Helpful Tips for The Group Sales Process

Plan for SUCCESS

  • Review our SHOW SCHEDULE and select potential dates. It's best to have more than one option.
  • Have in mind an estimated number of guests you anticipate with your party.
  • Consider any special needs people in your group, such as ADA seating or dietary restrictions.
  • Call our GROUP SALES department at 803.802.2300.
  • Reserve an estimated number of seats with a 25% deposit either by check or credit card. This initial reservation number has leeway to change prior to finalizing your order. However, tickets added after the initial reservation may not be seated with your party. It is extremely important to communicate any anticipated ADA seating needed at this time. As the theatre fills, those seats may not be available when you finalize your reservation.
    Notes:
    • Payment is due at time of reservation. Those reserving by check should either come by the box office or else call to determine the deposit amount, then include a phone number on the check. Seats will not be reserved until the check is received.
    • Deposit policy differs for PROFESSIONAL TOUR OPERATORS.
  • Request any additional rack cards or information you may need to promote the trip to your group.
  • Ask about ways you may wish to extend your stay, such as adding a NarroWay Lite show or a petting zoo experience.
  • Our group sales department will issue a contract via e-mail to be signed electronically.
  • Promote the trip to your group and encourage sign-ups. Find out if any participants have special needs of which you were unaware, such as gluten-sensitive or vegetarian meals.
  • Call group sales to finalize your reservation 30 days prior to your show date. Once finalized, tickets may not be dropped from the order. At this time, you will need to know:
    • exact number of each type of ticket needed (adult, senior, youth)
    • any vegetarian or gluten-sensitive meals needed
    • any ADA seating needed (note: ADA seating may not be available when finalizing your order if not previously requested).
  • Before embarking on your trip, communicate with your group.
    • Suggest things they may prefer to make the trip more enjoyable, such as a light jacket, sweater or ear plugs.
    • Let them know what to expect when they arrive.
    • Remind them that photos, videos and other recordings are prohibited during the show. We will have photo opportunities available at intermission and following the show.
  • Plan to arrive 45 minutes prior to your scheduled show time. Allow travel time to accommodate for busy Charlotte area traffic. Earlier arrivals may enjoy shopping at the Attic Gift Shop.
  • Enjoy your experience at the NarroWay Theatre and stop by Whoopie Pies Ice Cream for a delicious sweet treat following the show. Note: Whoopie Pies Ice Cream typically closes at 6pm on weeknights. However, if you are visiting Sunday through Friday and would like ice cream following the show, please request in advance and Whoopie Pies will be glad to open for groups of 20 or more.
