Does my two-month/two-year-old child need a ticket?

Yes. Due to local fire codes, every person needs a ticket, regardless of whether or not they will be sitting in a seat or on a lap. The only exception to this is that infants up to 12 months old will be admitted free to Flynn-presented family matinee performances, specifically designated in the season brochure. Other promoters will generally specify their policies regarding children. If there is no specific text with the performance that says children under a certain age are admitted free, you should expect to buy a ticket for all members of your party.


How much are the service fees? What are they for?

The Flynn is a nonprofit organization and we charge fees to help defer the cost of doing business. A 12% processing fee is added to all ticket orders. This fee allows the Flynn to cover the infrastructure costs for processing web orders, as well as the costs of staffing and upkeep of the phone system.


What taxes are added to ticket purchases?

Ticket purchases typically incur a 9% sales tax which is added at checkout on top of the price of the tickets. This 9% sales tax includes a 7% State of Vermont sales tax and a 2% City of Burlington sales tax.


Why does the Flynn ask for my address and phone when I purchase tickets?

If you’re paying with a check or credit card, our system requires that we have address and telephone information to protect our customers against fraud. We also are unique in that we will replace lost tickets for Flynn-presented performances; to do that, we need to collect this information so we have a record of the sale. Finally, if there is ever a cancellation or change to a performance, particularly a date or time change, we need to be able to contact you.


What if I want my tickets shipped to a different address?

While checking out on the Flynn site, select mail as your delivery method and click continue. In the next section, you will enter your “Delivery Address.” You may enter a different delivery address here.


When and how should I expect to receive my tickets?

Once you have placed your order, you will receive a confirmation email immediately then within 5 minutes a ticket email  from that includes your tickets as a printable PDF.  If you select will call instead, your tickets will be held at the box office at 153 Main Street in Burlington to be picked up on the night of the performance.

Will you use my phone number, email, or mailing address for direct marketing or sell them to other organizations?

We are required to collect certain information on our website when you order tickets or make a contribution, but we also request additional information so that we can tailor the online experience. You have the option of indicating your interest preferences (jazz, dance, etc.) and we use that information to suggest performances you may be interested in, and to mail you relevant information. You may choose not to submit this information. You may also customize your email and mail preferences to identify how you would like us to communicate with you. The Flynn does not sell or rent names, postal addresses, phone numbers, or email addresses. Read our privacy policy for more information.


Why are there tickets available for a higher price on other websites?

The Flynn does not provide tickets to other sellers, with the exception of occasional partnerships with nonprofit organizations as fundraisers. Tickets purchased from other sources are purchased at your own risk. We urge patrons to purchase tickets through us only. Tickets available on other websites are usually sold by ticket scalpers who charge inflated prices. By purchasing through us, you are assured that the ticket you receive is valid and is being sold to you at face value.


May I resell my ticket if I cannot use it?

You may resell your ticket for the face value of the ticket price. The Flynn Box Office does not condone the secondary sale of tickets for a value exceeding the purchase price and reserves the right not to do business with any individual known to engage in this practice.
