The resale of event tickets in Texas is not illegal. Even when a ticket broker is operating within the law, you still pay much more than the original ticket price.  Although the website appears to be official and may include Alley Theatre’s logo, they are often a third party ticketing site and are not authorized to sell tickets on behalf of Alley Theatre.

  • We are not responsible or liable for tickets purchased through a third party ticket website or box office.
  • We cannot replace your tickets if they are lost or stolen.
  • We are unable to assist you if there is anything wrong with your order.
