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.
There are three locations for restrooms at the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center.
On the Orchestra Level:
On the Mezzanine (Balcony):
There is currently no elevator to the Balcony of the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center. There are two sets of stairs to gain access to those seats. Seats are available on the Orchestra Level for those with disabilities or injuries.
In front of the main lobby doors of the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center is a passenger drop-off/pick-up zone. All patrons are welcome to utilize this space. The area is very limited so there is not permanent street parking in this area. There is a wheelchair friendly sidewalk entrance and there is space and chairs available inside the lobby for patrons waiting on party members for entry into the theater.
There are different locations for parking around the venue but there is no direct parking for the venue.
There is only one main entrance to the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center and that is located on 4th Avenue. All emergency exits on the orchestra level are accessible by all patrons and are accessible. Patrons will be directed to those exits in case of emergency.
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.
