Plan to arrive at least one hour before the time shown on your ticket. This allows for plenty of time for you to pick up your tickets at the box office, show your proof of vaccination, find your seat and place your drink order for the intermission as well as allows for unexpected transportation delays. Patrons are asked to arrive between 6:00 and 7:00 pm for performances beginning at 7:30 pm and between 12:30 and 1:30 pm for performances starting at 2:00 pm to allow enough time for front of house staff to check documents and tickets.
There is no dress code for performances. You should come in whatever you feel comfortable in but please take the chance to get dressed up if you feel so inclined!
There is no eating or drinking within the auditorium however, drinks and light snacks are available before the performance begins as well as during intermission in the lobby space. Please be aware that all patrons must wear a mask when not eating or drinking.
