Seating Layout

The seating is on one floor. There are aisles along each outer wall and a right and left aisle on each side of the center section. There is not a bad seat in the house. Due to the slope of the floor, ones vision is rarely blocked by someone in the row in front of you. The main hall has marvelous acoustics augmented by the tuned sound reflecting panels hung from the ceiling. The first array of loudspeakers for sound reinforcement or playing of recorded music is located directly above the stage and the next set is halfway over the audience seating area to the rear of the second catwalk. A digital delay in the amplification system compensates for the speaker spacing.

Seating Layout

There are several areas at the rear where the floor is flat that are designated locations for persons with wheel chairs. All of these locations are adjacent to regular seats. If requests are made 48 hours prior to the performance date the management will gladly reserve seats next to a wheel chair location so all members of a party can sit together if they so wish. There are some seats off all aisles near the back where arm rests can be raised to permit ease of access for disabled persons wishing to leave wheel chairs or walkers and sit in regular seats. Down front at the outside ends of the first row seats can be removed to accommodate wheel chairs. Since these seats must be unbolted from the floor, requests for these locations must be made 72 hours prior to the play date of a performance. Disabled persons utilizing motorized conveyances may park at designated areas of the flat portion at the rear or may traverse one of the side aisles (at their own risk) to park down front in the area where the seats can be removed; again, requests for these locations must be made 72 hours in advance of the performance. All motorized conveyances must fit through existing entrances.

For patrons wishing hearing assistance, there are eight (8) Telex Sound Mate Personal Listening Systems available for loan for any performance
