We’re so glad you’re joining us for an event and we can’t wait to see you! If this is your first time to one of our shows or events, you may have a few questions for us. We hope you’ll find your answer in our frequently asked questions below, but feel free to give us a shout if you don’t!
Our system allows refunds up until 5 p.m. on the day before the first showing begins. Once we’ve arrived to production day, there will be no refunds. For example, if a production’s dates are Nov. 8-24, then you’ll need to request your refund no later than Nov. 7, 5 p.m. To request a refund, please contact the Cultural Center office at 864.335.4862 or [email protected].
We will hold your seats for 15 minutes after show time. If you have not arrived within those 15 minutes, your seats will be forfeited without reimbursement, exchange, or refund. Should you make it within those fifteen minutes, you may enter and take your seats unless an usher is outside with different directions.
