How to Purchase Tickets
In Person - We love visitors! Our Box Office is open Monday through Friday from 11 am-5 pm, and 90 minutes before showtime, and is located in the Lobby of the Main Street Stage at 420 E Main Street, Anoka, MN 55303.
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. Calls are returned in the order received and will be answered within 24 hours.
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.
We strongly suggest that you do not use the online system to see ticket availability if you do not plan on purchasing online. The online system automatically places a hold on any seats viewed online. These holds can last up to 60 minutes, and until the hold is expired, the Box Office cannot sell these tickets.

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 - We here at Lyric Arts believe "the show must go on". However, in the event inclement weather 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 three hours before curtain. Lyric Arts will also make every effort to inform guests of this decision as soon as possible by phone and social media. If this occurs, tickets will be exchangeable to another performance of the same production. Tickets would be exchangeable to another production only if it is closing weekend or the current production is already sold out. Tickets can also be refunded in the form of credit, which can be used towards any future purchase at the Box Office.
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.
Sold Out/Limited Availability - Once a performance has less than 25 seats left, the link for that date is deactivated on the performance calendar to notify patrons of limited availability. Dates that appear in grey on the online performance calendar online are either sold out or have limited availability. To purchase tickets for these dates, please contact the Box Office. Dates that are completely sold out will be marked as such on the performance calendar. Waiting lists are not made if a performance is sold out.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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.
