Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a limit for the number of tickets I can get?
We hope to reach as many people as possible each year through the Tree. We request that everyone ask only for tickets that they will use themselves. We accommodate a LIMITED number of group ticket requests, usually from churches located a good distance from Abilene Baptist Church.
How long does each presentation last?
Approximately 90 minutes.
Can I bring my children to the Singing Christmas Tree? Do each of my children need a ticket?
Everyone coming to the presentation needs a ticket. We recommend children from birth through K-5 take advantage of our wonderful childcare area. If a child becomes disruptive, we would ask that they be taken to the childcare area or the foyer area.
Do you have any special seating for elderly or handicapped guests?
We have a limited number of areas for wheelchair seating. We recommend anyone needing extra time to be seated arrive as soon as possible.
Can I attend a different day/time than my ticket?
We use the tickets to balance out the seating for the 4 presentations. We seat those with tickets for the particular presentation first. Others are seated at 15 minutes prior to the presentation if seating is available.
Is there standing area or a waiting list once tickets sell out?
We seat those with tickets for the particular presentation first. Others are seated at 15 minutes prior to the presentation if seating is available. Once the room is filled to capacity, we have limited seating available where the presentation may be seen via TV monitors. There is no standing area or waiting list.
