  • To help ensure the safety of our audiences during the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that if you are sick and unable to attend a performance, you contact the box office for your options. You may exchange tickets, due to illness, up to 24 hours before an event. All ticket exchange fees and processes, outlined below, apply.

  • Tickets with ‘Mail Now’ delivery will not be mailed until one (1) month before the performance date. Tickets with Mail Later will not be delivered until two (2) weeks before the performance. If you have made your order within the month window, your tickets will be mailed out within the next two (2) business days. We are experiencing higher than usual mail delivery delays due to USPS.

No refunds, exchanges or credits are allowed for events missed because of outdated contact information.



  • Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts electronically scans tickets for entry into its venues. This process helps prevent ticketing and seating problems that may cause delays or lines.
  • The scanning system reads unique barcodes printed on each ticket to ensure that the ticket is valid and to record attendance. When exchanging or reprinting a ticket, the barcode is deactivated, making the original ticket invalid for admission.
