    Pre-paid tickets may be placed in “Will Call” and picked up inside the main theatre doors before a performance.
  • Why is there an online ticketing fee?
    The Palace Theatre uses a computer ticketing system that selects seats for patrons when ordering via the Internet. The online service that we use charges a $5 per ticket fee for each ticket purchased online. This ticketing fee will not apply for tickets purchased at the Box Office or by phone during regular business hours.
  • Can I return my tickets?
    No refunds will be given. Current PCAA members may exchange tickets for a future Palace sponsored performance of the same value or pay any additional charges. Non-Members may exchange tickets for an event within the same season for a $10 per ticket exchange fee. Tickets must be returned to the Box Office at least 7 days in advance of the event. If you are unable to attend the event, please contact the Box Office at (740) 383-2101.
  • What do I do is the show is cancelled?
    In the rare event of a cancellation we will make every effort to notify patrons beforehand, often by telephone. You will be instructed to return your tickets to the Box Office, at which time the price of the tickets will be refunded. If you purchased your tickets with a credit card, your account will be credited. If you purchased your tickets with cash or a check, you will be mailed a refund check. Refunds cannot be processed for cash. Tickets may also be exchanged for another event.
  • What if I cant make it because of weather?
    If the show goes on as scheduled we are contractually obligated to pay the performers. Therefore, we do not offer weather-related refunds.
  • Where are my seats located?
    The Palace Theatre was designed to boast having “every seat with the perfect view”. There are no obstructions for any of the 1424 available seats. There are 5 sections of the theatre on the main floor and 5 sections in the balcony as follows: LEFT MAIN FLOOR – Located beside the wall on the left of the Main Floor LEFT CENTER MAIN FLOOR – Located between Left Main Floor and Center Main Floor sections CENTER MAIN FLOOR – Located in the large center section of the Main Floor RIGHT CENTER MAIN FLOOR – Located between Right Main Floor and Center Main Floor sections RIGHT MAIN FLOOR – Located beside the wall on the right of the Main Floor LEFT BALCONY – Located beside the wall on the left of the Balcony LEFT CENTER BALCONY – Located between Left Balcony and Center Balcony sections CENTER BALCONY – Located in the large center section of the Balcony RIGHT CENTER BALCONY – Located between Right Balcony and Center Balcony sections RIGHT BALCONY – Located beside the wall on the right of the Balcony The rows are lettered from front to back in ascending order (AA, BB, CC, A, B, C, and so on…..). The last row of the theatre is Row X and sits 90 feet from the stage. The first row of the theatre sits 15 feet back from the front of the stage. Row P on the main floor is the first row located underneath the balcony.
  • When do the doors open before a performance?
    As a rule, theatre doors open one hour before a scheduled event. The inner lobby doors open at the discretion of the Palace management, usually 45-60 minutes prior to curtain. Latecomers will be seated at an appropriate break in the performance.
  • Can I meet the artists? Get autographs?
    Occasionally artists will agree to meet with fans after the show in the lobby. Otherwise, audience members are not allowed backstage.
  • Are cameras/recording devices allowed at the performance?
    The use of flash photography, video and audio recorders during performances is strictly prohibited.
  • Where can I park?
    Free parking is available directly behind the theatre and in various municipal lots in the area. Please respect the right of private businesses and organizations and do not park in their lots.
  • Why do you ask for donations beyond ticket costs
    Nearly every weekend patrons can find something to enjoy at the Marion Palace Theatre. However, it takes a great deal of funding to keep a historic theatre running; especially one as active as the Palace where the average monthly utility expense is $5,000. The ongoing operation of the Palace requires far more monies than can be generated through ticket sales to popular performances, films, or our annual summer musical. It is the faithful contributors, who give to secure the future of the theatre, that keep the doors open and the lights on. The Palace Theatre is a 501(c)3, non-profit, tax exempt corporation. Memberships and other donations made to the PCAA are tax-deductible as allowed by IRS code.
  • Why do members get first available seats? How do I become a member?
    One of the benefits of being a member is having the opportunity to select seats for the new season prior to tickets going on sale to the general public. Our membership drive begins in April and the new season is announced in August. Members are sent letters by donation level telling them when they may purchase tickets. You may call or stop in the box office and complete a membership form during box office hours.
