We love it when you want to see many of our performances!  Want to come to every recital, five dance, three jazz, all theater, and a show from our family offerings?  Want to reserve two seats for most performances, but want to bring a friend or three to a few?  With that kind of variety can come some complicated orders, so we advise that if you have questions about the best arrangement of your performances into packages and add-on single tickets, it may be better to do this over the phone instead of online. Contact the Ticket Office as our staff is ready to help you navigate the subscription process so that you get the maximum savings, especially when you may have complex needs.

Subscription seating is completed by our Ticket Office on a first-come, first-served basis according to the priority ordering dates. An order received after the priority window closes will receive processing priority on the day it is received, based on the level of giving. Subscription tickets for the 2023–24 season will be emailed in July.

See “How do I get priority seating?” for priority ordering dates.

Single tickets go on sale at noon on the following schedule:

April 21 2023–24 Season Subscribers and Donors of $1,500+

Should you decide you are uncomfortable attending a performance due to health concerns, tickets for the 2023–24 season purchased prior to July 25, 2023, are fully refundable until the Ticket Office closes the business day before the event in question. On the day of the performance, tickets may be exchanged for another event during our 2023–24 season (subject to availability) up to one hour prior to curtain time with no exchange fee. After that time, the value of the tickets may be donated (receipt for donation provided by Cal Performances).

If a performance is canceled or rescheduled, tickets are fully refundable. The value of the tickets for canceled or rescheduled performances may also be donated (receipt provided) or exchanged for another performance during our 2023–24 season.

Current exchange/refund policy updates after July 24, 2023

Based on direct community feedback, industry standards, and public health regulations, Cal Performances no longer requires that all patrons be masked indoors. However, we support and respect each patron’s choice to wear a mask if that is their preference, and ask that all of our patrons remain vigilant in protecting the health of our shared space by staying home if they are feeling unwell. For the most current updates, visit our Health and Safety page.
Season Brochure—if you received a season brochure in the mail, we suggest you have it handy as you choose the shows you want to include in your subscription. The brochure contains full descriptions of all of the shows, organized by genre. It also includes a season calendar listing with ticket prices for every level. If you didn’t receive a brochure, you can download a PDF of it, or request that one be sent to you.

The 2023–24 Season page allows you to browse the season lineup online. You can view the entire season, or filter by genre and date. For each event, you’ll see a link where you can “learn more,” which will take you to the event details page.

The event details page provides additional information about the show, including more photos and videos, the program (if available), and the available subscription packages.
