Do I need tickets to a show to attend?

Nope, our First Thursday Happy Hour Event is free to attend and open to the public!

If I’m staying for the show, do I need to leave after Happy Hour?

Nope, stay and enjoy our lobby bar! We schedule our Happy Hour before that night’s performance, so there is time for First Thursday visitors before our doors open to show patrons one hour before the performance. We offer a discount on tickets to that night’s performance to encourage you to stay for the show! Of course, you are welcome to leave the theater and come back but seating begins 30 minutes before the show starts, and there is no late seating, so please hurry back.

Do you offer information for first-time patrons or things that are handy to know beforehand?

Yep, we offer a selection of area restaurants, plus other FAQs, on our Know Before You Go page.
