Frequently asked questions

Yes! You can fill out the online form and pay for your order. 

As long as you received an email confirmation that your order was placed, your purchase is complete and will be processed in the order in which it is received. We will send your tickets in the mail with an information letter as long as your order was placed three weeks before the performance date. If placed after that time, your tickets will be available for pick up at will call on the day of your performance.

If you place your order and do not receive an email confirmation or do not receive any tickets in the mail within two weeks of placing your order, please email us at [email protected]

Girl Scout tickets are $35 per person plus a $4 service fee per ticket. For this price, you receive a “B” ticket, meaning that you will be seated in the best available seats in what is normally priced as the $58 section. This ticket price includes the Girl Scout workshop, Nutcracker performance, and a Girl Scout Badge for your Girl Scout(s).

Absolutely! Every person in your group will attend the workshop and performance, and receives the same Girl Scout ticket rate.

This year, the workshop focuses on educating Girl Scouts about the behind the scenes aspects of our production. They will go on a backstage tour of the theatre, and get to see the inner workings of The Nutcracker by viewing sets, costumes, and more!

No, we do not sell workshop tickets individually. All workshop tickets must be linked to a performance ticket in order to gain admission.

There is usually some time between, and we encourage Girl Scouts to grab a bite to eat during this time. Groups are welcome to attend the workshop and come back for their scheduled performance.

Unlike years past, we are now combining the ticket for the performance and workshop, so everyone in your group will receive one ticket each (not two tickets each). If you receive your tickets and do not have the correct number as ordered, please contact our office immediately at 408-286-9905.

Badges will be distributed to the person who placed the ticket order on the day of the performance, before your workshop. All badges that are not picked up before the workshop begins will be available at the theatre’s lobby tour table.

No. We sometimes have just a mother and daughter, and other times there are groups of 40+. As long as you are a Girl Scout, then you may attend and do not necessarily have to attend with your troop. Either way, you must provide a troop number.

You will receive the next best available seats in another section. We do everything we can to seat your group together, but the sooner you call to place your order, the better!

Yes! We have a wonderful holiday Nutcracker boutique open at each performance that is full of Nutcrackers, ornaments, clothing, jewelry, and more. These make great souvenirs for your Girl Scouts to remember their Nutcracker experience! We accept cash and credit card.

The workshop is about an hour long, and the performance is two hours long, which includes a 20-minute intermission.

For every Girl Scout ticket purchased, San Jose Dance Theatre will make a donation to the Girl Scouts. San Jose Dance Theatre values this long-standing relationship with the Girl Scouts!
