The health and wellness of our community is our top priority, so when we see you again—whenever you are ready to visit us—you can be assured that we are doing everything we can to keep you and our staff safe and healthy. We are slowly and carefully scaling up our operations and, as we take these steps, we will continue to keep you apprised of our plans.

I am a Premier or Gold Subscriber. Will I be able to reserve my usual seats for this season?
First, thank you for being a loyal subscriber. We really appreciate you and the many other patrons who have maintained their favorite seats year after year. You’re very important to us, but there is a chance that we’ll have to shift some of those seats this season to accommodate distancing requirements. If we do, we’ll make every effort to get subscribers back into their favorite seats in the future.

How will you handle refunds and exchanges?
For ticket holders who are unable to attend a performance, we plan to be flexible with exchanges for other performances and, if needed, refunds. We’re also planning to provide a livestream option for each performance exclusively for ticket holders so that anyone who is unable to use their ticket because they are unwell or feel uncomfortable attending the performance in person will be able to watch from the comfort of their own home.

If I purchase a ticket to a performance that is later canceled or rescheduled, can I get a refund?
If a performance is canceled or rescheduled, you may exchange your tickets to another performance, donate the value of your tickets, or request a refund.

What do I do if I have a ticket to a performance but I’m not feeling well?
If you are experiencing symptoms or have been in contact with anyone who is sick, please stay home. We will be livestreaming performances exclusively for ticket holders, so you can watch from home. You may also exchange your tickets by  contacting the box office by email at or by calling 540-231-5300 prior to the performances.

I had tickets to a canceled show that was part of the Moss Arts Center’s 2019-2020 season. What happened to those?

At this time, all tickets to canceled performances have been refunded, or, if requested, the value was donated back to the Moss Arts Center. If you have questions regarding your refund status, please call us at 540-231-5300.

I had a credit on my account for the 2019-2020 season. Is the credit still valid?
All unused credit will be available for use in our upcoming 2020-2021 season.  Please contact the box office at 540-231-5300 to apply your credit.
