All tickets are on sale now! It’s important to know that these tickets guarantee admissions only, and seating is not guaranteed. Online ticket sales close one hour before each show time, but can be purchased at the door of the show, with cash, credit, or debit.

Also, tickets are specific to pavilion, date, and show time, (and non-refundable). Once purchased, tickets may not be exchanged for another pavilion, date, or show time so make sure you plan which shows you want to see ahead of time!
