How much does it cost per person?
Girl Scout/Scout tickets are $15 per person. For this price, you receive a section “B” ticket, meaning that you will be seated in the best available seats in what is normally priced as the $29-20 section. This ticket price includes a ticket to the Nutcracker performance, and a
Girl Scouts/Scouts  Badge for your Girl Scouts.

Can family members (parents, siblings, grandparents) attend the backstage tour and performance too?
Only girl scouts/scouts can attend the tour. Family and friends can attend the performance at a discounted rate (Children $15, Adults $24, Senior $20)
Only Girl Scouts will receive their badges.

Will the tickets and patches be mailed to me? 
No, you will print your tickets at home and receive patches at the Girl Scouts/Scouts Day at the Girl Scouts/Scouts check-in table on the night of the ballet. The check-in table will open 1hr 30 min prior to the ballet.

Can I purchase my tickets online?
Yes, if you’d like to purchase regular tickets without the tour or patch, you can buy them online, using the promo code below. If you would like tickets, the tour and a patch, please fill out the form below and return it by November 5th. Promo code: 2019Nutcracker

What is the Backstage Tour?
The backstage Tour focuses on educating Girl Scouts about the behind the scenes aspects of our production. They will go on a behind-the-scenes tour of the theatre, and get to see the inner workings of The Nutcracker by viewing sets, costumes, and more! The backstage tour is about 15 minutes long, and the performance is two hours long, which includes a 20-minute intermission.

Are Backstage Tours an extra cost?
No, backstage tours are free for Girl Scouts and not available for siblings and other Family members.

Is there a group minimum or maximum?
No. As long as you are a Girl Scouts, then you may attend and do not necessarily have to attend with your troop.
Either way, you must provide a troop number.

What if the B section is full for the performance I want to attend?
You will receive the next best available seats in another section. We do everything we can to seat your group together, but the sooner you call to place your order, the better!

When can I pick up my badges?
Badges will be distributed to the person who placed the ticket order on the day of the performance, before your workshop. All badges that are not picked up before the workshop begins will be available at the theatre’s lobby tour table.

If I don’t attend a Backstage Tour, will my Girl Scouts still receive a badge?
Yes! Girl Scouts do not have to go on the Backstage Tour in order to receive badges.
