Additional Information

Our performances often sell out, so we recommend that you make your reservations early. In the event that a performance is sold out, we will enact our waiting list protocol. We begin taking names for each waiting list when the box office opens one hour prior to the performance. You must be present in the theater to place your name on the list, and you must be present when your name is called. Seats are released in order of availability, with the priority going first to season ticket holders. We have had excellent luck seating waiting list patrons. If you wish to see a play and hear it is sold out, we encourage you to come try your luck. There are snacks available in the lobby, a coffee shop is just around the corner and we have one of the best views of the city in town. On pretty days, you can bring a picnic and have dinner on the hillside while you wait.

Please Note
All sales are final and your ticket is not refundable. Late-comers are seated at the discretion of the house manager. Unclaimed seats at curtain time are subject to release to patrons on standby.

No firearms are permitted on campus, either open or concealed.
