Conditions of ticket sales for “Come from Away” - June 6, 2018

Royal Alexandra Theatre

No seat will be held until a deposit of $70.00 is received - current dated cheque payable to Probus Northumberland

Balance of $70.00 will be due by March 2018

There will be no refunds, unless we can sell your ticket/s from a waiting list.

Why no refunds?

We have to enter into a contract with the Coach Line, Mirvish Productions or other Venue and usually a restaurant.  Cost of tickets to Probus member are based on our actual fixed costs, with a small portion extra per ticket.  Our price for the bus is based on 56 seats being sold.  Even if we sell only one ticket, our cost is the same as if we sell 56.  The extra cushion covers potentially extra costs, such as gas surcharge, parking costs incurred for the bus and possible traffic tickets incurred by the driver.  Fortunately, these seldom occur, but we must allow for them.  With the theatre productions, once the deposit has been paid, we are bound to pay for the full 56 seats (which range in price from $75 to $95 per seat), plus service charges and courier costs and there are no refunds.  With some restaurants, there is a little flexibility, in that some may allow us just to pay for the number of guests served.  Where we can, we refund a meal portion for someone who is unable to attend and there are no wait list replacements.

The foregoing perhaps explains why we try to maintain a waiting list for each event so that, where possible, we can offer a refund in the sense that someone can buy a ticket from someone who is unable to attend.
