What is your photo/recording policy?

Non-professional, non-flash, still photography is permitted at most events.  However, for some events, at the request of the artist/performer, photography of any type may be prohibited.  On show days, any adjusted policy will be advertised on signs at the entrance to the venue.

Audio recording devices, flash photography, professional photography equipment (such as those cameras with interchangeable lenses) are not permitted without express written consent.

American Music Theatre reserves the right to confiscate any photo or recording device if policy signs are ignored.  Patrons found possessing professional equipment not expressly authorized will be asked to leave their cameras in their vehicles, or will otherwise be escorted from the venue.  This policy will be strictly enforced and management reserves the right to deny any electronic device at their discretion.

What is your bad weather cancellation policy?

AMT Original Shows – If an AMT Original Show is presented as scheduled, ticket holders may exchange their tickets for another date during the run of that same show. Ticket holders must contact the Box Office prior to the start of their original ticketed performance in order to make an exchange.

On the slight chance we do cancel an Original Show due to bad weather, ticket holders will be notified and a message will be posted on our website.  Ticket holders will have the option of exchanging their tickets for another date during the run of that same show.

Celebrity Concerts – Per contractual obligations, if the artist/band arrives at AMT and is able to perform, the show will go on as scheduled and tickets will remain non-refundable and non-exchangeable.  If a show is canceled or postponed due to the artist/band’s inability to travel, the ticket-purchaser will be notified with the reschedule date or ticket refund information.  Please note, AMT is only able to contact individuals who have purchased tickets from AMT and have provided an email address or phone number at the point of purchase.

What are your General Refund and Exchange Policies?

Celebrity Concert tickets are FINAL SALE and are NON-REFUNDABLE and NON-EXCHANGEABLE

All AMT Original Show tickets are NON-REFUNDABLE, but are EXCHANGEABLE, as follows:

  • Christmas Show tickets may be exchanged for another Christmas Show performance date and time for a $3 per ticket exchange fee
  • AMT Original Show tickets must be exchanged PRIOR to the performance date and time for which guests are currently holding tickets

Does my child need a ticket?

Children age 2 and younger do not need a ticket if they will be seated on an adult’s lap or in a child carrier.  Please note, certain touring concerts may have different policies.  Age verification in the form of a birth certificate or passport will be required at the point of entry for non-ticketed children of questionable age.

Youth tickets are available for AMT Original Shows for guests ages 3-17.

What is your stroller policy?

Due to potential safety hazards, strollers are not permitted in rows or in the aisles.  If a stroller is necessary to transport a child to their seat, an AMT usher will gladly move and store your stroller in the back of the theatre until the end of the show.  For the convenience of others, guests are encouraged to leave strollers at home or in their vehicles prior to arrival at the theatre.

Balcony/Mezzanine Information

Parents of young children are reminded that the front row of our balcony (row AA) has a small barrier, but is otherwise open, and could present a hazard for unattended children. Depending upon the height of the child, the small barrier may impair the view of our stage. We also remind our patrons that our mezzanine level is located on the main floor of the theatre, the same level as our orchestra seating.
