If you try to purchase tickets to a performance and learn it is sold out, there is still hope! Sometimes additional seats may be released at the last minute. Check again online or at any box office 24 hours prior to the performance to see if any new tickets are available.

Due to various permitting and building codes, a ticket must be presented for each person who enters an indoor show, including infants. All tickets are general admission, with first come-first serve seating at all venues and shows. Because Fringe shows must keep to a tight schedule, latecomers are not permitted access. Also, keep in mind there are no intermissions. If you leave for any reason you will not be readmitted.
