Phone - Call the Box Office during regular business hours at 763-422-1838. In the event that your call is sent to voicemail due to a high volume of calls, please leave a message so that we can return your call as soon as possible.

Online - Buy tickets online by visiting our buy tickets page. Please note that gift certificates, vouchers, or other discounts cannot be applied for online purchases.

Please do not use the online system to see ticket availability if you do not plan on purchasing online. The online system places a hold on those tickets for you which can last up to 60 minutes, and until the hold is expired, the Box Office cannot sell those tickets to you.

Ticket Policies

Accessibility - Row I is reserved for parties including persons using wheelchairs, walkers, or persons with limited mobility. These wheelchair accessible seats and companion seats are available for purchase by people with disabilities and their companions for every performance, subject to availability.

Age Restrictions - As a courtesy to our guests, children under five years of age are not admitted to our productions, no exceptions. All guests require a ticket.

Exchanges - Ticket exchanges are available, but must be made at least 24 hours in advance of purchased performance with a transfer fee of $2 per ticket. Tickets cannot be exchanged for a different production and are not available for concerts or special events. In the event of a missed performance, single tickets cannot be exchanged after the assigned performance date.

Inclement Weather - In the event of inclement weather that requires us to cancel a performance, the Box Office will have an outgoing message describing Lyric Arts' plans of a cancelled performance. The decision regarding whether or not to cancel will be made—and the message recorded—no later than 5 pm. If this occurs tickets will be exchangeable or refundable, with refunds given in the form of a complimentary ticket certificate. Lyric Arts will also make every effort to inform guests of this decision as soon as possible by phone and social media.

Online Ticket Printing - Tickets bought online may be printed from the computer once the transaction has been finalized. If multiple seats were purchased in a single transaction, all the seats numbers will be shown on a single ticket. For any printer-related issues, please contact the Box Office and we will reprint the tickets to be held at Will Call.

Processing Fees - Tickets purchased for all productions and events held at the Main Street Stage are subject to a non-refundable processing fee. These fees are necessary to offset ticket order processing service fees, ticketing vendor fees, internet provider services, ticket stock, and other ticket expenses. These fees are always non-refundable, regardless of cancellations or postponements. Fee rates vary and are dependent upon the method of purchase; single tickets purchased in person or over the phone are 10%, online purchases are 15%, and subscribers have a reduced rate of 5%.

Refunds All ticket sales are final; we are unable to offer refunds. Any unused tickets may be turned into the Box Office before any performance and be processed as a donation for a tax-deductible donation receipt.

Rush Tickets - Subject to availability, $15 Rush Tickets will go on sale in the Box Office 30 minutes before any Lyric Arts performance. Rush tickets must be purchased in person and are not available for concerts or special events. 

Third-Party Sales - For some Lyric Arts productions, a limited number of tickets are sold through third-party sites such as Goldstar. These tickets are usually sold at half-price (excluding processing fees). For any exchanges or assistance with purchasing these tickets, please contact Goldstar directly at help@goldstar.com.

Ticket Delivery - All tickets purchased over the phone are held at Will Call unless the buyer requests the tickets be delivered. All mailed tickets are subject to a $2 delivery fee. Requests for delivery must be made before the credit card payment has been processed, no exceptions.

Group Sales

Bringing a group to the Main Street Stage is easy and convenient! We welcome groups of all kinds; co-workers, family gatherings, church groups, Red Hatters, social clubs, et cetera. The options are endless! Any group of 15 guests or more is eligible for group rates. Visit our Group Sales page for more information.

School Day Matinees

Every year, Lyric Arts provides School Day Matinee performances for two of our season's most family-friendly productions. These selections are specifically designed to entertain students while also introducing them to the performing arts and classic storytelling in a professional setting. School Day Matinees are made available to school groups (including home school and daycare groups) of 10 or more students at the special price of $8 per ticket. Plus, teachers receive one free ticket with every 12 student tickets reserved. Visit our Field Trips page for more information.

ASL Interpreted Performances

Sign Language Interpretation is provided at the first Sunday performance of each regular season production. These performances are indicated on the production calendar by the green ASL symbol to the right. A limited number of seats near the interpreters are reserved for patrons using this service on these nights.

These seats are held in reserve until three weeks prior to the performance. In the event that no ASL seating has been reserved, all ASL seats will be released to the general public and the Sign Language Interpretation will be canceled. To ensure that an interpreted performance is offered, guests must make their reservation before the three week deadline.

When ordering tickets, please indicate your need for seating in this section. Lyric Arts offers guests requiring ASL interpretation a discount of $5 off the price of their ticket and $5 off a ticket for a companion. This offer is only valid on the afternoon the ASL Interpretation is offered. Please visit our Accessibility page for ASL Interpreted performance dates.

Post-Show Talkback Performances

Lyric Arts’ Post-Show Talkbacks are the best way to get the most out of a production and get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into producing a show. Post-Show Talkbacks are held after the second Sunday afternoon performance of each show, and are indicated on the production calendar by the red Talkback symbol to the right. The audience is invited to participate in a Q-and-A session with the director, designers, and the cast of the production. Please visit our Post-Show Talkback page for Talkback performance dates.
