We recommend that you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to event time. Events start promptly at the published time. If you arrive late, you and your party will be seated at an appropriate pause in the program or at intermission. For events without an intermission, you will be seated at an appropriate interval at the discretion of the house manager; in some situations, this can mean being given an alternate seat for the entirety of the event.
