The Performing Arts Center offers wheelchair accessible and companion seating in each price section on the Orchestra, Mezzanine, and Dress Circle levels. Patrons in wheelchairs also have the option of transferring to designated seats. Please contact the Box Office to reserve wheelchair seating or request assistance.
The Performing Arts Center typically opens to the public one hour prior to the performance. The theatre will open no sooner than 30 minutes prior to the performance. Ushers will direct you to your seat and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the Performing Arts Center’s amenities.
After a performance has started, those patrons arriving late will be admitted into the theatre only at appropriate times specified by and at the discretion of the artists and Performing Arts Center staff. Ticketed seat locations are not guaranteed past the scheduled curtain time printed on tickets.
Please refrain from using your cell phones during the performance and either turn them off or place them on silent to prevent disturbances. In a dark theatre, the bright light from a cell phone can be very distracting to the audience and performers.
The use of any photographic, video or audio recording devices inside the theater, without written permission of the management, is strictly prohibited. Any such device being used during a performance is subject to confiscation until the end of the performance.
There are two bars located in the Performing Arts Center lobby where various mixed drinks, beer, wine, sodas, and candy can be purchased. The bars begin serving patrons one hour before the performance begins unless otherwise advertised.
Programming is made possible in part by state tax dollars allocated by the Ohio Legislature to the Ohio Arts Council (OAC). The OAC is a state agency that funds and supports quality arts experiences to strengthen Ohio communities culturally, educationally, and economically.
