  • Why are reservations made in packages this year?

    • We've decided to opt for packages this year for a number of reasons, all of which prioritize safety while maximizing performer and audience experience and convenience. Some new perks this year include securing seats in socially-distanced groups of 3 ​and livestreaming to family & friends who are unable to attend.

    • Additionally, each year we place separate orders for DVD's and performer t-shirts. Many of our families place these orders or want to purchase t-shirts at the Follies, which means they spend their intermission waiting in line and hoping we haven't sold out of their performer's size shirt. By including a downloadable video recording, performer shirt, and performer pin in each package, we can ensure that every dancer has a token to remember their hard work and each family has the convenience of placing one order without having to wait in line. 

  • ​Can I reserve an individual ticket instead of a package?
    • All seats must be reserved through a package. This ensures that each performer can have family in the audience while prioritizing safety and achieving adequate social distancing.

  • Can I reserve an additional ticket with my package?

    • At this time, families may not reserve more than 3 tickets per show. ​

  • I need more tickets than I am able to reserve--what do I do?​

    • Each package includes a livestream link to share with family & friends from afar! Each package also includes a video recording of the show made available by downloadable link for you to enjoy for years to come. ​

  • Does my toddler require a ticket?​

    • ​ All persons ages 3 and older must have a ticket. We must adhere to this strictly to make sure that attendee totals are compliant with CDC guidelines. 

  • I reserved a VIP package and I don't need all 3 seats to one or more of my shows. What should I do?​

    • Please let us know! You will be able to indicate how many seats you would like at each show.

    • We will not offer refunds for individual seats within a package.

  • How does payment work? 

    • You may elect to have us charge your credit card on file.
