What to Expect From your Visit to the P.A.C.

  • Regardless of age, everyone must have a ticket.
  • Doors open 1 hour before shows. Plan to arrive at least 20 minutes before the start of the performance.
  • The average show has 2 acts with a 20 minute intermission. Plan accordingly when purchasing tickets.

Tips to Maximize your Enjoyment of the Performance

  • Familiarize your kids with the show before hand. Read books, watch the movie, listen to the soundtrack. It will help keep their attention and be easier for them to follow along.
  • Dress casual and comfortable but feel free to dress up if you like as well. Bring a sweater, sometimes it can get chilly.
  • Stop by the photo booth before every show for a fun (and free) commemorative snapshot!
  • Visit the bathroom before the show.
  • A limited amount of booster seats are available for public ticketed performances at the main coat check. Arrive early to ensure you get one.
  • Snacks and bottled water purchased at the Center are allowed in the theater. Try opening any packages before the act starts so you don’t disrupt others.
