In response to the recent COVID 19 outbreak, and out of deep care and concern for our wonderful community, the Smith has made the difficult decision to close the theater effective Monday, March 15 through at least Sunday, April 12. All scheduled programming during that time is postponed, including Friday’s Town Pants concert. Please take care. We’ll miss you.

Box Office Policies and House Rules

Payment Options

The box office accepts cash, checks with ID and all major credit cards. You may also use Smith Gift Cards for ticket purchases, though any balance must be paid in cash or check. Ticket purchases with Smith Gift Card must be done in the Box Office.

Ticket Service Fees

Our ticket prices may include service fees. These fees help cover the cost of our ticketing service and box office staffing.

No Refunds or Exchanges/Lost Tickets

All ticket sales are final. The only circumstance when a refund for tickets will be allowed is when the Smith Opera House cancels the performance. If you misplace your tickets, call the Box Office. We may be able to reprint them.

Inclement Weather Policy

The Smith Opera House will not issue refunds to patrons who chose not attend a performance or event due to bad weather. When in doubt, call the box office during box office hours (10 am to 4 pm Tuesday through Friday) to confirm a performance. Also, please check our Facebook page.

Late Seating

Late seating of patrons is often disruptive to audience members seated on a timely basis. Therefore, patrons arriving late for a performance may be required to stand or sit in a pre-designated area of the theater until intermission or until an appropriate break allow seating without disruption to the performance and our patron.

ADA Seating

Please tell us your seating needs when ordering tickets for reserved seating shows.

Audio Devices

We do have audio devices to loan out for movies and live events, with the choice of earphones or induction loop. You will need to provide ID during your loan period. The devices are connected to our sound system for movies. If you need an audio device for a live event, please contact the theater in advance during box office hours, 315-781-5483, so we can ensure audio connection.
