Ticket Fee Policy

Tickets are subject to a $2 order fee for credit card processing and $2 facility fee for events taking place at FringeArts . This helps us maintain the high quality of our theater space and maximize our box office efficiency. We thank you in advance for generously supporting progressive, world-class art in Philadelphia!

For tickets under $15, the order fee is only $1, and both fees are waived for FringeACCESS members as part of the ACCESS Philly Program. Tickets purchased in cash do not incur an order fee, but are subject to the $2 facility fee.

For ticket subscriptions, we offer the benefit of discounted fees. A subscription purchase includes a $2 processing fee per ticket, plus a $2 facility fee per order. While an order of 6 individual tickets would incur $26 in fees ($4 per show), a six-show subscription only incurs $14 ($2 per show + one $2 facility fee).

How to Use Your E-Tickets

There are no tickets to pick up. Bring your ticket as a print out or display the QR code on your smartphone or tablet. Tickets are required at the door.

Seating Policy

Seating for all shows is on a first-come, first-served basis. Latecomers are seated at the discretion of the house manager. Some shows do not allow late seating, so arrive early!

Refund Policy

FringeArts does not offer refunds on ticket purchases. Exchanges are offered for free to current members and Producers’ Circle members and for $2 per ticket for non-members. Exchanges can only be made before the ticketed performance has begun and only for a different performance of the same show.

Performance Disruption Policy

Any patrons intentionally disturbing other audience members and disrupting the performance will be asked kindly by our volunteers and House Manager to please refrain. If the disturbance continues, that patron will be escorted out of the performance. FringeArts does not offer refunds on ticket purchases.

Weather Policy

Inclement weather is not a cause for ticket refunds unless a performance is actually cancelled. In the event that FringeArts cancels a performance for any reason, every effort will be made to notify ticket holders as soon as possible. As always, members may exchange tickets up to 24 hours before performance time by emailing or calling 215.413.1318.
