TICKET POLICY.

Can I get reimbursed if I decide not to attend a performance and I have already paid for my ticket?

All Subscription and Ticket sales are final and there will be no refunds. However, you can exchange your tickets and/or get credit for another performance within the season. Tickets to online events are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged.

What happens if I arrive late at the theatre for a performance?

Those who arrive after the show has started will be seated in the back of the venue, and may return to their reserved seats during intermission.

 

What should I do if I am going to miss my scheduled performance or need to exchange tickets?

You can exchange your tickets free of charge and reserve seats for another performance up to 24 hours before the performance originally scheduled. Call 202-234-7174 to exchange your tickets.

 

Are there any date restrictions on ticket exchanges?

The only restriction on ticket exchanges are for tickets to Noche de GALA and/or Press Opening, which occurs only once: the first Saturday evening of each main stage production. 

 

What if I missed my show and forgot to exchange my tickets?

If you have missed the 24-hour notice deadline to exchange your tickets, you can still see the show on a space-available basis. To make these arrangements:

  • Call 202-234-7174 on the day of your scheduled show to let us know you won't be attending.

  • On the day of the performance that you wish to attend in lieu of your original date, call 202-234-7174 to check seating availability. We are not able to reassign you seats at this time, but can provide you information about current ticket availability. 

  • Show up at the Box Office at least half hour before curtain time. Once all the ticketed patrons are seated, you will be seated in any remaining empty seats on a space-available basis.


RUSH TICKET Policy: GALA has a limited quantity of tickets available at a discounted price for some shows only. Please call the Box Office for more information about rush ticket availability.  

GENERAL INFORMATION.

Can I enjoy your productions even if I’m not fluent in Spanish?

Absolutely! GALA provides easy-to-follow English translations through a system of projected surtitles. We choose only the best and most readable translations, often commissioning our own, then adapt each translation, line by line, to ensure a well-paced, concise, and accurate set of surtitles that perfectly complement the performances. Don’t forget our exciting musical productions, which transcend all languages.

Is the theatre accessible for people with disabilities?
Yes, GALA has 4 wheelchair accessible spaces and an elevator to transport people from the entrance to the lobby, and to the house.

 

Beyond GALA performances, how can I get involved?

GALA provides many opportunities for involvement, including acting, employment, internships, exhibiting, and volunteering. Please click here for more information.
