Theater Etiquette

Theater Etiquette

We would like to remind you about theater etiquette to make everyone’s experience at the Waterfront Playhouse more enjoyable.

Please arrive on time. Call the box office or check the website, ads, posters, etc. for exact showtimes. If you arrive after the start of the show, please wait for an usher or House Manager to seat you during a pause in the action.

As a courtesy to performers and patrons, all pagers, phones, cameras and other recording and noise making devices should be turned off. Also, please no text messaging. Extra sounds and lights are distracting. This regulation is strictly enforced.

Be considerate of the people around you: Talking during a show (even in a whisper), fidgeting, rustling papers or candy wrappers all disturb your neighbors, as well as the actors’ concentration and disrupt the performance. On the other hand, audience responses can inspire the actors to do their best work. This interplay is the essence of live theater.

Also, audience members should be aware that heavy perfumes and colognes may also disturb others.

No outside food is allowed in the theater.

Thank you for your cooperation.
