What happens with my tickets?

When performances are rescheduled, your tickets will be good for the new date. You only need to contact us if you cannot attend.

If a show has to be canceled, patrons with tickets will be contacted. The options for your tickets are:

  • Donate the full amount of your tickets, or even a portion of your total, to support the missions of Walton Arts Center or SoNA. As nonprofit arts organizations, we rely on the audiences we serve for financial support. By donating your tickets, you will provide vital support for the performing arts that inspire and enrich our community. 100 percent of the money donated will fund arts education programming - this does not count toward your Friends donations.
  • Receive a ticketing credit on your account that can be used in the 2020/21 season.
  • Receive a refund.

For now, if the show is listed as suspended, please hold tight. We will contact you when we have more information.

Thank you for your continued support, patience and understanding.
