Can I bring my camera?

Pictures are NOT permitted during the performance you are seeing. However, you may take photos of yourselves with the actors on stage after the performance you are attending.

What is the theater etiquette?

The theater is not like anywhere else. When the audience laughs at jokes or applauds a great performance, the actors, dancers, and singers hear it and know all their hard work was worth it. Unfortunately, the performers also hear other sounds – talking, ringing cell phones, crying children, and the crinkling of candy wrappers. Did you know the actors can even see the light from your cell phone when you write a text message? It’s true. All those distractions upset the actors’ performance and also disturb other audience members. That’s why we ask that you please follow a few simple ground rules:

Turn off all cell phones and other devices and leave them off throughout the show.

Resist the urge to talk – remember, the actors and the other patrons can hear you.

If you’re with young children who start to grow restless and noisy, take them out to the lobby. All shows are streamed live to the flat screen TV in the lobby.

If you have cough drops or other items that come in noisy wrappers, please open them before the show begins.

And if someone is disturbing your ability to enjoy the show, talk to one of our ushers—they’re ready to help.

Also, just like movie theaters, we do not allow picture-taking or filming during the show and ask that you please keep your feet away from the seat in front of you.

So make yourself comfortable, have a great time and don’t forget to help make magic happen – applaud when you see something you like!
