Plan Your Visit


Memorial Auditorium SeatsBecause we are an academic department, we unfortunately do not have a physical box office location, nor do we have box office agents through whom you can purchase tickets via phone or fax. For this reason, the only method of purchasing tickets in advance is via this website. View our "Tickets + Performances" page to purchase tickets and view all upcoming performances.

Please note that more often than not, TAPS productions sell out before the run opens. For that reason, we encourage you to purchase tickets in advance via this website. However, in the event that tickets are still available, they may be purchased in cash or check (only) at the door of the performance venue beginning one hour prior to curtain.
