Ticket Packaging Options
Ticket packaging options are available, including multiple price options, discounts for certain age groups (such as senior citizens or students) or associations, group/bulk sales, and so forth. As the packaging options offer varying degrees of support, service, and cost, the Renter is expected to contact the Box Office Manager (Christy Grantham, 910-962-3931 or via email) to determine the ticketing option most suitable for a specific event. The final decision on all ticketing options will be made by the Auditorium Director.
Refunds & Exchanges
All sales are final. The Kenan Auditorium has a "No Exchanges/No Refunds" policy. Requests for refunds will be forwarded to the Renter/Renting organization. In the event of a cancellation, the Renter/Renting Organization will be responsible for all refunds.
Records & Ticketing Reports
Records and reports will be provided by the Box Office Manager for each performance. For no additional fee, one copy of the patron mailing list can be provided if requested. Please contact the Box Office Manager for the availability and pricing of additional copies or additional reports.
Receipts for cash, credit card and check sales are deposited at the end of each business day into a University Trust Fund. A University check will be issued within thirty (30) days of the last performance in the amount of gross sales, less expenses, based on the Box Office final report for ticket sales.
