Gentle Reminders

  • Turning off watch alarms, phones and pagers for the duration of the performance is important. If you are concerned about missing an emergency call, you may leave your name, device and seat location with an usher and they will alert you if a call comes through.
  • Children old enough to enjoy performances are welcome. A ticket must be purchased for any child attending a performance regardless of age. Children must be seated where a parent or guardian can supervise them. Babes in arms are not permitted except for children’s shows.
  • Please wait to discuss the performance until intermission or after the performance ends. Even whispers carry.
  • Please refrain from unwrapping cough drops or candy in the auditorium during the performance as it is a distraction for others.
  • Please be modest with your use of fragrances when attending performances so that those with allergies can also enjoy the performance.
