Holding Tickets

Receipt of Tickets

USPS Mail – Tickets will be mailed first class USPS and placed in outgoing mail the next business day.  Please plan for your tickets to arrive to you within 5-10 days from the time of your ticket order.  If the date of the performance is 5 business days or less from the date of the ticket purchase, your tickets will be placed at our Box Office “will call” window.    

Will-Call – If your tickets are being held for you at “will call,” you may be requested to show a photo ID in order to claim your tickets. 

Mobile – Tickets will be delivered to your mobile device.

Internet Orders – Internet ticket orders can be placed up to two hours prior to the start of the performance.  For tickets ordered over the internet for a future performance, please allow 1 business day before your tickets are available for pick-up at the Luhrs Center Box Office.  

Revocable License

A ticket (including paper and electronic equivalents) is a revocable license subject to termination and may be revoked at the sole discretion of the Luhrs Center.

Exchanges and Refunds
Please note that all ticket sales are final. No refunds or exchanges will be given under any circumstance unless an event is cancelled or rescheduled (see below).  Internet fees and mailing fees are not refundable under any circumstances.

Performance Content
The Luhrs Center does not rate performer content or make a judgement about the suitability of a performance unless the performer informs the Luhrs Center that the performance may not be suitable for all age groups.  The Luhrs Center strongly urges ticket buyers to be informed about the performers/performances for which they are purchasing tickets.  Performer content is not a reason for a ticket exchange or refund.

Performance Cancellation or Postponement

In the event that a performance is cancelled or rescheduled, every effort will be made to contact patrons via letter, email or phone as soon as the cancellation/postponement is announced and will communicate available ticket refund options. 

If an event is cancelled, patrons will be refunded the amount of the tickets; however, the Luhrs Center does not refund the handling/mailing or internet fees related to the ticket purchase.  Please note that inclement weather is not cause for a refund or exchange unless the performance is actually cancelled or postponed. A cancellation or postponement notice will also be posted on the Luhrs Center Web site located at www.luhrscenter.com.  Please note that oftentimes the decision to reschedule a cancelled event is up to the artist and promoter and not necessarily the host venue.

If an event is rescheduled, patrons will be contacted by the Luhrs Center box office via letter, email or phone and provided with information about the various ticket refund/exchange options. 

Replacement of Tickets

If your tickets have been lost, damaged, or stolen, please contact the Luhrs Center box office at 717.477.SHOW (7469) for assistance prior to the performance date if possible.
