  • Is there a dress code for presentations?

  • What happens if I'm late for a performance?

    Late arrivals must wait in the lobby until they can be seated at a time that has been pre-arranged with the performers. This usually takes from 5 to 30 minutes depending on the performance. For this reason, visitors are encouraged to arrive before the show begins.
