How do I buy tickets for the Nutcracker performances?

Follow this link to purchase tickets. You will be directed to our third party vendor Brown Paper Tickets (BPT).

I want to select my own seats. How can I do that?

Go to the ACB page at Brown Paper Tickets, select a date and the number of tickets. The BPT site will automatically select seats for you. You do not have to take these seats. You can click on "Select Specific Seats" at the bottom of the screen and choose your seats*. If you do this you must "un-click" the seats that BPT originally selected for you. Don't forget to select Sugar Plum Party ($35/$25 tickets) before you check-out. Continue to the check-out screen and confirm that you have the correct number of tickets.
*Please scroll across the screen to see the entire seating chart when selecting your seats.

How do I get my tickets after I place my order?

There are two options. The default setting is to print the tickets at home on your PC and bring the printout to the Ballet Performance. The other option is for Brown Paper Tickets to mail you the ticket via First Class Mail at no extra charge.
