Theatre etiquette

We recognise attending a live theatre performance may be a new and exciting experience for many students. Audience behavior affects both the performers and other patrons and different behavior standards apply than when going to the movies or a concert. We suggest the following tips to ensure students gain maximum benefit from their visit to the theatre:

Gardens Theatre reserves the right to expel any patrons if staff feel they fail to behave in a reasonable manner.
