The value of exchanged ticket monies must be redeemed within one year (365 days) of the date of the exchange and will expire thereafter.

ticket fees

There is a $4 facility fee assessed to each individual ticket and a transaction fee is applied to all phone and online orders. The transaction fee for group orders is $12 per order. The transaction fee is waived for walk up orders at State Theatre New Jersey Guest Services (15 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ).

refunds & credits

Once an order is placed, there are NO REFUNDS on tickets unless the event is cancelled. Refunds are only made to the original purchaser and are issued for the value of the tickets only. In the event of a cancellation, every effort will be made to notify the purchaser.

Tickets from unauthorized sources

State Theatre New Jersey strongly cautions against guests buying tickets from ticket sources not officially sanctioned by us. Many guests that have purchased tickets from brokers or scalpers find themselves in possession of counterfeit tickets at inflated prices. This is especially true on sold out shows. A counterfeit ticket will not be accepted. We will not be able to offer any refunds or exchanges. We can only guarantee entry for tickets purchased from our official source: Tickets for State Theatre performances are also occasionally offered on these approved sites: Goldstar, Groupon, TDF, and TodayTix. Watch our video on how to make sure you are purchasing official State Theatre New Jersey tickets.
