For all shows after April 1, 2012, there will be a $2.00 handling fee applied to each ticket sold. This fee is necessary for us to collect what we need to bring the performer here, sell the tickets, and keep it personal, which is what your experience is all about. We try to keep things as low as possible, and ticket revenue really only covers the cost of the performer’s fee. We know you enjoy talking with us in the box office to get your tickets, or to tell us any special requests, and we enjoy being front and center in the lobby to greet you for every show when you walk in. That personal touch costs a little more, but we think you will agree that it’s worth it, and we really want to remain a place where you can talk to someone for whatever you might need. Many venues with automated ticketing do charge handling fees, and most of them are much higher than what we are charging. We appreciate your understanding!
Please order early for preferred seating (see “Advanced Tickets”). Many concerts will sell out before the performance. Special Member rows are sold for all reserved seating events. If you would like member pricing, please call us at the box office at 442-8455.
We no longer offer senior discounts. We encourage our patrons to become members of CCAC to enjoy discounted tickets and other benefits. An individual membership pays for itself very quickly, and helps keep the arts alive and thriving here in Bath!

Members: If you are unable to use your tickets, and can give us at least 48 hours notice, we will gladly exchange your tickets for another event.
Non-members: The Chocolate Church is unable to refund or accept exchanges on tickets. We will be glad to provide you with a tax receipt upon request should you be unable to use your tickets. Better yet, giving your ticket to a friend is a great way to help The Chocolate Church and to introduce someone to our terrific programming!
The Chocolate Church cancels a performance only when travel conditions prevent the artist’s arrival. In the event of cancellation, we will attempt to reschedule the performance. Should this not be possible, tickets may be exchanged for any other event of equal or lesser value within the same season. Refunds are given only in the event of a cancellation by the performer.
Food, Beverage & Smoking
Concessions are available in the Lobby for most CCAC performances. No other outside food and beverage (besides water) are permitted in the theater. Water bottles are permitted (please use our handy recycling containers.)
Smoking is not permitted anywhere in the Chocolate Church Arts Center, including the Gallery, Theater and Annex. In addition, we request that patrons refrain from smoking on the Church decks, stairs, or around entrances.
Parking is permitted in the lot next on the north side of the church. Parking is also permitted on the street (except when posted for snow removal or other special conditions). Municipal parking lots are located on Water Street and are within easy walking distance of The Chocolate Church.
The Theater is accessible to patrons with wheelchairs, and wheelchair space is available for all performances. Parking for patrons with handicapped plates or decals is located adjacent to the Church. Please call us in advance for wheelchair seating.
The wheelchair-accessible entrance to the Theater is on the South-side deck of the Church. Follow the walkway from the north-side Church parking lot past the main entrance to the entrance off the deck along the South side of the Church.
Please feel free to call ahead if you will need special assistance.
If you arrive after the performance has begun please be sensitive to the performers and those patrons who are already seated. The Chocolate Church reserves the right to seat late arrivals at a break appropriate to the show that will cause the least disruption.
