WE LOVE GROUPS
Groups are especially welcome at the Kravis Center. There’s no better way to reward or thank clients, employees, civic organizations, clubs, religious groups, friends or whomever, than with a show-stopping performance at this world-class venue. Large or small, get your group together and take advantage of the personalized service and special ticket discounts that will make you a hero. Group discounts are available for most Kravis Center presentations. For more information, call Group Sales at 561-651-4304 or 561-651-4438 or visit kravis.org/groupsales
STUDENT & EDUCATOR RUSH TICKET PROGRAM
In addition to providing educational opportunities through the arts, the Kravis Center has deepened its commitment to make select self-initiated presentations even more accessible to students and educators. By presenting a student or educator ID at the Kravis Center Box Office one hour prior to the performance, students/educators will receive 50% off any section ticket (excluding Premium Seating and Kravis On Broadway presentations) from orchestra to rear balcony, based on availability. For more information and specific prices, please call the Box Office at 561-832-7469.

REFUNDS AND EXCHANGES
Kravis Center policy prohibits refunds and exchanges on tickets. All sales are final. Tickets for Kravis Center presentations that you are unable to use may be donated to the Kravis Center’s annual fund as a tax-deductible contribution, provided they are returned to the Box Office at least 24 hours in advance of the performance.
For Kravis On Broadway presentations, we are not able to accept tickets for a tax deductible contribution due to contractual restrictions. However, Kravis On Broadway subscribers can exchange tickets for another performance of the same show, if they are available. Return your tickets to the Box Office prior to the opening night of the show.
Lobby doors open approximately ninety minutes prior to the announced performance time. Theatre doors open thirty minutes prior to curtain. Latecomers will be seated at the discretion of management.
A performance at the Kravis Center can be a truly uplifting experience for all of our guests and for the performers as well. Following are two tips that will maximize everyone’s enjoyment.
Silence is golden when it comes to cell phones.
Please silence all watches with alarms, beepers, cell phones and other electronic devices prior to the performance and again after intermission. Some electronic devices can cause interference with our performance sound system. Please refrain from texting during performances, as the glow from your device is distracting.
It isn’t over till it’s over.
A quick departure is noticed by everyone in the audience and especially by the performers on stage. Why ruin the experience for those around you in an effort to save a few minutes going to your car? Leaving early also means you’ll miss any encores and curtain calls.
Any guest who poses a health or sanitary risk; disturbs other guests; causes damage to Kravis Center property; or does not cooperate with Kravis Center staff when asked to follow operational policies, will be asked to leave the venue.
In compliance with the Florida Clean Indoor Air Act, Section 386.201 of Florida Statutes, the Kravis Center is a non-smoking facility. Smoking, however, is permitted outside of the building in the various public areas.

The Kravis Center will provide open captioning for all Saturday matinee performances of Kravis On Broadway presentations. Intended to allow deaf or hard of hearing audience members to more fully enjoy Broadway performances, Live Performance Captioning (or open captioning) is a text display located on either side of the stage that scrolls words in synchronization with the performance. Specially reserved seats for people with hearing loss will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Those in need of the service should alert the box office when ordering tickets.
