Seeing our plays:
1. Does the theatre have a dress code? What is the typical attire?
While the Alliance Theatre does not have an official dress code, most patrons opt to wear business casual attire. The Alliance does, however, adhere to a strict no shirt, no shoes, no show policy. Note that all of our facilities are air conditioned/heated for your comfort — please dress appropriately.
2. How can I know if a particular show will be appropriate for my child or teen?
Information regarding content disclaimers and recommended ages for particular shows may be found on the specific production information page by viewing our production listings. For most shows, children under five years of age are not typically admitted (this does not apply to our Kathy & Ken Bernhardt Theatre for the Very Young program — it is designed specifically for children under five).
3. What if I lose something in the theatre, where is the lost and found?
Personal items found in the theatre are kept in the House Manger’s office for 24-48 hours. The items are then turned in to the Woodruff Arts Center security office and may be picked up there.
4. Can I use my phone/tablet/laptop during a performance?
No — using devices with screens (and particularly ones that also make sounds) disrupts the cast and other patrons (they are very visible from the stage). The best thing to do in order to avoid distracting others is to make sure your device is powered off before entering the theatre. However, we absolutely hope that you text/tweet/facebook everyone you know after the performance to let them know what a great time you had here!
5. What if I'm late?
If you already have your tickets, please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the show. If your tickets are being held at the Box Office or you need to purchase tickets, we recommend arriving at least 30 minutes prior to the show. After the performance has begun, it may not be possible to seat you in your assigned seat. If there is an appropriate pause in the production, we will do our best to seat you toward the back of the theater in order to avoid disrupting the performance (you will be able to watch the show from a monitor in the lobby until we can sneak you in). However, please note that some productions simply will not accommodate late seating.
6. Miscellaneous tips:
- Please unwrap all gum and cough drop wrappers before you enter the theatre
- Drinks and food purchased at the bars in the theatre lobby are allowed inside the theatre
- There is no smoking allowed in the theatre, lobby, or parking garage at any time
- Please avoid wearing strong perfumes or cologne — some patrons may be allergic
- No photography of any kind is allowed inside the theatre
- Management reserves the right to refuse admission

- We are committed to providing a world-class experience for you and your guests — if you're dissatisfied for any reason, please notify the House Manager at intermission and we'll work with you to make your experience better
- Electronic cigarettes and other approved incendiary devices may be used on stage during some productions. If you do not wish to be exposed to smoke, an usher will be happy to move you to a location away from the smoke in order to make your experience as enjoyable as possible.
