Group Packages
If your group is planning on attending three or more shows at The Rep during the same season, a group package offers great value! By purchasing tickets for multiple shows at once, your group will save BIG! For your early commitment to three or more shows, you’ll receive a special rate that is lower than you’d be able to get purchasing each show separately! Additionally, if your group numbers grow, you can add additional tickets to you packages at the regular group rate! If you would like to learn more about the group packages available, please contact our Group Sales Manager. Please note: While the number of tickets in a package will stay the same from show to show, the location of your seats may change.

School Groups
We offer student matinees for many of our productions, as well as great prices for students to attend any public performance. As an educator, you and your students have the opportunity to partake in:
» Literary content to utilize as teaching resources

Call or e-mail the Group Sales Manager to book your tickets at the contact information below. We’ll check on the availability and book your tickets. Please note: We make every effort to keep your group seated as close together as possible when seating, however sometimes performances are already very full. We will never assign single seats without your permission. Once the order is made, a contract/invoice will be sent to your email confirming the order. This contract must be signed and sent back to the group sales coordinator within five business days of reservation, no questions asked. If contract is not received within specified time, your seats will be released for public sale.

Once final payment has been received, your tickets will be mailed out to a specified address or, if time does not permit, held at will call for your full group pickup.

FAQs

When is our payment due? Do I need a deposit?
A 20% down payment is due at the time of booking and is not refundable. Payment in full is due one month prior to your scheduled visit. The due date is printed on your Group Sales invoice/contract. Please call The Rep’s Group Sales Manager if you are unsure of your due date. Any orders unpaid past their due date will be subject to cancellation. Down payments are non-refundable.

My group really wants to place a reservation, but we cannot afford to make a 20% down payment upfront. Do we have any options?
All group reservations require a 20% down payment, no exceptions. If your group is unable to make a 20% down payment, a purchase order will suffice. Please contact The Rep’s Group Sales Coordinator if you have any questions about the down payment requirement.

I’m a teacher looking to reserve for a school group, but I won’t know my class/student numbers until later. Can I make a reservation now?
Yes, you may place your order now. We recommend reserving the minimum number you think you will need, and then adding tickets later when you know your final student numbers. Please click here for more information on school groups at The Rep. 

What is your cancellation policy?
All payments on an order are considered a final sale; no refunds, exchange or cancellations are permitted for group orders.

My group didn’t use all of the tickets we purchased; can my group get a refund?
All sales are final and The Rep does not offer any refunds for group tickets for any reason. Tickets may be donated back to The Rep for resale as a tax-deductible donation, but this must be done 24 hours prior to your scheduled performance. Please contact The Rep’s Group Sales Manager if you wish to do this.

What if there is a snowstorm and we can't make the trip?
The Rep does not cancel due to bad weather. If you have concerns, please contact the Group Sales Manager in the event of a snowstorm or other event/emergency that prevents all or part of your group from attending the performance. We will make every effort to find a sufficient solution, but we cannot guarantee an exchange to a new date and there are no refunds.

What if our numbers drop from our initial reservation?
We ask that you give us your best estimate for people actually attending when you initially reserve your group tickets. However, you do have until your final payment due date to lower your ticket count. In the event that you need to lower your ticket count, please contact the Group Sales Manager as soon as you know and an updated invoice/contract will be sent to you.

My group’s number has dropped to less than 10 individuals, what happens now?
In order to be considered a group, your ticket number MUST stay at 10 or more. If your group number drops below 10, your group order will be canceled and you will be responsible for paying the full price for your tickets, including all Single Ticket fees.

What if our numbers grow from our initial reservation?
This is good news! As long as there are tickets available, we will happily add tickets to your order at the same rate as the rest of the group. While we cannot guarantee these tickets will be seated with your initial group, we will try our best to accommodate by seating as close to the rest of the group or in comparable seating. It is best to add any additional tickets to your order as soon as you know you need them.

Artists such as Louis Armstrong, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Alberta Hunter and Ma Rainey all recorded there. This exuberant musical celebration of some of the greatest jazz and blues music features four sensational quadruple threat performers guiding the journey through story and song.
