  • There is ample motorcoach parking on the east side of the theater, facing Highway 17 Business. Please refer to the parking diagram on the right of this page.
  • A greeter will meet your group and take them directly to their seats. Please do not unload your group until instructed to do so.
  • There is a ramp located on the east side of the theater, allowing access to the auditorium without any steps, your greeter can help you locate this.

Late Seating Warning:

We recommend arrival no later than 30 minutes prior to show time. Many numbers require very low lighting, making it dangerous and distracting to seat large groups once the performance has started. For the safety of all involved, and to minimize disruption, late groups may be seated at the manager’s discretion when time allows in an appropriate seating area.

Group Sales FAQ

Will my group be seated together?

We do our best to ensure the entire group is seated together. However, depending on the size of the group and capacity on the requested date, you may benefit from better seating by dividing your group. We will reach out and keep you updated if this opportunity arises.

What if someone in my group has special seating needs?

We have wheelchair seating available for those that are not able to transfer to a theater seat. We do ask that you let us know as soon as possible if you will require accommodations for wheelchairs.

What if members of my group have mobility issues?

Our ground floor is entirely accessible without needing to climb a single stair; we have ramps on either side of our lobby entrance and no stairs on the ground floor of the auditorium.

How does my group receive their tickets?

Groups arriving via bus will be personally greeted and seated and will not need an actual ticket.

Groups arriving via individual cars will be required to pick up their tickets prior to the show date and will be responsible for distribution among the group.

Do you have designated bus parking and is there a parking fee?

We have ample complimentary on-site parking for individual cars and a large designated bus area. Please see the parking diagram above on this page.

Student Opportunities

“Music enhances the education of our children by helping them to make connections and broadening the depth with which they think and feel. If we are to hope for a society of culturally literate people, music must be a vital part of our children’s education.”  – Yo-Yo Ma
