Tickets are non-refundable
Tickets to The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati are non-refundable, but if you can’t attend a show you may turn them in to the TCT Box Office before the performance. The value of the returned tickets can be considered a fully tax deductible gift to The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati.
We also encourage you to donate your tickets to Most Valuable Kids of Greater Cincinnati, Inc. MVK overcomes the financial obstacles associated with live events by distributing unused tickets to kids who would enjoy the opportunity to go to an event, but would otherwise not be able to because of the high costs associated with tickets. These tickets are distributed to boys and girls, 18 and under, through local tax-exempt organizations that focus on children in low-income and underserved households. They require 24 hours in advance or by noon on Friday for a Saturday or Sunday performance. For details visit: Most Valuable Kids.
Hosting a Scout troop? Having the relatives in town for the holidays? You can order a block of tickets for your group! Groups of 20 or more qualify for a 10% discount on tickets. All MainStage shows remain at the Taft Theatre in downtown Cincinnati.

While we don’t technically have Gift Certificates available for our MainStage shows, we encourage you to purchase a subscription or Flex Pass instead. On sale now for 2020-2021!
