DCIM100GOPROAll seating for the Center for the Arts concerts and performances is by General Admission. The house opens one hour prior to showtime. Guests write their names on 3M Post-It Notes to reserve seats in our theater seating and original pews (balcony) on a first-come, first-served basis. If you’ve never been here before, it’s the only seating system of it’s kind in the world. We can’t prove that, but we’d wager you never saved your seat with a Post-It-Note before.


The Center does not offer refunds or exchanges. All sales are final. Please confirm your order carefully at time of purchase. This means you. No exceptions.

Tickets cannot be reserved without payment. Cash, Checks, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, Amex are accepted.

Unless tickets are purchased at the Box Office or printed at home, tickets will be held under the patron’s name for pick up at Will Call.

If you purchase tickets online, we highly recommend including your email (we never sell or share patron information, ever). This will enable you the option of printing your tickets at home (and allows you to skip the Box Office line on show night). It’s modern and nifty, and might make you feel a little special. Try it.

The Center does not send tickets via U.S. mail. To receive tickets in advance, please stop by the Box Office in person during regular business hours or one hour prior to showtime (did we mention you can print them at home?)


We have limited parking directly at the Center on show nights. You should not expect to park here.

Do NOT park in the American Legion parking lot, please (located directly across the street from the Center). There is a public lot BEHIND the American Legion where you may park. It is important for us to respect our Veteran’s and their space.

You may park on the street, but please pay attention to Village signs. It really stinks when we hear someone received a parking ticket. Please do not park in front of or in someone’s driveway. Our neighbors are very generous to live next door to an art center that oftentimes draws hundreds of guests to our otherwise quiet neighborhood. Please be respectful.

There is also FREE municipal parking in the “downtown” area, past the Village Green. We encourage you to park and stroll. 

Inclement Weather Policy

If a performance takes place, despite weather conditions, the Center for the Arts will not issue refunds to patrons who did not attend. When in doubt, call the Box Office to confirm a performance. In the event that a performance is cancelled, the Center will issue refunds on purchased tickets, and do our best to reach out to you in advance of the show.

Services for people with Disabilities

DCIM100GOPROPlease help us by specifying seating needs when ordering your tickets and the Center for the Arts will  accommodate you. There is a limited number of ADA accessible spaces on the orchestra level of the Theater. Please call the Center Box Office for hearing or visually impaired requests, or with any questions. We’re happy to help!

Food and Beverage

The Center for the Arts provides light concessions and a beer/wine bar at each performance. Outside food and beverages are not allowed. Yes, you may bring concession items into the theater – just be careful, please. We don’t cry over spilt milk, but there’s trash cans at the doorways. Volunteers pick up after every show. It’s a big job. Help our volunteers out.

No Recording Policy

Each artist and agency has different contract restrictions regarding the use of recording devices. This includes, but is not limited to, cell phones with cameras, video cameras, and audio recording devices. If you are interested in photography, video, or audio recording of our performances, please contact the Box Office in advance.

Theater Etiquette

Electronic devices (cell phones, pagers, watch alarms, etc.) should be turned off  before the start of each performance. Our acoustics are impeccable. Everyone will know it’s you. Don’t be that person.

Please be respectful of your fellow audience members. We strive to make our events and concerts a pleasurable experience for everyone. Help us to maintain a comfortable atmosphere by employing appropriate concert and performance etiquette.

Let the magic at the Center for the Arts sweep you away. Step Inside!
