I keep recieving an error on lines of code 77-80 and I'm not really sure what I'm doing wrong. They're all the same error and goes as follows:
----jGRASP exec: javac -g Program5.java

Program5.java:72: error: cannot find symbol
            adultTickets = adultTicketPriceTextField.getText();
  symbol:   variable adultTicketPriceTextField
  location: class Program5.buttonListener
Program5.java:73: error: cannot find symbol
            adultSales = adultTicketSoldTextField.getText();
  symbol:   variable adultTicketSoldTextField
  location: class Program5.buttonListener
Program5.java:74: error: cannot find symbol
            childTickets = childTicketPriceTextField.getText();
  symbol:   variable childTicketPriceTextField
  location: class Program5.buttonListener
Program5.java:75: error: cannot find symbol
            childSales = childTicketSoldTextField.getText();
  symbol:   variable childTicketSoldTextField
  location: class Program5.buttonListener
4 errors

 ----jGRASP wedge2: exit code for process is 1.
 ----jGRASP: operation complete.

Here is my code:

Make sure the variables are defined in the same scope (within the same pair of {}s) as where you are trying to use them. They need to be defined at the class level if you are going to reference them in different methods.

So if I move the

            JTextField adultTicketPriceTextField;   
              JTextField adultTicketSoldTextField;
              JTextField childTicketPriceTextField;
              JTextField childTicketSoldTextField;

up above the constructor Program5, I'll be good, right? And also where can I put a main in here because anywhere I put it gives me errors and I can't run without it.

Nevermind, got it. Thanks :D
