YOU’RE ABOUT TO EXPERIENCE SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL.
TICKET PURCHASES: The box office opens one hour prior
to performances. The sale or exchange of tickets to future performances cannot be completed during the 30 minutes prior to a performance. The box office is available for all services during intermission (if the show includes one) and after the performance. Call (717) 327-5124 or visit us online at primalancaster.org on non-performance days to avoid waiting in line to exchange or purchase additional tickets.
Tickets may be purchased online, by phone, or in person at the box office. Call (717) 327-5124 for current box office hours. There is a $4.00 patron technology systems fee per order on all ticket orders.
Tickets cannot be reserved without payment, which must be received at the time of purchase.
ARRIVAL: The Prima lobby typically opens to the public
one hour prior to the performance. The doors to the theatre normally open 20-30 minutes prior to a performance. Traffic in and around Lancaster can be congested at times, so Prima recommends allowing yourself plenty of time to arrive, park, use the restroom and purchase concessions before the event begins. Ushers will direct you to your seat and are happy to answer any questions you may have about Prima’s amenities.
TICKET EXCHANGE POLICY: Prima understands that plans change and strives to be flexible with ticket policies. While tickets may not be refunded, we do offer ticket exchanges for both subscribers and single ticket purchasers.
INDIVIDUAL TICKET SALE EXCHANGES: Tickets may only be exchanged within the same production, as availability allows, for a fee of $5.00 per order.
Ticket exchanges must occur at least 48 hours prior to a performance and cannot be exchanged after the performance has passed.
If you choose a more expensive seat, the price difference will be due. We are not able to refund when exchanging into a lower priced seating section.
Once you have exchanged your tickets, your original tickets will become invalid and are immediately available for sale to the general public. Your new tickets will be emailed to you or held at Will Call based on your preference.
If at the last minute you are unable to use your tickets, we recommend gifting them to friends, family or coworkers. Tickets can also be turned into a contribution to support Prima’s artistic programming initiatives. The value of the donated ticket is tax-deductible as the law allows.
Exchanges can be made by calling the box office at (717) 327-5124.
Subscribers and Prima Partners (Friends of Prima, Corporate Partners) may exchange tickets for another performance
of the same production, subject to availability. There are no exchange fees for subscribers and Prima Partners. Tickets cannot be exchanged on the day of the performance or after a performance has occurred.
