The FBPH Policies


The Forestburgh Playhouse is committed to non-discrimination and a flexible, imaginative casting policy. Performers of all ethnicities are strongly encouraged to audition.



We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy.  We may collect personally identifiable information when you visit our site.  We also may automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information and the page(s) you visited.  Such information may be used for record keeping purposes only.  We will not sell or disseminate your personally identifiable information to anyone.  Please contact us at 845-794-2005 or if you have any questions or concerns.



Your payment and personal information is always safe.  Our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions.  It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name and address, so that it cannot be read over the internet.  Please contact us at 845-794-2005 or if you have any questions or concerns.



No refunds are permitted at the Forestburgh Playhouse. If you are unable to use your tickets, you may transfer them to a friend or you may choose to return them to the Forestburgh Playhouse to be re-sold; this return will be considered a tax-deductible donation, provided it is made more than 1 hour prior to curtain.

Subject to availability, tickets may be exchanged up to 48 hours in advance by calling the Box Office; after that time there are no exchanges allowed. A $3/ticket exchange fee would apply for all except subscribers. Tickets may be exchanged for another performance of the purchased production only; no show-to-show exchanges allowed.  This policy was implemented on July 20, 2017.



Plan ahead! Please inform the recipient of a Forestburgh Playhouse Gift Certificate not to wait until the last minute to redeem their Gift Certificate.  Each Gift Certificate has a clearly marked expiration date at the bottom of the Gift Certificate. Gift Certificates cannot be redeemed after the expiration date.  In addition, seating is subject to availability and not guaranteed until the order is placed. If a particular performance is sold out, Gift Certificate redeemers must choose a different performance.  Some shows may be very popular and sell out in advance. Gift Certificate redeemers cannot be accommodated if a performance is sold out. No refunds for Gift Certificates are permitted at the Forestburgh Playhouse. If you are unable to use your Gift Certificate, you may transfer it to a friend—your friend must present theGift Certificate at the Box Office in order to redeem it.


Patrons arriving late to a performance will be seated in a convenient location at a pre-determined/appropriate point in Act I or at intermission. Patrons arriving late to a performance are not guaranteed seating in their reserved seats and will be seated in open/available seats that are easy to access during Act I.  Patrons can then utilize their reserved seats for Act II.  Patrons are encouraged to call the Box Office to notify the Playhouse of their late arrival.


The use of cell phones, tablets, and other wireless devices is distracting to other patrons, hampers audience members’ enjoyment of the production and can be a danger to performers onstage or a hindrance to their execution of a performance. Excepting Medical Professionals that are on-call or Press, Patrons are required to turn off their cell phones, tablets and other wireless devices before the performance begins.  Patrons that do not comply may be requested to leave the performance and shall not receive a refund.
