Info on ticket limits
The number of tickets a member can purchase to any one show is determined by their membership level. Please consult the membership benefits so you know what your level allows. Consider upgrading your membership if you'd like to purchase more seats than your current membership level permits. If an order is completed online without a corresponding membership between September 3 and October 3, 2013, you are authorizing the Western Folklife Center to charge your credit card for a membership at the minimum level to qualify for your ticket purchase request. At the discretion of management, transactions resulting from unauthorized online activity are subject to reversal without notification.
