Group Ordering & Policies

  • In order to make a group reservation, please contact our Group Sales Manager at 513.421.3555 and provide the best estimate of the number of seats that will be needed, complete billing information, phone number and e-mail address.
  • Group sales are available for purchase when all single tickets for the current season go on sale in August.
  • We make every attempt to put group members as close together as possible when seating; however that is not always possible. We will never assign single seats without group leader approval and will review seating arrangements before billing. Remember: the earlier you make your reservation, the more seating options we can offer your group.
  • Once your order has been confirmed, you will be sent an invoice/contract via email, unless another method is specified.
  • All group sales inquiries will be returned within 24 hours, Monday through Thursday during regular business hours.

Group Sales Policies

  • It is ETC's box office policy to not hold any unpaid reservations. ETC will not reserve group seating until we have received a signed contract and deposit.
  • 50% of the balance is due at time of reservation. Seats will not be held without a deposit. Remaining balance is due by time of performance. Any outstanding balance payment must be brought to the theatre and presented to the Box Office prior to the performance. If more than one date has been selected for a specific group to attend multiple performances, any/all balances must be paid prior to the first performance date chosen, per the Group Sales contract. A $5 processing fee will be attributed to all group order sales.
  • You have up until 7 days prior to the Group Contract performance date to decrease any numbers in your group without being charged. If you decrease numbers after this deadline, you will still be charged for original reservations per your contract.
  • If your numbers fall beneath the group minimum (8), you no longer qualify for the GROUP RATE and will be required to pay the full price for each ticket. We will apply your deposit payment to this balance.
  • You may add group tickets at any time. Additional tickets and seating are subject to availability at the time of reservation.
  • You must pay your balance with one company check (we cannot except individual payments from group members). We also accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express,and Discover Card.
  • There are no refunds on group tickets under any circumstances. In the event a performance is cancelled (i.e., for inclement weather), we will reschedule your group for another mutually agreeable performance.
  • Please make sure your group members arrive with adequate time. We recommend telling your group to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to show time. We will not hold the start time of a performance for a tardy group or individual group members. Latecomers will be admitted at the discretion of our House Management, per box office policies.
