Seating for all CSU Summer Arts events is general admission.

Ticket prices:

  • Regular for adults
  • Discount for seniors (60+), non-CSU Summer Arts students, faculty, and staff
  • Children 12 and under are free. All children are required to have a ticket.
  • Free events are not ticketed and admission is on a first-come, first-seated basis.

Doors open approximately 30 minutes before the start of the event, though this is subject to change.

Please contact the box office in advance of ticket purchase to receive information about the age appropriateness of family events and any public performances.

If you have special access needs (e.g., seating for wheelchairs, sign language interpretation), please let the box office know of your needs at least two weeks in advance of the performance you wish to attend.

Patrons who are unable to attend performances after the purchase of tickets can contact the box office to donate tickets back to CSU Summer Arts in exchange for a letter acknowledging the donation, which is tax-deductible. Tickets can be donated back to CSU Summer Arts only prior to curtain of the specific event.

Ticket sales are final. No exchanges or refunds will be made unless the performance is cancelled.
