A limited amount of reserved seating is available for all shows for $25 per person. Get the best seats in the house without having to get there early!

General admission tickets can be purchased online by credit card or at the entrance by cash or check.

Reserved seating must be ordered in advance online. For reserved seating, we will set up and reserve a chair for you in the first two rows of chairs closest to the stage. The chairs we set up for you will be simple metal folding chairs, but you are welcome to bring your own lawn chairs and switch them out when you arrive. Please arrive at least 5-10 minutes before the performance begins to be sure you can be seated without disrupting the performance.

For general admission seating, we recommend you arrive early to get the best seats.

We have some metal folding chairs available, but we encourage you to bring your own lawn chairs or blankets, as well as picnics, etc.

What to bring:

  • Lawn chairs, blankets, picnics, etc.
  • If the weather is cloudy, you may wish to bring an umbrella or rain coat. Performances will continue during most weather, but may have to be stopped (at least temporarily) if severe weather or thunderstorms develop. We will try to continue the performance after the storm has passed if possible.


  • Audience members are welcome to take non-flash still photographs for personal use only.
  • Video recording, audio recording, and flash photography are prohibited.

Rain Policy:

Performances are rarely cancelled ahead of time, since weather forecasts can change frequently before the start time. If there is a very high chance of thunderstorms, a decision may be made to cancel the show approximately two hours before the start time.

Once a performance has started, it will continue in most weather as long as the audience wants to stay. We may need to stop the performance in the event of heavy rain.

We are required for safety reasons to stop in the event of a thunderstorm, but we will attempt to continue the performance after the storm passes if possible.

No refunds can be given due to bad weather unless an entire performance is cancelled in advance. We will be happy to transfer your reservations to another performance with the same ticket pricing if you email us and request a transfer prior to the show for which you have a reservation. If you wish to transfer to a performance with different ticket pricing, there may be an additional charge to make up the difference.
