Courtesy
The quiet enjoyment of the performance (please, no talking) is greatly appreciated by your neighbors and the performers. Ushers will be available during the show and at intermission at the back and middle of the theatre should you have concerns or require assistance. All mobile devices must be turned off or turned to silent mode during the performance. If a disruption occurs, devices will be confiscated and returned following the performance. The use of cameras (including cell phone cameras) and recording devices of any kind is strictly prohibited. Devices will be confiscated and returned following the show with the appropriate files deleted.

Assisted Listening Devices
Assisted Listening Devices are available to patrons for check out in the Gift Shop.

Blankets
In case you find the theatre chilly, for a small donation you can rent a blanket from our Front of House staff. Your donation will go towards the upkeep and purchase of the blankets. All blankets must be returned before leaving the theater.

Leaving Your Seat During A Performance
Please be aware that patrons who leave their seats during the performance will be seated at the House Manager’s discretion or at intermission and might not be able to return to previous seats.

Recycle
