SERIES RENEWALS / TICKET PURCHASING
When can I purchase series/tickets? Series renewals for the next season go on sale the night of the last lecture of the previous season. Therefore, series renewals will be open AFTER Lauren Groff speaks on Thursday, April 13, 2017 starting at 9pm.*
*There is a one-month renewal window; Any series tickets not renewed after the one-month renewal period will be released to new series subscribers.
What is the best way to purchase/renew my series? ONLINE through The Cabin’s website is the easiest, fastest, most secure way to renew your series tickets. Paper renewals will not receive immediate processing.
How do renewals work? If you are a series ticket holder, you may renew the same series and number of series you held the year before.
- If you are a Main Floor (A-N) ticket holder, you are guaranteed a seat in the same general vicinity — usually but not always the same seat — as the year before.
- If you are a ticket holder in the Balcony (rows O-Z), series renewals are on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be assigned accordingly. Renewing online is the quickest way to secure the seats you prefer.
- The Cabin’s R&C series has a returning renewal rate of 99%. The Cabin reserves the right to adjust seating assignments as necessary for the benefit of all patrons.
- Series ticket holders have ONE MONTH to renew their series before they revoke the right to their seats and their seats are released to new series subscribers.
What if I want to adjust my series seats or number of series? You must renew exactly what you had the year before to secure your series renewal. If you’d like to add seats, move to a different section, or have any ADA changes to your seating, please leave your requests or updates for the upcoming series in the Questions section of online checkout. We are happy to comply with ADA requests, and will do the best we can to accommodate other requests after all renewals have been received and the one-month renewal period is over. However, The Cabin’s R&C renewal rate of 99% doesn’t leave us with much flexibility.
What if I’m not a season ticket holder? New subscribers hoping to purchase series tickets must wait until the one-month renewal period is over. Any remaining series seats will become available to Cabin members ONLY on June 1st, 2017, and to the general public starting June 15, 2017.
Can I buy a single ticket to a Readings & Conversations event? If individual tickets to R&C events remain after series renewals, they will become available to members ONLY on Wednesday, July 19, and the general public starting Wednesday, August 2, 2017.
What if an event I want to go to is sold out? Never fear! Last minute Rush Tickets will always be available for an affordable, discounted price at the door the night of the event.
What are Rush Tickets? Rush Tickets are tickets given back to us from patrons with schedule conflicts. Seats could range anywhere form the front row to the balcony. They are always $20/nonmembers and $15 for students & members of The Cabin. Rush Tickets are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. While it is not a guarantee, we can usually accommodate all Rush Ticket hopefuls.
Are there reduced rates available? Student rate tickets are available. Give us a call for the code!
What if I am attending The Cabin’s Annual Fundraiser: Dinner On Stage at the Morrison Center, and I need a ticket to the lecture because I’m not a series subscriber? Or, I need an additional ticket to the lecture for my dinner guest? Please contact us at #208.331.8000. We have seats saved up front at the Morrison Center for our special gala attendees that won’t be available online.
How do I get my tickets? R&C series tickets are available for pick up at The Cabin between 9am & 5pm, Monday-Friday, beginning September 29, 2017. Any tickets not picked up before the lecture will be available at the theater box office upon entering the theater. Individual tickets to our kickoff lecture at the Morrison Center are available for pick up at the Morrison Center box office between 10am & 5pm, Monday-Friday.
What is Will Call? Tickets being held in Will Call simply means they are available for pick up at The Cabin during business hours after the aforementioned release date.
Can a friend pick up my tickets? Absolutely.
What does my series include? Your series includes one ticket to each of our 5 standard R&C series evening lectures. Your series does not include any special events with the author beforehand. Attendance at special events requires an additional ticket purchase.
I lost my tickets, what can I do? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will reprint them! However, we must know ahead of time and by noon the day before the event.
I can’t use my tickets, what do I do? Give them to a friend or family member! You don’t need to notify us. Or, email us at email@example.com and donate them back to The Cabin by 1pm the day of the event. We must know by 1pm, otherwise we are unable to reuse them. Email is much better than a phone call and we do not need your physical tickets back. We will send you a donation acknowledgement and resell the ticket(s) as a part of our Rush Tickets incentive. We must know by 12pm the day before, otherwise we are unable to reuse them.
THE NIGHT OF and BEYOND
What time do doors open? Doors open 1 hour before the event start time.

What is the format of the evening and is there an opportunity to ask a question or talk to the author? A Readings & Conversations lecture is typically an original talk by the author on the subject of his/her choice. It can be about their current book, upcoming projects, past works, relevant cultural issues, and more. The talk runs for about an hour, and is followed by a 20-30 minute Q&A from the audience, moderated by The Cabin’s Executive Director.
Can I get my books signed by the author? Yes! Please bring your books. The book signing portion of the evening is a wonderful opportunity to meet and connect with our authors.
