Student Matinee Reservation & Payment Policy:

Payment for student matinees must be made in full no later than 30 days prior to your performance date. Adjustments to your reservation may be made up to that point. After 30 days prior, we consider the reservation final and the school will be responsible for full payment.

It is the responsibility of the teacher to be aware of performance dates, times and deadlines related to his or her reservation(s). ETC will not hold the start time of a student matinee because of a tardy group or group members and late seating will be at the discretion of the House Manager. Reservations are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. All plays and dates are subject to change.
