A: A group leader/contact is responsible for distributing tickets to group members. Once full payment is received, group tickets can either be:
- Mailed to the group leader to be distributed to individual group members in advance.

Tickets purchased less than 2 weeks before the performance must be picked up at the Box Office. The Wilma is not responsible for distributing individual tickets to group members.

A: Group members should arrive 30 minutes prior to the start time of the show. Performances begin promptly at the times listed on the tickets/invoice/receipt. Group members arriving late will be seated at an appropriate time during the show, according to the discretion of the House Manager.
