Exchange Tickets

Center for the Performing Arts members, at the Friend and higher levels, may exchange tickets for another Center for the Performing Arts 2021–2022 presentation without paying a service fee. Individual-event ticket buyers who are not eligible members may exchange for another 2021–2022 presentation for a $4-per-ticket fee. If you can’t attend one of the performances for which you purchased tickets, you may return those tickets prior to the presentation and apply the face value toward the purchase of another event.

For Center for the Performing Arts members only: if you’re not sure at the time you return tickets which other performance you want to attend, we’ll hold a credit in your account until you decide. 

Tickets must be returned to the Arts Ticket Center at Eisenhower Auditorium or Penn State Tickets Downtown no later than noon on the day of a weeknight performance or by noon on the Friday before a weekend performance.
