What time do shows begin at OCT?
Evening performances begin at 7:30pm; matinees are at 2:00pm. Due to the nature of our venue, there is no late seating.
When can I purchase tickets online?
Online ticket sales for individual productions close two hours prior to curtain (5:30pm for evening shows, and 12:00pm for matinees). After that time, tickets are available in-person at our Box Office, located at 194 W Broadway.
Season subscriptions and individual tickets for the upcoming season will be available for purchase in mid-summer.
Are there handling fees when I purchase OCT tickets?
Tickets ordered on the phone and online are subject to a $2 per ticket handling fee. Subscribers and Pass holders pay a flat $10.00 handling fee with their purchase, which covers the cost of any exchanges for the entirety of the season. Ticket purchases made in person at the Box Office do not incur a handling fee.
What happens if I am late for a show?
To maintain the intimacy of our theatre, no late seating is permitted. You may wait until intermission to be seated, but your original seating cannot be guaranteed.
What if I cannot attend a show I have already purchased tickets for?
OCT does not offer refunds on purchased tickets; all sales are final. Subscribers may exchange their tickets as late as 24 hours prior to the scheduled performance; tickets may only be exchanged for a different evening of the same production. (Pass holders may exchange tickets to another regular season show at no extra cost.) You may also contact our Box Office if you wish to gift your tickets that evening to a friend or family member.
Inclement Weather Policy Performances at Oregon Contemporary Theatre are rarely canceled due to weather conditions. Refunds are not issued if the show is performed as scheduled. We encourage everyone to think about their safety first and provide themselves with extra travel time if they are traveling during inclement weather. The Theatre will make every effort to notify you in case of a cancellation.
If a show is canceled, customers may exchange their tickets to another performance in a multi-performance run (subject to availability) or request a credit on their account. Oregon Contemporary Theatre has a no refund policy. Unused tickets may be returned in advance of the performance for credit as a tax-deductible charitable contribution.
