When an event is listed as fully seated it means we have seating throughout the venue all the way up to the front of the stage and do not have any areas for standing or dancing. All seating at Polaris Hall is first-come, first-serve.

Email booking@mississippistudios.com. Please understand that we have little to no control over opening spots for national touring acts and our calendar fills up pretty quickly. And what you see online on our show calendar isn't the entire picture as many dates are coordinated 6-8 months in advance, even if a show isn't on sale on a particular date. All submissions are considered but not all are responded to.

Transfer or share your tickets at your own risk. Please note, once the original purchaser shares their ticket(s), they can only be used once by anyone who has a copy. The QR code remains the same, and, once scanned, it will not be usable again.

Absolutely, if you already placed your order via Etix, you can request your order to be resent to your original purchaser email by clicking here.

Unfortunately, we cannot assist with orders placed on 3rd party ticketing platforms as we have no access or control over them. We do also have to caution purchasing tickets from strangers or on Craigslist, we see plenty of people get ripped off and it breaks our heart when we cannot help.

All ticket sales are final and non-refundable. At your own risk, you are welcome to share your tickets with a friend or someone who can attend.

We will email ticket purchasers directly and post updated information on our website.
