How to “Theater”
A trip to the theater is always a special occasion. Here are some helpful tips to help you make the most of your event.
What to Wear?
Dress for the occasion! Some people like to dress up and make a night of it while others come in jeans. Casual business attire is always a great option.
Cell Phones – Please silence cell phones, pagers, alarms, and other electronic devices as soon as you enter the performance area. There is nothing worse than a cell phone going off in the middle of a performance, and it’s even worse if it’s your own phone.
Singing & Talking – during musicals, plays, symphony, opera, and dance performances, please do not sing along and keep conversation to a minimum or whisper if you need to talk to your neighbor. At concerts and comedy shows, these same guidelines may not apply; if you don’t know, just ask an usher.
Food & Drinks
Water is allowed in all of our theaters and is available for purchase at our concession stands. The Eccles Theater is the only one of our venues that allows food inside the auditorium; only food purchased at our concessions stands is allowed in the seating area. Please be considerate when unwrapping and enjoying your snacks.
Unless otherwise noted, photos and selfies are encouraged in any of our venues before the show, at intermission, and at the end of the show. Once the show starts, photos are not allowed.
Of course, it’s always best to be early to your performance, but sometimes things happen. If you are late, you’ll have to wait until the ushers are able to seat you. Each show determines its own late seating policy and our ushers follow the show’s instructions. Be sure to use our traffic and parking guides to help plan your trip to the theater.
Kids and the Theater
Most of our performances are appropriate for children age 8 and up. Before buying tickets, please call us or check out the show’s synopsis on our website to ensure the content is appropriate for children and if there are any age restrictions or recommendations. For ticketed performances, each guest needs a ticket and there are no babes-in-arms. Children should never be left unattended at any of our venues.
*September 2021: Seat cushions are temporarily suspended.
We have seat cushions available on a first-come-first-served basis at most of our theaters. The cushions are primarily for children and petite adults. Cushions are distributed at the theater’s coat check stand.
Sound, Lighting, and Stage Effects
Performances may have sound, light, and stage effects that could be startling or in some cases dangerous to some patrons. These effects are typically announced at the performance but may not always be in the description when you buy your tickets. If you or anyone attending the show with you is sensitive to certain effects or sounds please call ArtTix for further details.
Safety & Security
We take the safety and security of all of our guests seriously. In the case of an emergency, we will stop the show and announce instructions from the stage. Our ushers are trained to evacuate the theaters quickly, please follow their directions.
Eccles Theater Large Bag Policy
For the safety and security of our patrons and performers, the Eccles Theater does not allow bags or backpacks larger than 12 inches by 12 inches by 6 inches into Delta Performance Hall or the Regent Street Black Box. Eccles Theater does not have check-in areas or lockers for bags that are over the size limit, so please plan ahead. There are exceptions for medical equipment or diaper bags.
We are pleased to have Western Food Services as our concessionaire in Abravanel Hall, Capitol Theatre, Eccles Theater, and the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center. Concessions are available before the show and at intermission. Western Foods offers Coca-Cola products, gourmet candies and baked treats, and craft and domestic beers (with the exception of Abravanel Hall). They accept cash, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover Card.
