Assigned Seating

All seating is assigned. Your seat number can be found on your ticket. Handicapped & companion seats are available for all performances. Customers requiring special seating consideration due to a medical condition should notify the box office staff when purchasing tickets.

Arrival Time

Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled performance time. The theater will be opened for seating by the House Manager approximately 30 minutes prior to curtain. Latecomers will be seated completely at the discretion of the House Manager at the first appropriate break that allows for the least disruption for the actors and audience. Tickets that are not redeemed when the show begins may be released for resale at the discretion of the house manager.

Show Cancellations

Performance cancellations due to inclement weather or other circumstances are very rare. When a performance must be canceled, we will make every attempt to contact you to make arrangements for an alternate date. Please note: Desert Theatreworks does not offer refunds when a performance has taken place regardless of the circumstances.

Show Title Changes

Season titles are subject to change. On very rare occasions, Desert Theatreworks may change a  show(s) that is being produced. Desert Theatreworks will always substitute a show that is comparable to the show being substituted. We will contact ticket holders and inform them as soon as possible. Please note: Desert Theatreworks does not offer refunds for tickets to a title that is changed, regardless of the circumstances.

Food & Beverage

Food & Beverages purchased from our snack bar are permitted in our lobby and theaters.
