Beginning Thursday, June 13, 2024, all print-at-home and mobile tickets will be sent 48 hours before showtime. Please make sure you use a valid email when ordering and add to your address book to ensure delivery. This change does not affect Classic member or All-Access member tickets.

    • Performances begin on time. Late seating is at the discretion of the House Manager
    • The theatre opens approximately 30 minutes before curtain for seating
    • Seating for most events is assigned unless General Admission is noted on your ticket.
    • No one under the age of 5 is permitted into the theatre at Season shows with the exception of FROZEN. Please consult age guidelines at Theatre for Young Audiences performances.
    • All ticket sales are final. Please consider reading our Content Guidance page before attending a production.
    • Discount codes, when available, cannot be combined with other offers and are never valid on previously purchased tickets.
    • Prices subject to change.
    • Olney Theatre Center works with a very limited number of secondary market re-sellers, including TodayTix and Certifikid. Olney Theatre Center is not responsible for tickets sold by unauthorized secondary re-sellers and may choose not to honor them. In the event of a cancellation, we will not refund tickets acquired via second-party resellers. To protect your purchase, we strongly discourage using ticket procurement services such as Vivid Seats and tickets-center-dot-com.
    • How do I know if I'm using a ticket procurement service?
      According to a new Maryland law that takes effect July 1, 2024 ticket procurement services must identify themselves clearly by disclosing the following:

      • That the tickets they are selling are speculative tickets, and the reseller is not in possession of the tickets
      • That the reseller is making an offer to procure the tickets for the prospective purchaser
      • For seated events the re-seller must be able to give you the specific seat number of the tickets or disclose that the reseller cannot guarantee the specific seats because the tickets are speculative tickets.

    • Tickets may not be sold for more than face value. Limited exceptions for charitable events may be made, only with OTC’s prior consent.

In the event a person or organization purchases more than the limit, OTC may revoke and unsell all or part of the excess and issue a refund.
    • OTC reserves the right to not sell a ticket to any person or organization if we have knowledge or reason to believe, by virtue of the buying process, the buyer’s behavior or for other reason, that the purchase is for resale or would otherwise violate OTC’s terms or policies or applicable laws.
