP EARLY – Groups may reserve for any show at any time by calling (207) 782-3200.  You cannot reserve Group Rate tickets ONLINE.  Please call us to reserve your group.

In order to receive the Group Rate you will have to organize your group, make your reservation, pay for it in advance, and designate one person to pick up all of the tickets to distribute to your group.

You will find helpful hints, and details about our group sales policy here:
