"The only valid restriction should be (b+g)<2k  i.e. not enough tickets to please all the students."
For there not to be enough tickets to please all the students, II believe the inequality should be (b+g)>2k, as (b+g) is the size of the group and 2k is the number of promotional theatre tickets. If the group size is less than the number of tickets, there would be excess tickets and each of the group would be able to be a theatregoer.
If I did it right, a formula for the general case can be the following:
SUMMATION (t = 1 to k) :
g!*b!*(b+g2k)!*(2k)!*(gkt)! / ((b+g)!*(b+gkt)!*((k+t)!*(kt)!)^2)
