Information on Tickets

Bowlus Main Auditorium Seating

Advance tickets to Bowlus Cultural Attraction Series Events may be purchased online!  Guests may also call the Bowlus Office at (620) 365-4765 or visit us through the EAST entrance at 205 E. Madison Ave. in Iola, Kansas.  Office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. 

Remaining tickets will be available for sale the day of the event at the Box Office located in lobby of the Main Auditorium.  The Box Office opens 1 hour before show time.

Tickets purchased for Bowlus events are non-refundable.  We hate to see empty seats --  so if you have purchased tickets for a Bowlus event but are unable to attend, please do one of the following:

1) Pay it forward and give your tickets away to a friend or family member!

2) Sell your tickets for the original purchase price. (You may call the Bowlus Office to confirm the purchase price.)

3) Return your tickets to the Bowlus Office or to the Box Office in the main lobby the night of the show.  The Bowlus can not refund your money, but we can help find someone happy to use your ticket(s).

For tickets returned 48 hours prior to the event (or by 4:00pm the Wednesday prior to a Saturday evening show), the Bowlus will accept the tickets as a charitable contribution and provide a receipt (total to include purchase price plus sales tax paid) which can be used for tax purposes.

Odd numbered rows (100's, 300's, 500's, 700's) require chairs to be turned around to face the stage after refreshments are served.
