Some patrons do enjoy dressing up, while others come in business attire, school attire, or whatever is comfortable. 

A few recommendations:

  • We do recommend bringing a light jacket because the theater can be chilly to some patrons. 
  • We do not offer a coat check for our events.

Attendance of Children and Babies

star star star star star

Every person that comes into the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center must have a ticket for entry. In case of emergency, the building uses the “ticket count” to ensure that all patrons have been safely escorted from the building. Furthermore, to ensure the comfort of our patrons we ask that all children and babies have their own seat for the duration of the performance. 

The Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center does not issue information regarding suitability for children. We leave that decision up to the parent of the child attending the performance. Presenting organizations have the desecration to issue suitability warnings for individual events. We encourage all parents to investigate, independently, to determine suitability for their child.  Most live events held at the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center can be easily found by searching online for videos and audio clips.

Patrons with Service Animals

star star star star star

If you or someone in your party plans to attend an event with a service animal, please notify box office personnel when purchasing your tickets so that we may make every effort to arrange for an aisle seat or other seat that can accommodate you and your service animal. Service animals are generally dogs that are individually trained to perform tasks for people with disabilities, including physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual or mental disabilities. Services animals may perform tasks such as guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling wheelchairs, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, or helping persons with psychiatric and neurological disabilities by preventing or interrupting impulsive or destructive behaviors.
