Can’t make a performance? Music Hall members at any level may return their tickets to the Box Office up to 48 hours before the event to receive a credit for the value of the tickets towards future ticket purchases. Credits are valid for 12 months after they are issued; after that time they are automatically transferred to support The Music Hall’s Gift the Gift of Magic program. Individuals whose ticket credit is converted into supporting GGM will be recognized in the Season Playbill.

The Music Hall reserves the right to update the exchange policy. There are no refunds unless the show is canceled. When shows are canceled, non-member patrons have the option to receive a refund or make a donation. Members can receive a ticket credit.

Patron Services @ The B2W Box Office Makes It Easy

Today, more and more theaters are turning to corporate ticketing agencies to manage their box office operations off-site. Bucking this national trend, The Music Hall is committed to maintaining a full-service in-house box office. What does that mean for you as a patron?

First and foremost, our staff will help you select seats that are best for what you desire and provide you with the information you need to know. Second, they live here in the Seacoast so they can provide directions and recommend local restaurants, hotels, places to park, and other area attractions. Third, our staff can mail your tickets at no extra charge, which is a great convenience since many other theaters charge for shipping tickets. Fourth, if The Music Hall used an outside ticketing agency, fees would be much higher and you’d likely pay double.
