Information for Ticket Holders to Cancelled Performances

The Joffrey is currently processing a high volume of ticketing requests. Based on the extent of those requests, we have determined that the best course of action is to provide full refunds. Refunds may take up to 20 business days to appear in your account.

We invite you to re-purchase tickets for an upcoming performance of The Nutcracker with the knowledge that your refund is on its way. Performances will resume tomorrow, December 19, and continue through December 26. Though your previous seating and/or price level may not be available, we still hope you will join us for this magical holiday production.

The Joffrey’s Patrons Services team has received an overwhelming amount of emails and calls. Unfortunately, due to our small Patron Services team, we are unable to respond to all previously sent emails or voicemails.

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we navigate these unique circumstances.
