What are the ticketing fees?
One World is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Our mission is to present diverse, unique music & cultural arts in an intimate, up close & personal setting to our community. We are dedicated to providing the highest level of service to our patrons. In order to accomplish this, a fee is added to each ticket which will be used to support costs associated with each performance and maintenance of the venue.
A Ticket Fee of $11 ($3 for children’s shows) is added to the base price of each ticket before checkout. This is the portion of the ticket price that covers third party box office fees, parking fees at the venue, credit card fees, labor, facility maintenance and improvements, phone fees, and more. Our 300-seat venue has overhead costs similar to facilities that have 10 times the capacity and gross potential, but don’t provide free onsite parking like we do. A portion of your service fee goes toward improvements to our facilities. Supporting our shows not only helps us to continue to bring great artists to Austin, but also supports community services like providing free tickets to underserved families and organizations that serve the underprivileged, booking multicultural arts-in-education programming for Austin schools, scholarships for young musicians to the Berklee College of Music, scholarships to our summer camp for military families, and many other services.
PLEASE NOTE: When ordering online the Ticket Fee is not included in the base ticket price you see when selecting seats; it is added in the Order Confirmation/Payment page once you have added seats to your Shopping Cart before final checkout. Please keep this in mind when selecting your seats online.
It is not possible to avoid paying this fee by purchasing tickets in person at the box office.
Do you serve dinner at your shows?
Generally, all of our shows offer an optional dinner, although we do occasionally have shows that do not have a dinner option available.
When purchasing tickets to shows that have the dinner option available, you can select between the DINNER or NO DINNER option for any of your tickets, regardless of location, price, or performance time.
Please note that dinner begins serving 90 minutes before showtime.

What is the ticket refund policy?
All sales are final. No refunds or exchanges will be permitted unless the show is cancelled or postponed.
What Ticket Subscription Packages are available?
Currently, the only ticket subscription package available is our Platinum Membership, which requires the purchase of a ticket to all of our adult shows, with a 15% discount on the base ticket price. On average, we book between 65 – 80 shows annually, split between two overlapping seasons (season brochures are typically sent out in March and September). Maintaining a Platinum Membership allows you to ensure that your choice of seat(s) are reserved for any new shows that are added. After the membership discount, a single house seat costs approximately $3200 annually, and a single prime seat costs approximately $4000 annually, depending on how many shows are actually booked in any one year.

The theatre begins seating patrons about 30 minutes before show time, as listed on your tickets. The artist will begin performing very shortly after show time, so please don’t be late! Pre-concert live entertainment from one of Austin’s local musicians and our Full Service Bar open 90 minutes prior to show time. Please come enjoy a drink with us before the main performance.

What accommodations does One World Theatre have for ADA or mobility impaired patrons?
There are a few options available in order to make your experience at One World Theatre as easy as possible. Depending on whether or not you will be dining or otherwise visiting our downstairs Celebration Hall will determine which option is best for you.
If you will be arriving early and dining with us downstairs, or just want to have a drink at the bar and enjoy our preconcert entertainment, we suggest that you park in the second parking lot to your immediate left when you first pull into our driveway. You will see the large wooden doors leading first into our tented piazza, and then into our Celebration Hall where our bar, box office, dining area, and preconcert entertainment is located. From here, when it is time to head upstairs to the the theatre, we will have a Gem Cart available to shuttle you upstairs, so you do not need to navigate any stairs. In order to arrange a ride on the Gem Cart, please speak to the box office when you are ready to head upstairs.
If you will NOT be visiting the downstairs Celebration Hall, we do have designated ADA parking directly in front of the main entrance to the theatre. When you arrive at our venue, you will want to follow the one-way drive way about three quarters of the way around, and then to your left you will see the blue ADA parking sign. There are an additional two ADA parking spots directly across the roadway to the right. These spots are available to any patrons with a valid ADA placard. From these spots, you do not need to navigate any steps in order to enter the theatre.
For any patrons that are disabled, or mobility impaired, we do recommend arriving about 30 minutes early so that our ushers will be able to best assist you in locating and navigating to your seats in the theatre. If you have any questions, or need any additional assistance, please feel free to speak to either the box office, or the first usher that you encounter in the theatre.

Is photography allowed?
Many artists prefer that no photos or videos be taken during their act. If the artist has permitted photos or videos to be taken, and announcement will be made shortly before the show starts.

If photography and/or videography have been allowed, please remember to be considerate of the people around you. Given the small size, and intimate setting at One World Theatre, taking photos could quite easily distract the people seated nearby.
Is it ok to arrive late?
Yes, but please be considerate of other patrons when entering the theatre and locating your seat.
