Why is there an 8-year-old age limit?
Even though this is a "clean" show, it is for the "young at heart", not the young. Shows are for audiences 8 years and older. We do not offer booster seats so if height is an issue, we suggest raised or tiered seating. OR, here's your excuse to get a babysitter and have a fun kid-free night out just for YOU!
What is the cost of tickets?
Pricing depends on location and availability so click a location and time above. There is a per ticket service fee of $4.00 for Tucson, $4.50 for Phoenix, plus appropriate city and state taxes. (Sorry we can't make those disappear!) Tickets purchased in advance may cost less than shows nearly sold out. Pricing does not include beverages or meals but does include a souvenir playbill and hand-printed tickets as your entry to a magical evening!
How do I buy Gift Certificates?
GIFT CERTIFICATES for PHOENIX or TUCSON can be purchased for the person who has everything! BONUS: Gift certificates are not date specific allowing your guest to select the date AND location that works best for their schedule.
