How Do I Print My Tickets At Home?

The print at home tickets will arrive in a separate email from This usually comes 5-10 minutes after the order confirmation email, and it will have the tickets attached as a PDF file. Be sure to print all pages if there are multiple tickets in the order. 


Because of the attachment from an unknown email, it can sometimes be filtered as spam or junk, so we suggest checking those folders. If the email with the tickets doesn’t arrive after 24 hours, contact the Shubert Ticket Office at 203-562-5666, and they can re-send it or have the tickets held at the Box Office for you.

Food & Toy Drive

Patrons are encouraged to bring donations of non-perishable food items and new, unwrapped toys when they attend performances at the Shubert Theatre through December 31.


The Shubert is partnering with New Haven’s Board of Alders as part of their continuing effort to assist the residents of the City. Donations from this year’s food drive will benefit New Haven food pantries. Toys will be distributed to families through the New Haven Fire Department.
