Theatre Etiquette / Dress Code

Etiquette

Learning proper theater etiquette allows you to avoid embarrassment and lets everyone have a wonderful time at the performance. Disruptions create issues with other audience members and can also be dangerous to the performers.

Here are a few simple basic etiquette tips.

  • Be punctual. Plan to arrive at least 30 minutes to the venue giving yourself plenty of time to find the right parking spot and to find your seat. If you arrive late, you may be asked to wait for intermission or a time when it is best for you to be seated.
  • Avoid wearing a hat, large hair accessories, or big hairstyles (including tall buns) so as not to block the view of the people sitting around and behind you.
  • Silence all cell phones, alarms, and any other electronic devices. Avoid using devices during performance.  We offer an intermission after Act I for your convenience. Absolutely no photography or video is permitted during performances.
  • Avoid talking, whispering, singing, or humming during the performance. Beverages and snacks are available for purchase during  intermission in the foyer.
  • Visit the restroom before the show or during intermission. If you need to use the restroom frequently, we recommend you choose a seat that is on the aisle.
  • Please keep feet on the floor and not rested on seats. Do not allow children to kick or climb on seats or play in the aisles.
  • Performers enjoy your enthusiastic applause. At the end of scenes or dances, it is customary to applaud the dancers.
  • Always wait until the performers have taken their final bows before leaving the theater
  • No photography or videoing is allowed during performances. This is a distraction for our dancers and also violates copyright. Anyone that violates our policy will be asked to leave.
  • Attending a performance can be an exciting time for a young child. Be sure to select the appropriate performance and discuss proper manners prior to attending. Every child must have their own seat and sit in the seat. Children sitting on laps can be an obstruction to other patrons. Children should never be left unattended.
  • Be courteous and respectful to other patrons and volunteers.
  • Sit in your seat properly to avoid blocking the view of others.
  • Please be seated in your assigned seat in order to avoid confusion to other patrons.  

Dress Code

The ballroom and resort does not have a specific dress code for performances for patrons, although we typically find patrons dressed in business casual attire. If you are celebrating something special, feel free to dress for the occasion. A nice pair of jeans is also appropriate.

Keep in mind the ballroom can sometimes be chilly, so we recommend that you consider a sweater or jacket.
