Below is a list of frequently asked questions pertaining to the Sherman Theater. If you have a question that is not answered, please feel free to call 570-420-2808.
I saw tickets for sale on another website and they were more expensive, are these tickets real?
Third party “ticket resale” web sites create the illusion that they have “special access” to the best seats in the house, or that they are authorized sellers for the Sherman Theater, but all they do is purchase tickets from the Sherman or private individuals, and resell them at inflated prices. None of the price markup benefits the theater or the artist, who were the entities that put up the money and the time and the energy to create the show in the first place, and the Sherman Theater can't confirm that tickets purchased from anywhere other than ticketmaster.com or the Sherman Theater directly are valid.
