Pay What You Wish Pricing:

We are introducing Pay What You Wish for all ticketed performances in the 2022-23 season, as a way to increase access to the arts. When you select your tickets for any event, you will have the option to choose how much you wish to pay for each ticket.

If you are purchasing online, you will be given options of $5, $10, $20, $30, $40, or $100 to choose from. Pick whichever price you like to pay, with a minimum of $5 for each ticket you are purchasing. When you purchase over the phone or at the ticket office, the ticket seller will ask you how much you would like to pay per ticket.

Student Ticket Information:

UMD students get free tickets! When you select your tickets, choose the "UMD Student Free" option to claim your free student ticket. For more information about free tickets, student jobs, and more, be sure to visit the Student Terps page.


  • Booking fee: $2/ticket (Waived for in-person purchases)

Returns and exchanges*

You may return or exchange your ticket any time before the event. Please call or email the ticket office to arrange a change to your tickets.

Flexibility is key! All exchanges and refunds are fee free through the 2022-23 season.

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.

* Some special events and rental events have different prices, fees, or return/exchange policies, which will be listed on the online event webpage.
