Field Trip FAQs

Are Parents, teachers, bus driver, etc. FREE?

Tickets are $6.75 each and every 10th ticket is free. For example, book 50 seats and 5 of those are free of charge, so you pay for 45 seats. Every person who plans on attending the production MUST be included in the TOTAL number of seats ordered. We only charge you for nine of every ten tickets you order. How you use your free tickets is up to you. Please note that individual tickets not ordered through the school (parents, for example) will be sold at full price and are not guaranteed to be seated with the school group.

What if additional individuals wish to attend?

Individual tickets to a school day show can be purchased at regular rates, (Please see individual shows for pricing). Tickets must be paid for at the time of ordering. There are no refunds for individual tickets. Forty‐eight hour notice is required to be seated with a group already attending.

What if I need to change my seat total?

Seats may be added to an order, subject to availability. You can make reductions before the cancellation date. Once the cancellation date has passed, you may reduce your order by ten seats or less until one week prior to your show. All changes to an order must be placed by the school, by the person who initially placed the order.

What if I need to cancel my order?

Please observe the following cancellation dates, which also appear on your invoice. Be sure to doublecheck the date at the time of your order. You may cancel before this date. You may not cancel afterwards and are considered responsible for the amount invoiced. Call Erin McGuire-Thompson at 859.254.4546, ext. 222 for questions. Orders placed after the cancellation date are considered final sales and payment or purchase order is due upon receipt of the invoice.

Where do the shows perform?

All shows are performed on LCT’s Main Stage or Learning Stage are conveniently located at 418 W. Short Street, Lexington, KY 40507. The Best Christmas Pageant Ever performs right across the street from LCT in The Lexington Opera House at 401 W Short Street. *Note that the maximum group size for school performance in the Learning Stage (The Ghosts of Pineville and Disney’s High School Musical Jr.) is 105.*

If school is cancelled, can I get a refund?

Lexington Children’s Theatre will try to reschedule your performance if your school day is cancelled, or if we are forced to cancel a performance for any reason. A refund will be issued if rescheduling is not possible.

When is payment due?

Payment is due no later than the day your group attends the performance. If you plan on paying the day of your performance please mail or fax your purchase order in advance of the show date. If you do not wish to send a purchase order, please mail your check in advance.


Everyone entering the theatre must have a seat reserved, including all teachers and chaperones, and everyone in your group must either be included on your invoice or have paid us separately. Every tenth seat purchased is a free seat, which many schools choose to use for teachers and chaperones, but can also be allotted in any way desired.

Any parent who wishes to come and orders outside the group order is not considered a part of the school group and is required to pay the full public price.

ALL GROUPS OF 10 OR LESS are REQUIRED to confirm and pay at minimum 2 weeks prior to performance. If payment is not received and/or your plans to attend your reserved performance change after the 2 week deadline then you are still responsible for the invoiced amount in full as we are unable resell your tickets. Payment in full, for groups of 10 or less, at time of reservation is highly encouraged.

Payment must be given in a SINGLE PAYMENT as time is very limited on the day of the show and we want to get you all seated with plenty of time to settle in to enjoy the show.

Final Payment will be due by the date of your scheduled performance. No refunds are given for unused tickets as we are unable to resell them. All sales are final.

If a show is sold out, you may request to be placed on a waiting list in case of cancellations.


Your order can be cancelled and you may cancel more than 10 seats up until 30 days prior to the date of your performance. You may reduce your number of seats by no more than 10 up to 7 days prior to your scheduled performance. No seats may be dropped after this date. After this date, you are considered responsible for the seats and amount invoiced, regardless of absenteeism on the day of the performance. If this date falls on or near a holiday for your school, you are still responsible for confirming the final number of tickets by this date. Additional tickets are subject to availability.

If school is cancelled last minute due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, we will work with you to reschedule your group. If rescheduling is impossible after exhausting all avenues then you are not responsible for the balance.
