Guarantee your seats for a season of fun!

Get the best seats! Subscribers always get the best available seats. Many of the performances at The Loft Theatre sell out rapidly. Guarantee yourself the seats of your choice.

Skip the service fee! Subscribers do not pay the Ticket Office service fee. Single ticket buyers pay the fee if ordering by phone or over the internet.

Exchange privileges! As a subscriber you may change your plans and change your tickets for another night – no problem. A small up-charge fee will be applied if you switch into a more expensive performance.

Ticket insurance! Misplace your tickets? Call the Ticket Office to reprint them!
