Theater Rules

Tickets are valid only for the event, date, time and seat indicated. Tickets purchased over the phone and on the web are subject to handling charges. In some instances, tickets purchased with a credit card at the box office may also be subject to fees. Tickets are not refundable unless the performance is canceled by NJPAC. Each person entering the theater must have a valid ticket including babes-in-arms. Patrons not in their seat at the start of a performance or who exit a performance may be subject to a delayed entrance. In some instances, delayed seating may not take place until intermission. Late seating times are established by each artist working with our house management staff. Artists, dates, times, venues and programs are subject to change. The use of audio and video recording devices of all types and the taking of still photos are not permitted inside the theater and during performances. Such activity may be a violation of copyright laws. As a courtesy to both the artists and other audience members, please silence cell phones and messaging devices and refrain from electronic communication during performances.

Food is not permitted inside the theater. Beverages may be permitted for certain performances. NJPAC recommends that children under the age of five not attend adult performances. Management reserves the right to remove individuals creating a disturbance without compensation for the cost paid for tickets.

Backpacks, suitcases, bags (excluding handbags) may not be taken into the theaters. They must be left at coat check, or when coat check is not open, with house management. Items may be checked free of charge. NJPAC reserves the right to inspect backpacks, suitcases, and bags when being checked. In some instances, NJPAC may require the inspection of all handbags and cases at point of entry to the theater lobbies. Persons with diaper bags entering the theater are subject to search at the discretion of security.

NJPAC is accessible to persons with disabilities. Persons with disabilities are advised to contact NJPAC Ticket Services at 1-888-MY-NJPAC (1-888-696-5722) before making their ticket purchase.
