SEATING FOR THIS EVENT
About Seating For This Event
Seating will be in socially distanced circles, six feet apart, to accommodate parties of up to two, four, or six. There will be lawn seating (please bring your own blankets), but there will primarily be circles designated for people who bring chairs. Guests are responsible for bringing their own chairs and blankets (although there will be a limited number of chairs available to rent if needed), and it is highly recommended you bring chairs for chair-allowed seating. All chair-allowed circles can also accommodate wheelchairs (we highly recommend they be able to lock). Click here to rent a chair from us.
In the event that you need to exchange or cancel your reservation, please see our policies about exchanging/refunding.
There is ample free street parking near the park (street parking is allowed until 2 am), a small free parking lot on the North side of (behind) the Playhouse (this lot closes at midnight, please be sure to move your vehicle if you plan on staying in the area after that time), and a larger parking lot South of the Playhouse (this lot also closes at midnight). Please be sure to follow all street signage regarding parking, and keep in mind that U-turns are illegal (and a ticketable offense) on Sierra Madre Blvd. The parking spaces in front of the park on Sierra Madre Blvd will be used for curbside drop-off and pickup.
Getting to Your Circle
There are four seating sections, each named to reflect their respective entrance gates. We hope this will allow everyone to get to their assigned circles as quickly and safely as possible. Your circle’s section will indicate which entrance-only gate you will be checking in at and entering through. You will need to give the name the reservation is under to get in and everyone will receive a bracelet (which will allow for re-entry if you need to exit the venue). Everyone in your party should be present before entering, although exceptions will be made for patrons who need assistance getting seated. Each circle has their own individual, unique number -- please ensure you only enter and sit in your assigned circle. Exchanging or switching seating circles while in the seating area on the day of your show, even if they are of the same type, is not permitted.
Q: Where is the show venue located, since it is not taking place at the Playhouse?
Q: What can I NOT bring to the show and what is NOT allowed during the show?
A: Animals and pets are not allowed at the show (with the exception of certified service dogs). No photography, video or audio recording of any kind during the show is permitted. At the venue, please make sure to not touch any equipment or set pieces that are a part of the show, or go onto the stage. According to city ordinance, alcohol is not permitted in the park.
Q: Will there be a concession stand?
A: At the moment, we do not have concessions available for this event. We encourage all patrons to support the nearby Sierra Madre businesses -- including our sponsors Taylor's Ol' Fashioned Meat Markets and Poppy Cake Baking Company. Plus, Mother Moo Creamery down the street will be selling Peanuts-themed ice cream!
