Please review our updated ticket policies below to see how this affects your purchase!

Recital Tickets Policies

**Your tickets will be delivered digitally to the email address you provide during the purchase. For each order, a single unique QR code will be issued (for instance, if you order four tickets for the Saturday 11AM performance, you'll receive one QR code covering all four tickets). When you arrive at the theater, you'll need to present this QR code to our staff. They will then provide wristbands for your group. It's important that everyone in your party puts on these wristbands before entering the theater. These wristbands serve as admission indicators and must be worn throughout your time at the event.

If you're purchasing tickets for groups arriving at different times, we suggest making separate orders. For example, if Uncle Bob and his wife are coming from Sacramento and won't arrive until just before the show starts, it's a good idea to order their tickets separately and send Uncle Bob his own QR code. This approach still ensures you can enter the theater as soon as the doors open to grab your seats.

Audience Etiquette and Seating Procedures

Your presence in the audience enhances the experience for everyone. Please share these friendly tips with your guests to ensure an enjoyable and respectful recital.

  1. Please focus on the performers throughout the recital. Each dancer's effort deserves equal appreciation, so let's make their moments equally special.

  2. If you need to leave after your child's dance, kindly exit during a blackout between performances. Respect others' views by avoiding obstructing their sight, even for a moment.

  3. Ushers will guide latecomers to their seats between routines. If you're arriving late, please seek their assistance for a smooth entry.

  4. NO FOOD OR DRINKS INSIDE THE THEATER. Respect the venue policy and refrain from bringing food or drinks into the theater.
