While Inside the Theater
Cameras, Cell Phones, and All Manner of Recording Devices
The use of recording devices and flash photography is strictly prohibited. Many, but not all, artists and performers now allow audience cell phone photos and videos for use on social media. Please check with our staff to clarify the policies for your event.
Mobile devices (and any other noise-making devices) should be silenced and put away prior to the start of the performance. We ask all guests to please refrain from texting or using a cell phone during the performance as the light can be distracting to the performers and other audience members.
We encourage you to share your experiences with us on social media, but we ask you wait until after the show or during intermission to avoid disturbing other audience members.
All patrons (including children) are required to have their own ticket for ticketed events and should occupy the seats indicated on their tickets. For the safety of others, please keep all personal belongings under your seat and out of the aisles.
Children ages five and up are welcome to attend performances at the Scheidegger Center.
As a courtesy to fellow theater patrons and the performers, late arrivals will be seated at the discretion of management at an appropriate point in the performance.
