All Ticket Sales Are Final
All ticket sales are final. Due to the nature of the performing arts, programs and artists are subject to change. If an artist cancels an appearance, UMS will make every effort to substitute with a comparable artist. Refunds will only be offered if a substitute cannot be found, or in the event of a date change. Handling fees are not refundable. UMS will not cancel performances or refund tickets because of inclement weather.
There is a $10 service charge for all subscription orders.
For single tickets, service charges of $3.00-$6.00 per ticket apply to all internet and phone orders. There are no service charges for tickets purchased at the League Ticket Office or at the venue immediately before the performance. Service charges are never refundable.
Lost or Misplaced Tickets
Call the Ticket Office at 734-764-2538 to have duplicate tickets waiting for you at Will Call. Duplicate tickets cannot be mailed.
Late seating is not guaranteed; please leave ample time for parking and arrival (please note: parking structures are cash-only). UMS staff works with the artists to determine when late seating will be the least disruptive to the artists and other ticket buyers.
Ticket Donations/Unused Tickets
If you are unable to use your tickets, please return them to UMS on or before the performance date (accepted until the published performance time). You will receive a receipt for your tax-deductible contribution. Ticket returns count towards UMS giving levels.
If you’d prefer, you may return your tickets for credit on your UMS account (on-account credit will exclude ticket exchange charges, as determined by our ticket exchange policy). Your credit may be applied toward the purchase of any ticket order through the same UMS season.
Tickets returned for on-account credit must be returned to the ticket office no later than one hour prior to the performance. On-account credit cannot be redeemed online. If you would like to convert an on-account credit to a gift-in-kind before it expires, please call to inform us of your intent.
You may fax a photocopy of your torn tickets to 734-647-1171, or email a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Within 48 hours and until one hour before a performance, UMS will exchange tickets for a $10 per ticket exchange charge (applies to both subscribers and single ticket buyers). Tickets must be exchanged at least one hour before the published performance time. Tickets received less than one hour before the performance will be returned as a gift-in-kind contribution to UMS.
Children and Families
Children under the age of three will not be admitted to regular, full-length UMS performances.
All children must be able to sit quietly in their own seats throughout the performance. Children unable to do so, along with the adult accompanying them, may be asked by an usher to leave the auditorium.
Please use discretion in choosing to bring a child. Remember, everyone must have a ticket regardless of age. Age recommendations for performances are posted on performance pages on the website.
UMS offers specially priced Kids Tickets for children ages 8+.
Will Call/Ticket Pick-Up
All ticket orders received less than 10 days before the performance will be held at Will Call, which opens in the performance venue 90 minutes prior to curtain.
