General Sold Out Crowd Questions

Discretion is how we get such great shows. If we told the general public about our bigger shows (and we get them often), producers would never list free tickets with us. For this reason, you must now join us in order to see what we offer. But don’t worry! We have a money back guarantee .

If you join us and decide we are not for you, contact us within the first 30 days and as long as you have not reserved any tickets, we will give you a full refund, no questions asked. To date we have signed up over 1000 members and only a handful have ever asked for this refund. Trust us. Our listings are amazing. That is why your friends told you about us!

Every theatre is different but members should expect to dress slightly nicer than the average person going to the theatre. Some of the smaller theatres are fine with a more casual approach while other theatres will request business attire. Any special dress code requests will be included in the listing.

Flip-flops, tank tops, and other beachwear are never appropriate. When in doubt, business casual is always a safe choice. “But I saw a guy there in jeans and a t-shirt!” Yes, but remember, he probably paid for his ticket!

Sold Out Crowd is providing an important service to theaters in exchange for complimentary tickets. As with any business, the better service you provide, the more business you’ll receive. In our case, this means “strict rules = better shows.” We could be much more lenient, but then you’d have nothing to see!

Processing fees help to cover the difficult and time-consuming process of requesting and distributing complimentary tickets. They also help to ensure that people will not take free tickets for granted by deciding at the last minute not to honor their reservations. Almost every ticketing company in existence charges a processing fee, and most charge more than we do. In our case, the small fee is just enough to keep our doors open so we can continue to offer you great shows in the future.

Current Member Questions

When you order your tickets, we send you a confirmation email. If you don’t see it in your in-box, check your spam folder. If it ended up there, it is best to add to your email address book.

You can also view, print and cancel reservations by logging on to the site and clicking My Account and then “My RSVPs” in the dropdown menu. Please only cancel if you really must, as chronic cancellations can make things difficult for the producers who are so generous to us.

We are always up for suggestions. If you hear about a show that you’d like to see on our site, feel free to email us and we’ll do our best. Please keep in mind, however, that if a show is selling out, producers will not have any interest in giving away free tickets. Also, please make sure that the show you are suggesting has performances within the next 2 weeks.

We email confirmations within minutes of your order. If you do not see it in your inbox, it is likely that it ended up in your spam folder. If you find it there, please add to your email address book so that future emails from us can get to you.

If you do not find it in your spam folder, contact us and we’ll investigate. Either way, members can always view, change and print confirmations by logging on to our site and clicking on “My RSVP’s” from the My Account dropdown. Confirmations can also be viewed and printed by clicking the link on the confirmation page, which appears once the order is complete.

When a valid card is declined, it is almost always because the address or the zip code provided does not match the billing zip code for the credit card being submitted. Please check with your bank or credit card company to make sure you are entering in the correct information.

When you attempt to make a payment, our site puts a hold on the funds. This sometimes appears on your card as though the charge has gone through; however, if the charge is declined, the hold is dropped within 24-48 hours. All held funds for declined charges are released back into your account shortly.

Extra tickets are subject to availability after all other members have had an opportunity to order their tickets first. If you would like extra tickets, you are welcome to contact us with this request and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

The site keeps the most up to date information. If it says sold out, it is simply because we are out of tickets for that particular date. 1 ticket left means that we only have 1 ticket left. Having said that, we’ll always do our best to acquire more tickets to shows that prove popular among our members.

Feel free to check back later to see if additional tickets have been added.

Tickets are on a first come, first served basis. Sold Out Crowd does not oversee a waitlist in order to keep administrative costs down while keeping our rates as low as possible and theatre accessible for our members.

Reset Your Password

Some computers have trouble with our password reset function. If you experience any problems resetting your password, simply contact us with the new password and we’ll take care of it for you.

Once you’ve reset your password, you will receive a confirmation email. If you don’t receive this, please check your spam folder.

As stated in our membership agreement, SOC does not refund processing fees unless the show is canceled or a member is bumped (which happens infrequently).

We never know when we’ll get the next show, but we always list show tickets as soon as possible. The best way to find out if we have added a show is to check the notification on our website that tells you when we last updated.

We also encourage you to request to be put on the “contact me as often as possible” list. We rarely send out more than 3 emails a week to this list, and it is a great way of staying up to date about what we have recently offered.
