Entrance ramps and elevator access are available on both the upper and lower levels.

Wheelchair-accessible seating is available in the front center row of the theatre, and the front row of all three seating areas are floor-level for those patrons who may not wish to climb stairs.

Companion seats are reserved in the second and third rows behind the accessible seating. According to ADA Standards, patrons purchasing companion seats must also purchase at least one accessible seat. We are able to sell companion seats without an accessible seat once all of the accessible seats are sold OR once the entire center section is sold. Out of respect for our patrons with mobility issues, we ask that able-bodied patrons avoid purchasing accessible seats online if other seats are available.

Assisted listening devices and large print programs are available at our Box Office for all performances.
