Plan Your Visit

Going to the theater might seem a lot like going to the movies, but there is one big difference: the actors are performing for you live on stage, and they can see and hear what goes on in the audience just as you can see and hear them. Coming to the theatre is a special experience, one that you will remember for a lifetime. Everyone in the audience has been looking forward to seeing the performance just as much as you have, so it’s very important to remember the rules of theater etiquette. 

Clap when you see or hear something you like. Applauding for the actors is a way you can show them how much you enjoyed it. Applause is a sound actors love to hear! 
If you think something is funny, go ahead and laugh. 
Go to the bathroom before the show. Avoid leaving your seat until intermission.
Do your part, throw away your garbage, nobody likes a litterbug.

Do not enter the stage area before, during or after a performance.
Do not reach out to touch actors.
Do not speak to the actors during the performance.
Do not touch set pieces or props
Don’t talk during the performance. If you need to speak, please whisper or wait till intermission as not disturb others sitting around you.
Do not kick the seat in front of you.

What should I do with my electronics?
Shut them all off. Turn off cell phones and beepers/pagers during a performance. Part of the fun is imagining you are really in the story, an electronic sound can take others out of the story and that’s no fun.

Can I bring my own snacks to the show?
No outside food is permitted.

What should I do if my children are restless during the show? 
Chronically noisy or loud children should be taken out of the auditorium. It’s only fair to those around you. If a crying child does not respond to soothing, take the child to the lobby.
