Section A – $40
(center orchestra or front mezzanine)

Section B – $30
(side orchestra or mid-mezzanine)

Section C – $20

ADA Seats are $20 – $40

Our theatre seats 600 in a comfortable, tiered auditorium. The 21 rows provide intimacy with the actors on stage, and there is excellent visibility, with no obstructions, from all seats. The first 10 (ten) rows in the orchestra section are on a slight slope, headed down toward the raised stage. The remaining 11 (eleven) rows (mezzanine section) are similar to a stadium style seating where there is a stair/step between each row. i.e. to get to row AA, you must go up one step, row BB, up two steps, etc.
