Parking
STREET CONSTRUCTION ALERT:

Broadway (Route 25) will be under construction for a water main repair between Benton Avenue North to New York Street. This construction will cover about 4 blocks, but its impact on traffic will extend much further. Expect traffic delays in all directions, including on cross streets like Galena Boulevard. To ease congestion, the City of Aurora recommends avoiding Broadway (Route 25) through Downtown Aurora. Instead, consider using alternative routes. One great option is Lincoln Avenue, just a block or two east of Broadway, running North & South on the East side of the train tracks.

We ask that you refrain from wearing hats during the performance, as to not obstruct the views of other patrons.

You are required to sit in the seat you purchased and that’s noted on your ticket. If you’re seated in another patron’s seat, it may delay or disrupt the start of the show.

Photo/Video/Audio Policy

Photos and videos of the set pieces on stage, as well as any photos or video/audio recordings of the actual production, are prohibited due to our contractual agreements with the theatrical unions. This measure is put into place to protect the intellectual property of the talented artists who created the various elements of our productions. As the producing theater, we are obligated to enforce this “No Photo/Video/Audio” policy, which requires our staff to delete any images or recordings captured of the set or production. We appreciate your cooperation.
