We do have concessions and also serve alcohol. You will be able to bring all purchased food and drink into both the Evjue and Drury spaces.
- – When are the showtimes for the shows?
There is not standard showtime for shows at the Bartell Theatre. Please refer to the webpages for each show to get the dates and times. Traditionally, the lobby doors open 60 minutes before showtime, and seating begins 30 minutes before showtime.
- – I was unable to purchase tickets online. Does that mean the show is sold out?
Online ticket sales stop 2 hours before showtime. If you’re attempting to purchase tickets less than two hours before showtime, please call the box office. If you’re trying to purchase tickets before the 2-hour window, it’s possible the show is sold out. You can call the box office to confirm. (608) 661-9696
- – Can I hold tickets and purchase them at the door?
Unfortunately we are unable to hold tickets without payment at this time.
- – I purchased tickets but now I’m unable to go. What are my options? Are there refunds?
While we do not offer refunds, fear not, you have a few options!
a) We can exchange the ticket for a different performance of the same show. No charge!
b) If you’re unable to attend any shows during the run, but still want to support
community theatre, consider donating your ticket payment to the Bartell Theatre. It’s tax deductible!
c) Consider gifting your tickets to a friend! Whatever option you choose, give the box office a call at (608) 661-9696 or email us with any questions or concerns.
- – Do you have a waitlist or do you release tickets?
There are two answers to this question:
a) If a show sells out in pre-sale, we can add your name to a waitlist, but we cannot guarantee you’ll receive a ticket. We are happy to get you tickets for a different night if possible.
b) If the show is sold out and you have purchased tickets and/or have comp tickets in will-call and you have NOT called to let the box office know you will be running late, we release all un-claimed tickets at showtime. If you arrive late and find your ticket has been released, we will issue a refund.
