Audience Etiquette

(Please share with students)

Actors love to perform just for you… the audience. But they need your cooperation. While on stage they can hear and see what the audience does, so please keep the following guidelines in mind:

  • No non-performance related talking or gesturing
  • Turn off all electronic devices (cell phones, iPods, cameras, alarms on watches, etc.)
  • No throwing objects or spitting 
  • No photographing or recording the performance

Please help us keep our buildings beautiful during your visit:

  • No gum, food or drinks are allowed in the theater
  • No smoking in the building
  • Please keep your feet on the floor (not on the seat)
  • No sliding on the banisters
