If you are a ticket holder for any of these performances, a voucher for the value of your tickets will be placed on your McCarter Theatre Center account. 

For our patrons' convenience and in order to manage call volume, we’ll be reaching out directly to ticket holders to discuss your options, including:

  • Donating the value of your ticket as a tax-deductible contribution. Transferring your ticket to a donation supports McCarter during these uncertain times. Your support helps ensure the vitality of the arts now and into the future.

  • Use your voucher to purchase tickets for upcoming performances in our upcoming 2020-2021 season.

If your child is enrolled in an After School class, a member of our Education team will reach out to discuss your options.


Thank you for your patience, support, and understanding as we weather this storm together.  We very much look forward to the day when we can re-open our doors and, with your help, welcome everyone back for the magic and fellowship of live performance.
