Give the arts lovers in your life gift certificates so that they may choose their preferred performances.

Our gift certificates may be purchased for any amount and may be used toward tickets to all public performances presented by The Clarice purchased through our ticket office. They may not be used towards rental events, gala events, parking or purchases at Encore and Applause. Gift certificates expire four years from purchase date.

Returns, exchanges and ticket donations

  • If you have purchased the gift certificate: We accept returns; the funds will be credited back to your form of payment. (See below for exceptions.)
  • If you have used the gift certificate: We accept refunds at any time before the event; the funds will be credited back as a new gift certificate. Our gift certificates cannot be redeemed for cash.

If you request a refund for an order paid with cash, check or a now-expired credit card, you must complete a Form W-9 so that the State of Maryland may issue you a refund check. Note that this process takes 6-8 weeks to complete.

Lost your gift certificate?

Please contact our ticket office. We’ll reprint your lost gift certificate and/or provide you with your new redemption code. We will need to know the name of the person who purchased the gift certificate.
