Theatre Policies

In an ongoing effort to ensure the safety, security and convenience of Annenberg Center patrons and performers, we ask that you please take a moment to review our policies.

Late Seating

Late seating is at the discretion of House Management and may not be possible for some performances. If you arrive late, ushers will seat you at the earliest appropriate time during the performance. Out of respect for the performers on stage and the other audience members, you will be asked to wait in the lobby with the usher until the appropriate seating break. In some cases, this will not be until intermission, so please plan accordingly! If you need to leave the performance early, we ask that you leave at a point in the performance when moving around would be of minimal disturbance to those around you. When you return, you will be asked to wait with the usher until the next seating break.

Cell Phone and Camera Usage

All electronic devices must be turned off or silenced during performances. Taking pictures and video recording is prohibited.


All persons entering the theatre, including babes in arms, must have a ticket. Please carefully consider whether a performance is appropriate for your child before planning to attend. Disruptive patrons, including children, may be asked to leave the theatre.

Food and Beverages

Food and beverages are not permitted in any of the Annenberg Center theatres.

Lost & Found

The Annenberg Center's patron services department oversees and manages any items left behind. Found items will be kept secure in our House Manager's office for two weeks. Personal items found such as wallets, ID cards, credit cards and keys will immediately be turned in to the Office of Public Safety at 4040 Chestnut Street (215.898.7297). If you have lost an item at the Annenberg Center, call the Box Office at 215.898.3900 or email us at
