Theatre FAQs

Holding Tickets:
We cannot 'hold' or 'reserve' tickets based on phone messages. Your order is only complete with payment - either online or live with one of our Box Office staff.

We cannot issue refunds on tickets.  All payments are final.  In the event a show is postponed or cancelled exchanges will be made at the discretion of the Box Office manager.   Exchanges are made based on availability for productions with multiple performances (usually Theatre Department plays), but cannot be made for "one-night-only" shows (most Cultural Arts Series events). 

Sold-Out Shows:
For the latest updates on sell-outs, call the Box Office at 218-855-8199.

CLC Student Ticket Discounts:
Only currently enrolled CLC (Brainerd/Staples campus) students are eligible.  Discount rate is not extended to friends and/or family of CLC students.

Ticket prices vary from show-to-show.  For pricing information go the calendar on the Theatre homepage or call the Box Office at 218-855-8199.

CLC student discount tickets can only be purchased at the Box Office.  You will be asked to present your student ID card at the Box Office to make your ticket purchase.

Enjoying the Theatre:
Arriving Early - Plan on getting to the theater early! Give yourself approximately 15 minutes for things like parking, picking up tickets at will-call, and using the restroom. (Unlike the movies, we do not show previews!) The doors to the theater usually open 30 minutes prior to show time; this is known as "house open."

A rriving Late - Late seating is at the discretion of the house manager. As a courtesy to our audience and for the safety of our performers, we seat latecomers only at a break in the action and near the door to the hallway. If the event is assigned seating, wait until intermission to find your assigned seat.

Cameras, Cell-phones, and Souvenirs - Unless announced otherwise, turn off cell-phones during the show. If you need to be contacted during the performance, please ask callers to telephone the Box Office at (218)855-8199. Notify the house manager that you may be expecting a call, and s/he will give you any messages during intermission. Additionally, recording the performance is not allowed - including flash photography or video/audio recording.

Young Children – Please do not bring toddlers or infants.  We reserve the right to refuse admission.  Information on the content of a particular show, and age appropriateness, appears in advertising.  When in doubt, ask the Box Office.
Meet-and-Greets - Performers may be willing to meet and greet after the performance. Some events have merchandise for sale in the lobby during or after the show. Expect to pay with cash or check for these items
