Group Sales Policy

Please note: The policies below are in place for groups in good financial standing with Discovery Theater. We reserve the right to adjust the policy as needed if a group has a history of not adhering to the cancel by and/or payment due deadlines listed on the invoice.

Small Groups (10-19 children)

  1. Payment: Full payment is due at the time of the reservation via credit card.
  2. Cancellations: Orders may be cancelled at any time. A full refund will only be given when the order is cancelled at least four weeks prior to the date of the show. Cancellations made within four weeks of the date of the show may be given credit instead of a refund.

Standard Group (20-99 children)

  1. Payment:
    1. A credit card is required at the time of your reservation to hold your tickets. Your card will not be charged as this time.
    2. Full payment is due by the date printed on your invoice, typically two weeks prior to the show date unless otherwise agreed upon with the Discovery Theater Box Office Manager.
    3. Changes to the number of people in your group can be made up to two weeks prior to the show
    4. Payment can be made by check, money order, cash (in person only), or credit card. Payment is not accepted on the day of your show.
    5. If payment is not received by the due date printed on your reservation or invoice, the credit card on file will be charged for the remaining balance.
    6. Your order is final upon receipt of payment. No refunds will be given for canceled tickets after that time. A credit may be given and is at the discretion of Discovery Theater.
    7. Additional tickets can be purchased after payment has been made, pending availability. Tickets are not usually available at the door (due to shows selling out) so please contact us in advance if you have any extra students or chaperones that will need tickets.
    8. If a credit card is declined and efforts to contact the group leader are unsuccessful, tickets will be released and all orders, including any future performances you may have reserved, will be canceled.
  2. Cancellations:
    1. Orders may be canceled up to four weeks prior to the show.
    2. Orders canceled within the four weeks prior to the show will not receive a refund. If payment has not yet been received, you are still obligated to pay the invoice.

Exchanges and Refund Policy

All ticket sales are final. There are no refunds on tickets once payment is received. A group may change dates by their payment due date (pending availability) without penalty. If your school/center closes due to inclement weather, your account will be credited for a performance later in the season. Due to the schedule and availability, we cannot guarantee the same performance. If Discovery Theater closes (in the case of the federal government closing or inclement weather), you will have the option of rescheduling for another performance or receiving a refund.
