An Important Word on Ticketing Fees
There are two places through which you can buy tickets for our productions – the Tacoma Opera offices and the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts.
The first way to get tickets for our productions is to purchase them through the Tacoma Opera offices via phone (253-627-7789), M-F from 10 am to 4 pm. For this service, there is a fee of $2.50 per ticket, to a maximum of $20 per order. NOTE: The Tacoma Opera office stops taking ticket orders the Wednesday before Opening Night. After that, all tickets must be ordered through the Broadway Center.
The other way to get tickets for our productions is through the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts, which manages the theaters in which we perform. They charge different handling fees on top of the ticket price, depending on how the tickets are ordered.
- If you buy tickets through the BCPA box office, either in person or by phone (253-591-5894), there is a fee of $4.00 per ticket.
- If you purchase your tickets online through the BCPA, there is a variable fee of $4.00-$8.50 per ticket.
