We hope that you take these into consideration so that everyone may enjoy the show in comfort without distractions or interruptions. • Please silence all cell phones and electronic devices. • Please refrain from talking during the performance. Please do not take any photos or videos of the performance, these acts are prohibited in our general policies. • Please remove your hat so that patrons behind you can see. • Please limit heavy perfumes or colognes; others around you may be sensitive or allergic. • If you must leave your seat during a performance, please do so as quietly as possible. • Please be kind and stay until after the cast bows. The performers work extremely hard to give the public an enjoyable show. It would be greatly appreciated if you share your enthusiasm. • If any problem should arise and you would like to speak with a theatre representative, please ask your usher for immediate assistance or see a house manager in the main lobby.
