What are box office hours? 

CTA's box office is staffed by one part-time staff member and volunteers. Please be patient, as there are not currently regular box office hours. Purchasing tickets is best done online at cta.ticketleap.com; however, if you need to contact the box office manager, email ctaboxoffice@gmail.com or call 410-757-2281 and leave a voicemail. Someone will get back to you within 48 hours. 

Does my infant/toddler need a ticket? 

CTA does not have a minimum age for attending a production. However, due to fire code regulations, all patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket. 

How do I redeem tickets I won in an auction or raffle? 

Email ctaboxoffice@gmail.com with the organization you won the tickets from, how many tickets you won, and the requested date and time of the show you'd like to see. 

Can I exchange my tickets for another date? 

CTA is able to exchange tickets for another date on a case-by-case basis. The exchange must be done as far in advance as possible and is subject to seating availability at the requested show. 

What happens if I miss a performance? 

Unfortunately, tickets are nonrefundable and cannot be exchanged after the performance you missed. If you think you cannot attend a performance to which you've purchased tickets, email ctaboxoffice@gmail.com as far in advance as possible to see if tickets are available for another date. 

What happens if I'm late for a performance?

We understand that being late is unavoidable sometimes. If you know that you're going to be late, please call the box office at 410-757-2281, as it is staffed hour one prior to showtime. When you arrive, ushers will seat you during a break in scenes to minimize distractions to audience and performers. Latecomer seating is at the discretion of the House Manager.


In the case of a sold-out performance, tickets will be held until curtain time before being resold if the box office has not been alerted that you're running late. 

Can I get a refund for unused tickets? 

Tickets are nonrefundable. CTA graciously accepts the donation of unused tickets to resell to sold-out performances. 

Can I book a field trip to a show? 

CTA offers one to two shows during school hours for each production. Title 1 schools are given priority. Home-schooled students can buy tickets for $5. To book a field trip or a home-school student ticket, email ctaboxoffice@gmail.com
