We have 8 handicap accessible seats on the main loor with companion seating.

At this time the balcony is not handicap accessible. It is tiered and there are no handrails on the steps. If you have trouble negotiating steps without a railing we suggest main floor seating only.

There is a Handicap Accessible restroom on the main floor next to the concession stand as well as handicap stalls in the Mens and Womens restrooms on the lower level.

The main box office door can be opened with a handicap push control during all theater performances.

Ushers or other theater personnel are happy to assist anyone needing extra assistance.

Sometimes new patrons ask What should I wear? Theater is fun and historically had been a great time to dress up, however, we encourage our patrons to relax and enjoy the show in comfort. While some patrons wear fancy dresses or business suits, others may wear a sport jacket or nice pants outfit/dress. And there are many patrons who choose to wear a clean pair of jeans or nice shorts and a polo style shirt. Absolutely any of these wardrobe choices are perfect!
