Interest in our Mid-Autumn Event has always been strong and all tickets, which are complimentary, are usually reserved in a very short period of time. In the past we have had a long wait list for tickets as well as students waiting at the performance, hoping to get tickets at the last minute. At the same time we have had empty theater seats reserved for ticketholders who have not shown up or returned their tickets. In order to fairly distribute the complimentary tickets and ensure their use we ask you to please be aware of the following:


  • Tickets are no longer available on a “will call” basis on the evening of the performance.

  • The number of tickets available per guest is limited to 2, with assigned seat numbers that will require an I.D. and contact information for pickup.

  • Because this is traditionally a family holiday we are happy to have children attend. We have “children’s tickets” available on request in addition to 2 adult tickets. These tickets will only allow entry for children attending with an adult and cannot be used for adult entrance.


    If you find that you will not be using tickets that you have reserved, we request that you let us know by supplying your contact information and ticket numbers so that we may give the seats to someone on the wait list.


  • Click on the link below and fill out the ticket request form.
    You will receive a letter by email informing you if your tickets are confirmed or if you are on the wait list.
    If your tickets are confirmed please follow the instructions for picking them up as per your confirmation letter: Tickets must be picked up in person with proper I.D. as per the confirmation letter.

    Out of respect for the performers and your fellow audience members we ask that you please arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled performance time.
