For our Handel's Messiah Sing-Along, admission is $15 and is collected at the door only, in cash or check form - there are no advance tickets sold. We arrange to have a full orchestra to accompany us, and the solo parts of Messiah will be performed by auditioned singers. Everyone who attends may join in singing the chorus parts. For singers who wish to sit with others in their voice part, there will be signs among the pews denoting voice sections. For guests who come to listen, seating is first-come first served, and the church is very spacious so there is no difficulty accommodating everyone who attends, including guests with wheelchairs.


Tickets for our Autumn Dessert Cabaret are $ 20 at the door for General Adult, $10 for Students, and children 12 and under are free. To pay the DISCOUNT PRICE for Adult Tickets ($15), we will post an online link to Eventbrite approximately a month before the show.  Seating at the Cabaret is first come, first served, there are no specifically reserved seats. Most cabaret tables seat 4 people, with some larger tables available if needed.


Tickets purchased at the door are $25 for Adults and $20 for Seniors /Students. Cash or check only please. Make any checks out to BCGSS. There is an ATM in the Student Center building on the campus, but not in the Life Sciences building.

Tickets purchased thru Eventbrite online receive a discount of approximately $4 over the door price.  Ticket sales online stop approximately 1 hour before the show starts.

You do not have to print tickets at your home as before, and you will not need mobile tickets on your phone. Once you reserve and pay for your tickets through Eventbrite online, your name and ticket quantity will be recorded on our Will Call list and you will receive a confirmation email. Then when you come to see the show, just come to the Box Office Desk to give your name, and you will be handed admittance tickets to the theater.

Since your tickets purchased online will be on the Will Call list under your name, if you are purchasing tickets for friends who may arrive separately from you, please make sure they know to give YOUR name at the Box Office Desk.

If you have a COMP TICKET because you or your company have advertised or supported our group, you do not need to make a reservation. Please bring the physical ticket to the performance you wish to attend, and when you enter DelVal's Life Sciences building lobby you may bypass the line at the 'Will Call' table, because you already have your ticket in hand. Doors to the theater itself open approximately a half hour before the show. When the doors open, just hand the comp ticket to an usher stationed near the theater door to be admitted. Seats are not reserved, they are first-come first-serve.

Wheelchair seating is available at the theater. There are 2 floor spaces and 2 mezzanine spaces reserved for a wheelchair and a comapnion. If you know you will need a wheelchair accessible seat among your party, kindly call Pat at 215-348-4837 at least a day before the show so we can prepare an usher to assist you. 

Hearing aid amplification is available in a limited supply in the theater. We have 3 'Loop' or 'T-Coil' (telecoil) devices for use with a guest's hearing aid. You MUST reserve one of the devices at least one day prior to your attending, by calling Pat at 215-348-4837 to make arrangements.

Seating for our show is first-come first-serve, no specific seating placements are reserved. We will follow the current CDC guidelines regarding capacity and safety measures. We open the theater for seating approximately 1/2 hour before the curtain time. There is a large comfortable lobby at the Life Sciences building, which opens earlier, where patrons can wait until we open the theater section. Since our shows have grown in popularity, we recommend you arrive at the theater at least 1/2 hour before curtain time to pick up your tickets. 

Will-Call desk. In the lobby we will have a Will-Call desk. If you buy thru Eventbrite, come to the lobby on the day of your performance, go to the Will-Call desk, give your name and the number of tickets and our Will-Call staff will hand you your tickets. You can then enter the theater area and be seated.

Accessibility. The Life Sciences Building is accessible by wheelchair via a ramp in front, and by a ground-floor entrance in the back of the building. See HERE for more specifics on (H) parking. There are 4 wheelchair-designated seats on the floor of the theater and 2 wheelchair-designated seats in the mezzanine area, and an elevator to reach the mezzanine.

Parking: Enter the Delaware Valley University campus from New Britain Road, make a right onto Admissions Drive, and the first right into Parking Lot C, which is right in front of the Life Sciences Building. If Parking Lot C is filled, there are other lots around the campus (all are free) where you may park, though all are a bit further from which to walk. Directions and a campus map with parking shown is HERE.   The popularity of our shows may cause Parking Lot C to fill, which is another reason to try to arrive early for best parking.
