Late Reservations

Dayton Live will accept reservations up to the day before a performance, based on availability. Full payment is required when placing an order less than FIVE weeks before a show.


Plan your arrival at least 30 minutes before the scheduled performance time. Additional information will be sent to you in advance of the show, describing parking and dismissal procedures.

Inclement Weather And Emergencies

If your school is closed or delayed due to inclement weather on the day of a scheduled performance, notify us before show time that you will not be attending. You will have the opportunity to attend another performance (pending availability) or to receive a full refund. A decision must be made within 30 days of affected performance to be honored.
