Cameras & Device
Cameras and recording equipment are not permitted in the theatres during performances.  As a consideration to other patrons, please ensure that mobile phones and other devices are turned off while in the theatres.

Latecomers & Lockouts
Patrons arriving at the theatre after the show has commenced may only be admitted at the discretion of management, and at a convenient break in the program.

Some performances have strict lockout policies where you may not enter the theatre if you are late.  Please check the website or call the box office if you have any concerns.

Dress Requirements
There’s no strict dress code when you come to the theatre. We encourage you to dress for comfort and the weather. Some people like to dress up for a special occasion, and others are more casual. It can get chilly in our venues, so an extra layer is useful.

Age Recommendations
While we provide age recommendations for shows, parental discretion is advised.

Pre-Show Reminders
To make sure you don’t miss a thing, we’ll send you a ticket reminder one to two days before your chosen performance. Please provide your email address when booking.
