Plan a Visit
Seating begins 30 minutes before curtain. Late seating is at the discretion of the House Manager. Even though your seats are reserved, we recommend arriving in the area 30 minutes prior to the start time of the performance. This will allow you time to find parking. While parking is abundant, we are in an area of Columbus that is seeing increased activity.
