News and Announcements


Four County Friends & Family,

With only 3 individual tickets remaining for the entire run of A Christmas Carol (snag them now!) we wanted to share some important information on tickets for the show!

–No Waitlist: We will not be offering a ticket waitlist for this production. While nice in theory, by the time tickets become available, members of the waitlist are rarely available to snag the seats (only wanting to come a certain night, have made new plans, etc.) We experimented with this during ELF last Christmas, and the reality is not as fun as the theory! Lots of phone calls, very little return.

Q: What can you do?

A: Continue to check our ticketing website! Any tickets that are released in advance will be opened on SimpleTix. For example, 2 seats for opening night opened up a few days ago (they have since been re-claimed) but you never know what might pop up! Please be aware of scammers/bots on social media who will claim to have several tickets available for sale. Do not purchase tickets from someone you don’t know/trust!
A: You can email the Box Office at to see if any tickets have been made available on the day of your desired performance!
A: You can try your luck at the door! Sometimes tickets are made available before the performance due to last minute cancellations (please don’t be a last minute cancellation!) We do not recommend this for large parties, but parties of 1-2 are sometimes successful with this route!

Speaking of cancellations…

Friendly reminders:

-Four County Players only offers refunds if we have to cancel a performance (weather, etc.)
-If you have tickets you are not using, we ask that you please release them back to the Box Office (if not re-gifting them) in advance of the performance. When patrons show up the night of the show and hand in extra tickets (example, a member of their party is sick,) it is next to impossible to resell the tickets unless anyone has shown up at the door hoping for tickets. We are unable to call people 30 minutes before curtain. The minute you find out you aren’t using your tickets, please let us know or make a plan as there are lots of people who want to see this show! You don’t want to be the reason there are empty seats at a sold out show.
-While appropriate for the whole family, please note that A Christmas Carol is not recommended for children under the age of 5 or those who are unable to observe proper theater etiquette for a full length performance.

Thank you for your help in making this a happy holiday for all!
