Arena Theater is what is known as a black box theater. A black box theater allows for different stage and audience configurations. Because of this, Arena Theater is General Admission. And because of the size of our theater, there is not a bad seat in the house.

The best way to see an entire Arena Theater season is with season tickets. A season ticket gives you one ticket to each play on the night of your choosing. These are packaged together and you receive a 10% discount on each ticket. It also allows you to get your tickets to your preferred performance before they sell out.

Refunds and Exchanges
There are no refunds for tickets. Tickets may be exchanged for another performance up to 24 hours prior to either the new or old performance, whichever comes first.
The waiting list opens one hour prior to each sold out performance. You must be present to get on the waiting list and may only sign up for two tickets per person present. If seats are available, tickets will begin to be released 10 minutes prior to curtain.
Depending on the show there may not be late seating available. Your seats are guaranteed up until 10 minutes before the performance (2pm or 7:30pm). After that, there is no guarantee of seating in that show and there are no refunds for your tickets. If you have other questions, please contact the Box Office at (630) 752-5800.
There is always handicapped access to Arena Theater through the East doors. There is a ramp and handicapped parking on the East side of the theater. Please let a house manager know how they can assist you.
If there are any question about ticket sales, please contact the box office at (630) 752-5800.
