Important information for Returning Subscribers:
To ensure priority seating, current subscribers must renew their subscriptions by July 22nd. The Ticket Office will begin summer hours on July 5th. Summer hours will be Monday through Friday from noon to 5 pm.
Returning subscribers are guaranteed their seats from the previous season unless:
- The total number of seats in the order has increased and the subscriber prefers the seats to be together.
- The subscription renewal form is received after the renewal deadline (July 22nd).
Requests for new seat assignments are processed after all subscribers who wish to keep their same seats have been accommodated. Requests should be submitted directly to the ticket office (by phone or in person) and cannot be made through an online order. Approximately 95% of all subscribers are renewing subscribers, so the number of seats available to fill relocation requests is very limited.
Important information for new subscribers:
The ticket office will begin taking orders for new subscriptions on August 1, 2016. Orders may be placed online, over the phone (740-593-1780), or in person during ticket office hours. Placement will be made on a first-come first-serve basis.
