Commonly asked questions about watching an ON DEMAND virtual City Circle performance:
How do I purchase tickets?
Using the link above, you will purchase your tickets through our partners at Showtix4u.com. Select the performance name and the number of tickets you would like to purchase. You’ll pay with your credit card. Once your order is complete, you’ll receive an e-mail receipt with a link to view the performance. Please note that the performance is viewable only on the dates listed (it won’t be available on other days).
How many tickets should I purchase (e.g., What is a “device”?)
We ask that you purchase tickets just like you would at the theatre—one ticket for each person. Each ticket will allow one “device” (a computer, tablet, or iPad) to watch the show, so you can choose to watch together or separately. Please note that your tickets can’t be shared with friends—only one device per ticket will be able to view the performance.
How much do tickets cost?
Tickets are $12 for children and students, $15 for seniors over the age of 55, and $17 for adults. There is also a $25 “Supporter” ticket for those who would like to support the work of City Circle. Selecting the right ticket is on the “honor system”—thank you for choosing the correct ticket price, it makes City Circle possible.
When can I watch the show?
ACTING OUT WHILE STAYING IN will be available for streaming On Demand Friday, April 9–Sunday, April 11. You can view the performance on those dates anytime starting after 4:00 PM on Friday. The show won’t be available on other dates, so don’t miss it!
Please note that although the video rental is technically for 48 hours, the video will no longer be available after 11:59 PM Sunday night (CST). So you will have 48 hours OR until midnight Sunday, whichever comes first.
How do I watch the show?
No special software is needed. When you purchase tickets, you will receive an e-mail confirmation from Showtix4u.com that contains a link for you to watch the performance. To view the performance, we recommend you use a device (computer, laptop, or iPad) that is connected to your wireless network or internet router. If you cannot locate your showtix4u email, please contact the Box Office as soon as possible and we will have it re-sent to you.
When you’re ready to watch the performance, use your favorite computer, laptop, or iPad to open your confirmation email and click on the performance link. You can also copy the link directly into your internet browser. The performance video will open and play in your internet browser. Please note that your individualized link cannot be shared with friends—only one device per ticket will be able to view the performance.
Is there a playbill for the show?
Yes! The playbill will become available the day before the show premieres. Visit this web page at that time to find the playbill link.
