Why am i being charged a $3 per ticket fee?

The MATCH is a non-profit organization that offers subsidized services to small and midsized arts organizations, including performance venue rental, office space and other associated services such as box office. In order to offer the clients and our patrons the best experience possible we offer the client in-house box office services for only $3 per ticket. These services include website hosting, online ticketing, reporting, and staffing. Unlike other theaters that have service fees of $10 and up, the MATCH is dedicated to keeping our prices reasonable while still providing excellent customer services. The rental client can either include the fee in the total cost of the ticket or they may chose to include it as a fee that appears at checkout.

Late Seating

Some events have a strict NO LATE SEATING policy. This policy will be communicated on the event page when purchasing tickets online, as well as on your email confirmation. We will be unable to seat ticket-holders once the performance has begun. Please plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the performance to ensure enough time to get to your seat. Any unclaimed seats will be released at show time to anyone on a standby list.

For events that do not implement a NO LATE SEATING policy, we cannot guarantee immediate seating after the performance has begun. Latecomers will only be admitted in a suitable break in the performance.

In all scenarios, please plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the performance to ensure enough time to get to your seat.
