Patron Services & Benefits

The Colony Theatre provides many services to our patrons.


You may exchange tickets using the following options: Via Telephone: Can't attend your regular subscription performance? Call our Box Office at (818) 558-7000, ext. 15. We'll help you find a date that works better for you. If something comes up at the last minute, call us up to 15 minutes before the performance, and we'll gladly exchange your tickets for a small fee of $1.50. (Subscribers get free ticket exchanges.) We can mail your new tickets at no cost to you or, if you prefer, we can hold them for you at Will Call. Performance dates and seating locations are subject to availability. Via Mail: It is not necessary to mail your tickets to us. Save your stamp! However, if it's easier for you to exchange your tickets through the mail, just send us a note with your name and ticket change request. Via Fax: You can also fax your name and change request to us at (818) 558-7110. At the Box Office: You may make your ticket exchange at the Box Office any time during regular Box Office hours, which are Tuesdays through Saturdays, from noon to 6 pm.


There is ample free parking located inside the East Parking Garage. Enter the East Parking Garage on Third Street between Magnolia and Cypress and follow the signs above to The Colony Theatre. Here's more detailed information about parking and directions.


The Colony Theatre is ADA compliant. If you are in a wheelchair and unable to transfer, cannot climb stairs, or require other special seating, please let the Box Office staff know at the time of purchase. Assisted Listening Devices are available on a "first come, first served" basis in the lobby on the day of your performance. Our listening devices are not compatible with other hearing aid devices.


Refreshments are available one hour prior to each performance, as well as during intermission of each show. We offer a variety of baked goods, as well as an assortment of candies and mints at our concessions counter, located in our spacious and comfortable lobby. Coffee, water and sodas are also available.


If you are unable to attend a show, please consider giving your tickets to a friend or family member who may enjoy the performance. (There is no need to give them the tickets. We can reprint them at Will Call.) If you prefer, you may donate your tickets to The Colony Theatre for resale. Tickets may be donated for resale by phone up to 15 minutes before curtain time. The value of your tickets will be acknowledged as a charitable contribution.


DON'T WORRY! We offer FREE ticket replacement for all lost or destroyed tickets - even if you arrive at the theatre and discover you've left them at home. No need to call us - just show up before the performance, and we'll re-print your tickets.

The Colony Pledge
A Note From Our Artistic Director

How many times have you seen this sign at a box office?

Examine your tickets carefully before leaving the windows. There will be absolutely no refunds or exchanges.

...because what it's really saying is "Be sure you don't get sick, or have a last-minute family emergency, or car trouble on the way to the theatre. Now that we have your money, we don't care.

Here's another one I saw recently in a season brochure:

Play titles and schedule subject to change without notice. Subscription sales are NON - REFUNDABLE!


...because what they are saying is: "We don't have to live up to our commitment to you because we've got your money."

Are we missing something here? Are theatres doing so well that they can afford to drive people away like this?

Of course not. These days we are constantly hearing that audiences are dwindling and theatres are struggling to survive. Yet unfriendly warnings at the point of purchase continue to be standard in our world.

Not so at the Colony. We understand that life isn't always predictable. Things happen. And sometimes they happen on the date and time stamped on your tickets.

This is not a problem.

If something comes up and you can't make it, give us a call even if it's only fifteen minutes before the performance. We'll happily book you another date (if you're not a subscriber there is a very small service fee). If we can't find a performance that works in your schedule, we'll give you credit for a tax-deductible donation. If none of these options appeal, we'll give you a refund.

If you subscribe and, partway through the season, something happens in your life that makes it impossible for you to continue -- or even if you just decide our shows are not for you -- we'll refund the balance of your subscription, no questions asked.

We want you to come to our shows, and we don't want you to worry that you might be disappointed -- for whatever reason -- when you hand us your money.

That's a promise.
