Priority Seating

Wharton Center’s subscribers are seated on a priority system involving both donation level and consecutive years of subscription ticket history. All Circle Members are part of that priority seating, affording you the opportunity to purchase the best seats in the house prior to the general public.

Priority 1: $1,000 donors and above will have their subscription order of a maximum of six Zone 1 seats seated next, based by circle membership level in descending order (Emerald to Platinum).

Priority 2: $250 to $999 donors or subscribers with 10 years of history or more will be seated next with a maximum of four Zone 1 seats. Subscribers who qualify for Priority 2 status and who also donate between $250 to $999 will be seated first to reflect the value of private support.

Priority 3: $100 to $249 donors or subscribers with 6 years of history or more will be seated after priority 2. Subscribers who qualify for Priority 3 status and who also donate between $100 to $249 will be seated first to reflect the value of private support.

Priority 4: Donors of $50–$99 or subscribers with 5 or fewer consecutive years of history will be seated after priority 3.

Series tickets go on sale to the general public after the above priorities are seated. Renewable Seats are available to donors who make a one-time gift of $50,000 or more to one of the Center’s endowment funds. Donors are entitled to the right–of–first–refusal to four seats of their choice (based on availability) for their personal subscription order during their lifetime. These seats are for personal use only and cannot be transferred to anyone else.
