Ticket Purchase Policy

The Cultural Connection sells tickets on behalf of promoters, venues and event planners. The Cultural Connection does not have any role whatsoever in setting the ticket prices, determining seating locations or availability of tickets. Policies set by our clients prohibit us from issuing exchanges or refunds after a purchase has been made. Upon completion of your credit card authorization, a confirmation will be sent directly to you at the email address you provided and to the theatre to which you subscribed with your payment. Bring the same credit card used for purchase to the Will-Call ticket counter to claim your tickets for that evening's show. Cut off time for purchasing online tickets is 5:00 PM on the day of the performance. Events may be cancelled or postponed by the promoter, performer or venue for a variety of reasons. The Cultural Connection is not responsible for any such cancellations or postponements. If the event is cancelled, please contact the Cultural Connection for information on receiving a refund from the responsible party, info@culturalconnection.org

Payment Method

Which Credit Cards can I use to make a purchase?

The Cultural Connection accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

 

Can I purchase more tickets for an event using the same credit card?

The Cultural Connection accepts only one purchase per credit card per event, with a limit of 8 tickets maximum. If you already bought tickets for an event, you cannot make an additional purchase for that event using the same credit card. The Cultural Connection instituted this policy in order to protect customers from accidentally making more than one purchase for a single event. As a protection to the subscriber and the Cultural Connection, the credit card used for purchase must be presented to the Will-Call Window on the Same-Day to make a printed impression of your card information. This impression will not be used for any other purpose than for positive identification and filing of the imprint for protection and verification in processing the transaction.
