Q: Can I use my season tickets online?
A: Yes you can. To use your season tickets online the box office must have your email address. If you have not already provided  your email to the box office, please call the box office at 248-1141 with your email address. After you have done that you are ready to use your season tickets online.

Q: Why am I not able to use my season tickets online the first week tickets go on sale to Season Ticket Holders?
A: Online ticketing has to be open to everyone or no one, because of this we do not open online sales until the week the tickets are available to the general public. This is because we still want to be able to give Season Ticket Holders the perk of getting their tickets a week early. As always Season Ticket Holders are able to call or come into the box office the first week tickets are on sale.

Q: How do I purchase tickets online?
A: To purchase your tickets online click any of the red tickets that say “Buy Now”. There are links on the Box Office/Tickets page and on the pages of show that have tickets currently available. We have also put the “Buy Now” ticket here on this page for your convenience.

Q: Is there an extra fee for getting my tickets online?
A: Yes, for a credit card transaction there is a $2.00 per ticket processing fee for purchasing tickets online. However, that fee does not apply if you are using season tickets online.

Q: How do I get my tickets if I order them online?
A: There are two ways to get your tickets after you have ordered them online. The first option is to select the Print At Home option, when you print at home you can either print the ticket right away after the purchase is complete or you will receive an email that has a link to print your tickets at a later date. The second option is to select the Will Call option, your tickets will be held in the box office for you to pick up during box office hours or the night of the performance.

Each director has a different method of auditioning. Most directors will have those auditioning read from the script. To help prep yourself for a better audition, you may check out a script from the box office ahead of time so that you may familiarize yourself with the play.

For musicals, most directors require a prepared musical audition piece.  Call the box office or check the auditions notifications for specifics.

Q:  How do BST’s Season Tickets work?
A:  There are two main season ticket packages. These packages usually go on sale in early May and remain on sale through the end of the first show of the season. Various promotions may occur at the early stages of this sales period to entice patrons to purchase their tickets early.

Tickets may be used in any combination for admittance. One for each show, all for one show, or any other combination.

As mentioned above there are two packages.
