Grunin Center for the Arts, its Ticket Office and website are the only authorized distributors of tickets for Grunin Center for the Arts performances. While tickets purchased through secondary marketplaces and ticket resellers may be valid tickets, the Grunin Center cannot guarantee their authenticity or admission. Please use discretion if you decide to purchase tickets through a ticket reseller.

1. All ticket sales are final. There are no refunds.

2. There is no compensation if you miss a performance or cannot attend a future performance.

3. Prices, dates, times, performers, and performances are subject to change at any time. Such changes do not dictate a refund or exchange unless authorized by the producer, promoter, or Grunin Center for the Arts.

4. Inclement weather happens and the safety of our guests is our top priority. However, performances are rarely cancelled due to weather. If you are concerned about attending a performance due to inclement weather, please call the Grunin Center at 732 255-0500.

1. Grunin Center for the Arts Donors and Subscription Ticket Holders are able to exchange their tickets to another performance, within the same season and subscription category, up to 24 hours in advance of the original tickets. If the new ticket is more expensive than the original, the guest is responsible for the difference. There is no refund if the Donor or Subscription Ticket Holder exchanges into a less expensive ticket.

2. If you are not a Grunin Center Subscription Ticket Holder, donor, or sponsor, all ticket sales are final with no refunds or exchanges. Call the Grunin Center Ticket Office with questions on becoming a Subscriber, donor, and the other benefits that come with supporting Grunin Center for the Arts.

How do I receive a group discount?

To inquire about whether a group discount is available for a show you are interested in, please contact Education and Community Engagement Coordinator Jaclyn Wood.

Group Sale Payments

Ticket payment is due at time of booking. For group packages over $500, we can invoice your group and you can pay later. A 50% deposit is due within 2 weeks of invoice date, with the final payment due 30 days prior to the show. If full payment is not received 30 days prior to performance, tickets will be released if ticket demand warrants; we will contact your group leader prior to releasing any tickets.

The Grunin Center accepts cash or credit card for payments. Group Leaders can pay at the Box Office or (in the case of credit card payments), over the phone. For payment of invoices, checks may also be mailed to the Grunin Center or delivered to the Box Office. We do not accept personal checks, but Group Leaders can pay with organizational checks.

There are no refunds on deposits or full payment.

Group reservations made less than 30 days prior to the performance must be paid in full upon ordering.

Important Details

Over-booking is strongly discouraged. Please contact us immediately if you find a change in the number of tickets you will be requiring. Once a partial payment is entered into our ticketing system, we are limited on the changes we can make to your order and we cannot refund money for tickets that have been paid for. The group leader may add tickets at any time as long as tickets are available. In order to receive the group discount, we ask that only the group leader call to add on to an order.

The Group Leader is responsible for delivering tickets to members of their group. You may do it ahead of time, or plan to meet your group members in our lobby to hand out tickets. If you wish to hand out your tickets in advance of the show, we encourage group leaders to fill in the Seat Assignment Form as you distribute tickets, so that you know who is sitting in each seat. Please request the Seat Assignment Form when picking up your tickets from the Box Office. To ensure that multiple tickets are not printed for the same seat, our Box Office staff can only reprint tickets for the group leader who placed the order. Once tickets have been printed, we cannot change seat locations.


To book a group package, please contact Jaclyn Wood, Education and Community Engagement Coordinator at jwood@ocean.edu or 732-255-0400 x 2487
