What to Expect
If you have never been to Proctors before, we hope you find this information useful. And should you have any questions during your visit please don't hesitate to ask one of our volunteers or staff.
There is no dress code at Proctors. If you buy tickets in the Dress Circle that does not mean you have to dress in any particular way. What you wear is up to you.
FOOD and BEVERAGES
We have two concession stands and up to eight bars, however these are not all open for all performances. Apostrophe is Proctors Cafe & Lounge, open 8am - 8pm daily, located in Robb Alley near the Box Office. There are also numerous restaurants and bars in the area. Check out our restaurant page for more information. No outside food or beverages are permitted in the theatre.
CELL PHONES and PHOTOGRAPHS
Sitting near someone who is texting or making a phone call is extremely distracting. From certain seats it can even distract the performers. For this reason, please be courteous and not call or text in the theatre. Needless to say, taking photographs and videos is prohibited.
We do have a coat check. It is located in Proctors Arcade directly across from the mainstage entrance doors.
The Will Call is located at the Box Office. At showtime it is a separate line. Look up, and you will see the signs above our friendly box office staff.
Barcodes are tickets. If you have successfully printed out your barcodes, there is no need to go to the Box Office. Take your barcode tickets right to the door.
HOW TO FIND YOUR SEAT
Your tickets have the seat location printed on them but our volunteer ushers will help you find your seat.
We do have booster seats located at the concession stand but they are very limited. If borrowing one of our seats, you will be asked to leave ID with us. You are always welcome to bring your own booster seat.
PERFORMANCE START TIMES
Performances start promptly. To be certain of being seated in good time, we recommend you arrive 30 minutes before curtain for live performances at the Mainstage. Latecomers are generally not allowed to their seats until a suitable gap in the performance can be found.
WHEN TO ARRIVE
The theatre doors open approximately 30 minutes before curtain. There will be an announcement asking you to take your seat 5 minutes before curtain (live shows at the Mainstage).
PERFORMANCE RUNNING TIMES
Most performance running times are found on the individual show pages or by calling the Box Office. Sometimes due to the nature of a show we do not receive accurate running times in advance.
