  • The taking of pictures or recording any part of the performance is strictly prohibited. It is distracting to our performers and audience members and violates terms of our royalty agreements. However, for many performances, the actors will come into the theatre or to the lobby after the show and you are welcome to then take as many pictures as you wish!
  • All mobile devices must be turned off during the show.
  • In consideration of those who have allergies, scents should not be worn to our performances.
  • Only bottled water is allowed in the theatre auditorium.
  • Should you wish to partake in a candy or lozenge, please unwrap them before the performance begins.
  • Unless there is an emergency, plan to stay seated during the performance.
  • Please be quiet during the performance. Should a patron become restless, management may ask the patron to leave the auditorium.
