  • Student Tickets – $15 student tickets are available for purchase online (plus a $1.50 handling fee) or in person at the box office for all ticketed events except the musical (see above). Enter the code STUTIX on the first page of the ticketing website when ordering online. Seats will be selected from among the $45 level for Madama Butterfly and The Peter & Will Anderson Quintet; other events are general admission. Purchasers must show a valid student ID when picking up their tickets.

Tickets cannot be exchanged, returned or refunded, but unused tickets may be donated back to the Festival as a tax-deductible contribution up to the day before an event. You must contact the McCarter Ticket Office at 609.258.2787 by the end of their office hours on the day prior to the event.
