City Opera House Policies:

Children Policy: Infants and newborns are not permitted. Everyone attending must have a ticket and be able to sit in a seat. Children under 5 years of age are not permitted unless otherwise advertised. Parents will be asked to remove their child/children if they are causing disruptions or are unable to sit quietly.

Cameras & Recording Devices: Cameras and other recording devices (audio, video and still) are not permitted in the auditorium and may be confiscated if used during a performance. If brought into the facility, cameras may be checked in at the Hayden Box Office in the main entrance. Photos taken by camera phones may be deleted by City Opera House ushers or staff. Patrons repeatedly taking photos or recording may have the recordings deleted and be asked to leave.

Cell Phone and Personal Electronic Device Policy: The use of cell phones, laptops, and other electronic devices is strictly prohibited. Cellular phones and other devices can cause distractions to performers and other patrons and will be confiscated.  Please turn all devices off!

For the consideration of our patrons and performers, anyone arriving while a performance is in progress will be seated only at times designated by the artist and their management. Late arriving patrons may be directed to seats in the rear of the auditorium until intermission.
