THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE OCTOBER 14-23

In a chilling and mystifying study in mounting terror, a small group of “psychically receptive” people are brought together in desolate and deserted Hill House, a brooding, mid-Victorian mansion known as a place of evil. The visitors have come to probe the secrets of the old house and to draw forth the mysterious powers that it is alleged to possess—powers which have brought madness, murder and suicide to those who have lived there in in the past. As disturbing events begin to transpire, the house begins to influence (and overtake) the visitors’ psyches. To stay sane, they must be stronger than the traumas the house has brought upon them.

We earned a 2021 Gold Seal of Transparency!

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee | July 22 – Aug 7

Full of hilarious, touching, and catchy songs, each speller reveals their hopes, struggles, and passions as they make their way through the competition. With an engaging, tuneful score by William Finn and a sweet, funny book by Rachel Sheinkin, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee causes audiences to fall in love, both with the show itself and its “perspicacious,” “jocular,” and “effervescent” spellers.

We strongly recommend children under the age of 4 not attend productions other than those designated as toddler friendly. Toddler friendly performances, if available, will be noted on a particular production’s informational page.

If you have any questions about content, age-appropriateness or stage effects (such as strobe lights or loud noises) that might have a bearing on patron comfort, please contact the box office at 828-692-1082.

For the comfort of our audience, any patron making a disturbance during a show will be asked to step out of the auditorium— regardless of age.

LATE SEATING

As a courtesy to other patrons, late arrivals may not be seated in their ticketed seats once the performance has begun. Late seating is at the discretion of the house manager. Additionally, late arrivals may be asked to delay their entrance until a suitable moment within the production.

Tickets are only valid until the curtain time printed on the front of the ticket. Empty seats at that time may be resold and no refund will be issued for late arrivals. Late arrivals may be seated in different seats for the first act or for the entire performance depending on seating availability.

Please call the Box Office if you know that you will be delayed.

TICKET EXCHANGES

All ticket exchanges may be done at the Box Office or online, subject to seating availability. Tickets may be exchanged for another performance of the same production. Exchanges must be issued at least 24 hours prior to the original performance.

After the exchange, the customer’s original tickets will no longer be valid. The Box Office will ask the customer to either surrender the original tickets or destroy them as soon as possible.

All exchanges are subject to a $1 per ticket exchange fee. Fixed Season Ticket holders will receive one (1) free exchange during the season.

In case of emergency, we may (at our discretion and ONLY at the Box Office) allow the customer to use his/her tickets for another performance if tickets are available. Ticket exchange fees still apply.

STANDBY TICKETS

Some performances may sell out. In those situations, the Box Office may create a standby list. Phone calls will be made to those on the standby list, should seating become available, until two hours before the performance.

Patrons are welcome to visit the Box Office, open one hour before curtain, to check in for that performance’s standby. Tickets will be released, should they become available, to those in the lobby in the order that they checked in. Phone calls will not be made the hour before a performance.

We reserve the right to release all unclaimed tickets at curtain time to those on the standby list. Please call the Box Office if you know that you will be delayed.

If you are unable to use your tickets, we encourage you to give them to friends and family. Tickets purchased online and at the Box Office may be exchanged for another performance of the same production. Customers may also surrender unused tickets to the Box Office within 24 hours before or after the performance date/time to receive a tax-deductible donation letter.

Unused tickets are only valid until the curtain time printed on the front of the ticket. Empty seats at that time may be resold and no refund will be issued.

WEATHER CANCELLATIONS

“The show must go on.” At Hendersonville Theatre, it is normally our policy to not cancel performances due to bad weather.

As a result, we urge our ticket holders to make every effort to attend their ticketed performance. Should this prove impossible, please call the Box Office as soon as possible before the performance. Should the Box Office be closed, please leave a message. Alternative arrangements will be made when possible. We cannot guarantee that seating will be available for an alternate performance.

Refunds will not be issued for bad weather unless the theatre cancels the performance because of emergency circumstances.
