A message to our patrons regarding COVID-19

General Children's Theater/Bridge Theater Series Policies

All ticket sales are final. Subscription tickets may be exchanged in advance for the same show at a different location or performance time as space allows.

Not all venues have been confirmed for the Children's Theater Series regional performances and previously announced venues are subject to change. All venue locations will be confirmed late summer 2019; please visit our website for the most up-to-date location information.

Doors to the theater open 30 minutes before the performance, barring any technical difficulties.

All seating is general admission. A section of the theater is reserved for Partner Members. Partner Members are donors who contribute $100 or more (in addition to ticket purchases) to the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust on an annual basis. The Partner seating section features preferred seating which is held until 5 minutes before curtain or at the discretion of the management.

Children under 2 are free.If they are able to sit on an adult's lap for the Children's Theater Series - no ticket needed! The Bridge Theater Series is recommended for ages 7+ and children under 3 will not be admitted.

Flex Ticket Policies & Guidelines

Flex Tickets can be exchanged for show tickets to any available Children's Theater Series, Bridge Theater Series, and Children's Theater Festival performance during the 2018-2019 season. 

In order to ensure that everyone has a seat at the show, we recommend Flex Tickets be redeemed for tickets at least 5 business days prior to the performance you wish to attend. Vouchers that are not exchanged in advance may be used at the door on show days as space allows.

Some Children's Theater and Bridge Theater performances do sell out, so be sure to redeem vouchers in advance to guarantee seats. Until they are redeemed for show tickets, vouchers do not guarantee seating.

Vouchers are not valid for Season Specials or other family programming in the Cultural District.
