What Happens If I'm Late To The Show?

To cause the least amount of disruption to the performance and to other patrons, if you arrive late you'll be seated at the discretion of the House Manager. You might not be seated in your assigned seats until intermission.

There is no dress code at Renaissance Theaterworks. We do ask that you refrain from wearing perfumes, colognes or lotions with strong aromas — your fellow patrons with allergies or sensitivities will thank you.
