The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance is working to reschedule performances that have been postponed following Governor DeWine’s press conference on March 12, 2020 banning all gatherings of 100 or more people. We will continue to provide revised dates on this page as they become available.
For performances with revised dates, your current tickets will automatically be transferred to the new date, and your seats will remain the same. Your current tickets with the original performance date will remain active and will be the tickets you present at the time of the rescheduled concert.
If you have tickets to a performance and cannot attend the rescheduled date or if the performance is canceled, we are offering the following options:
Exchange your tickets to an upcoming performance. We are happy to exchange your tickets for one of the many upcoming 2019–2020 Dayton Performing Arts Alliance performances. We understand that customers are thinking carefully about purchasing tickets for future performances. To offer increased flexibility, all ticket exchanges are free for any performance remaining in the 2019-2020 DPAA season.
Put tickets on account. Unsure of what you would like to exchange into? The Ticket Office can put your funds on account for future use.
Donate your tickets to DPAA’s Education Programs. Your tax-deductible donation today means that the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance can continue to provide unique opportunities annually for over 70,000 children and their families to access the arts.
Donate your tickets to the DPAA Annual Fund. Your tax-deductible donation today means that the next time you join us for a Dayton Opera, Dayton Ballet, or Dayton Philharmonic performance, we will be here to share the joy of live performances with you once more, as a healthy, vibrant and financially secure organization.
Receive a refund if your performance has been canceled. If your performance has been canceled, we are happy to refund your tickets. However, we encourage you to support the DPAA and choose one of the options above!
To carry out these options, please call the ticketing office at: (937) 228-3630 or send an email to [email protected]. The Dayton Live Ticket Office phones will remain open Tuesday – Friday from 10 am – 6 pm.
Please keep in mind that due to high volumes, you may be on hold for several minutes and it may take 2-3 business days to process your request. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
As our community confronts a global health crisis, the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance is exploring the possibility for live broadcasts of a few of our events. We are hoping to find ways to continue sharing performances that provide strength, comfort and joy through this challenging time through possible broadcasts and live streams. We will provide details if and when they become available.
Your support today is more important than ever. As a nonprofit arts organization, the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance relies on the people we serve. That has never been more true than during this time of event closures as our community works together to reduce the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Please consider the role the performing arts play in your life and support the Dayton Ballet, Dayton Opera, and the Dayton Philharmonic with a gift of any amount today.

Governor DeWine today issued an executive order to cancel gatherings of 100 or more people throughout the state of Ohio for the next few weeks.
In accordance with this order, Dayton Live – operators of the Schuster Center, Victoria Theatre, The Loft Theatre, and the PNC Arts Annex – will be closing these venues effective immediately, until further notice from government officials and public health administrators.
All Dayton Performing Arts Alliance (DPAA) concerts and events scheduled to be held in these venues will be postponed or canceled until the venues are open once again. The DPAA will also be postponing or canceling additional concerts in other venues in the Dayton area in which we were scheduled to perform.
Performances by Dayton Ballet, Dayton Opera, and Dayton Philharmonic scheduled through the end of March will be postponed or canceled, per the information below. All decisions about performances beginning in the month of April will be made when more information is available.
If you have tickets to a postponed or canceled event, we will provide more information with what you can do with your tickets as soon as possible. Patrons will be notified with further information in the very near future via email and on our website at www.daytonperformingarts.org.
Please be aware that we are responding to a high volume of emails and phone calls, and any inquiries you have may take longer than normal to answer. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this unprecedented and rapidly changing situation.
