Seating

DCIM100GOPROAll seating at Center for the Arts concerts and performances is by General Admission.

The house opens one hour prior to showtime. This means, if your show says it starts at 8:00pm, then the theater doors open at 7:00pm. We’re usually pretty sharp about this policy, in the sake of fairness.

We encourage our guests to hang out beforehand, or take a stroll down Main Street. Explore. We have an art gallery too (it’s right behind the theater).

Guests are encouraged to write their names on 3M Post-It Notes to reserve seats 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 at a concert or show with a Post-It-Note before.

Now that you understand our system…Honesty is the best policy.

Ticketing

SeatingThe Center does not offer refunds or exchanges. All sales are final.
Please confirm your order carefully at time of purchase. We are empathetic to your life events that sometimes results in being unable to attend a show after you’ve purchased tickets. We also offer cancellation insurance as part of the online checkout process.

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

Unless tickets are purchased in person at the Box Office or Printed At Home, tickets will be held under the purchaser’s name for pick up at the Box Office.

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 can feel a little special. Try it.

We also send a personalized email for each show you are attending. This email lays out everything from parking to concessions, and beyond. It’s part of the little extras we like to give to our patrons to ensure a memorable experience. 

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 your tickets at home?

Testimonial:

“I printed my tickets at home using the Center for the Arts online ticketing system by Showare, and was able to skip the long lines at the box office on show night! Thanks to the print at home option, we had awesome seats!”
– Barbara Babwick-Sinclair-Jones, frequent event attendee

(we made that up – carrying on…)

Parking

Center for the ArtsWe have limited parking directly at the Center on show nights.
You should not expect to park here.
Why? Because we have a really dedicated team of  volunteers who help us run each show. Plus the artists have to park here. And there’s usually a dance class letting out. There is a lot going on around here, and we’re not sorry for it.

Also, we’re located in the middle of an historic neighborhood.

Do NOT park in the American Legion parking lot, please (located directly across Main 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. We also offer free and discounted tickets to Veterans and Active Military Members.

You may park on the street, but please pay attention to Village signs.


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.

We do offer accessibility options. Please call the box office in advance. We always do our best to accommodate.

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 reach out to you in advance of the show, and as soon as possible.

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, it is a historic building. There trash cans at the doorways. Volunteers pick up after every show. It’s a big job. Help our volunteers out. Or become a volunteer. We love new friends who get to see shows for free.

We recycle, and when you’re here, we’d appreciate if you did too.

No Recording Policy

10-17-2014-FR-cfARms-IMG_7678_crEach 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. Most of our visiting artists are pretty chill.

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. Trust us. But, it’s your call.

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.

But seriously, you’re never going to watch that crappy cell phone video again. So why bother?

See you at the show!
