Are badges refundable?

All sales are final. There are no refunds on badges for any reason.

Can I upgrade my badge?

Email info@austintheatre.org for inquiries regarding upgrading your badge. As long as the other levels are not sold out, we should be able to accommodate.

What about age restrictions? Can underage patrons get into shows?

There is no age restriction on the festival as a whole and minors can purchase badges or single tickets to the Paramount shows. However, some of our Moontower venues are 18+ and, due to their liquor licensing/permit, are not able to let in underage patrons regardless of the event.

The following venues are all ages: Paramount, Stateside at the Paramount, 800 Congress, Antone’s

These venues are 18+ only: The Parish, Cap City, The Speakeasy, The Townsend, and The Velv Comedy Lounge.

What time do doors open for performances?

If you’re attending the first show of the night at the Paramount or Stateside Theatres, doors will open one hour before showtime. We recommend getting there early and enjoying a drink. After that, typically doors will open 30 minutes prior to showtime. Other venues will open doors 30 minutes prior to showtime for all shows. These are rules of thumb only and actual times may vary by venue depending on size.

How do I line up?

If I want to see the next show at the same venue, can I just stay in my seat?

We will be clearing venues completely between shows so we can clean up and prepare for the next round of fans.

Where do I submit materials to be considered as a performer at the festival?

Thank for your interest in Moontower! Unfortunately we do not take unsolicited requests for submissions. Our booking staff works diligently throughout the year and scours the comedy earth to find Moontower artists. Perhaps one day the Moontower light will shine on you! Good luck and thank you for your understanding.
