When the print/email button is clicked on those windows, it will show a list of email addresses for the household, as well as an option to add another email for the patron. Emailing tickets sends out a PDF of the ticket that is exactly the same as if the patron had purchased the ticket online.

  • The performance does not allow 'print-at-home' tickets. If they can't get these tickets online then the box office cannot send them
  • Print at home tickets is an available option within the system
