What should I wear?

Generally, it depends on the performance. We do not have a specific dress code, so do what feels right.

Why do my tickets say right or left? Why am I not center?

Sections are determined by which door is closest to the seat. Since there are no center doors, tickets say either “right” or “left.” Please see our seating chart or call the ticket office to confirm your seat location.

Valet parking was offered in past seasons but due to logistic concerns was discontinued in 2008.
