Group Ticket Sales apply to the purchase of 10 or more tickets to select ASC-presented performances. To learn more about group sales discounts, please click here.


Protect your purchase with Booking Protect. We offer ticketing insurance at a cost of 7 percent of your ticket price. In order to receive a full refund of the purchase price, you must purchase ticketing insurance. This protects your purchase should you or anyone in your party be unable to attend. If you are a UAB Arts Member, ticketing insurance is included with your membership.


Refunds are available only if: (1) the performance, show, or event has been completely canceled by the ASC, ASO, or UAB’s Department of Music or Theatre with no plans of rescheduling or (2) the Patron has purchased Ticketing Insurance to an ASC presented performance. If the request for refund does not fall within one of the aforementioned examples, all sales on tickets for the ASC, ASO, and UAB Department of Music and Theatre are final.


Exchanges and Credits are available only if: (1) the performance, show, or event has been completely canceled by the ASC, ASO, or UAB Department of Music and Theatre with no plans for rescheduling; or (2) the Patron is an Arts Member, ASO Subscriber, or subscriber to the UAB Department of Music or Theatre.

Requests to exchange tickets must be made within 24 hours of a performance, show, or event. The value of the requested exchange must be equal to the value of the original purchased ticket. If there are no shows at equal value, the patron will be required to pay the difference of the ticket. Remaining balances will be donated back as a gift or contribution. Exchanges and Credits are good only for performances, shows, or events during the current production season. If exchanges are not immediately used, they will be converted to an account credit.

At the end of the current season, all unused account credits will be donated back to either ASC, ASO, or UAB Department of Music or Theatre as gifts or contributions. Documentation can be provided for tax purposes at the end of the year upon request.

ATTENTION: Any patrons with credits from our 2020-21 Season must claim them by July 15, 2022 for our upcoming season or they will be considered a donation.
