Ticket Policies

Do you charge ticketing fees?

We have two types of ticketing fees that go directly to supporting the work of our ticket-office staff:

  • A one-time $20 fee for all subscription purchases 
  • A $3.50 per-ticket fee for all single-ticket purchases (online, over the phone or at our windows)

Ticketing fees are non-refundable. 

I can’t attend an event, what are my options?

It’s a shame when life gets in the way of great art, but we understand that plans change.  We offer both ticket exchange and donation options. Exchanges for another event in the current season, or donation requests, must be received by 5 p.m. the business day before your event.

Submit this form to exchange or donate tickets. 

Exchanges are fee-free. Exchanging into a higher-priced performance or seating area may result in a price difference.  We are not able to offer a refund for exchanging into a lower-priced event or seating area.

Mondavi Center subscribers may choose to return tickets for an event credit that may be used to purchase Mondavi Center Presents performances within the same season. All event credit will expire on June 30

Can I get a refund?

Tickets are nonrefundable, except in the case of a canceled event; all sales are final. Tickets for past or missed performances may not be exchanged or donated. Live performance is dynamic: all programs and prices are subject to change.

I have lost my tickets, what are my options?

The Mondavi Center Ticket Office will reissue tickets to the account holder. Contact the Ticket Office via phone: 530-754-2787 or email: to replace your tickets as soon as possible. The Mondavi Center does not replace tickets purchased through secondary markets.

What happens if an event is canceled? 

If a performance is canceled, you will have the option to receive a full refund or an event credit toward another Mondavi Center event within the same season. Refunds are granted only for canceled performances. Handling fees are non-refundable.

What can I do with my event credit? 

All held event credit and credits obtained in a Mondavi Center season may be used towards the purchase of Mondavi Center Presents performances within that same season. All accumulated event credit will expire on June 30.

House Policies

Arrive Early

We recommend that you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to event time. Events start promptly at the published time. If you arrive late, you and your party will be seated at an appropriate pause in the program or at intermission. For events without an intermission, you will be seated at an appropriate interval at the discretion of the house manager; in some situations, this can mean being given an alternate seat for the entirety of the event.

Bringing Children to Events

All patrons must be ticketed, regardless of age. We strongly request that parents determine if their child can sit quietly for the duration of the performance. If you do find yourself with a restless young one, the lobby has multiple monitors on which parents can watch the event.

During performances, we encourage our audiences to fully engage with the work on stage. While you’re welcome to take pictures before the show, during events please silence and stow all your digital devices.
