Can I bring my camera? 

Yes. You may use your camera up until the start of the show. Photography and videography are strictly prohibited during the performance.

Will I be seated if I arrive late for the show? 

While we understand and would love to seat you immediately if you arrive late, we’re not always able to do so. To ensure the safety of all our guests, actors, and animal actors (who use the aisles in darkened show conditions), we cannot guarantee that we will be able to seat you immediately. The theater doors will close promptly at showtime. If you arrive after the start of the show, the House Manager will determine when and where you will be seated. Please know that we may not be able to seat you until intermission. To get the most out of your Sight & Sound Theatres experience, please plan to arrive 45 minutes before your scheduled showtime.

Is the theater handicapped accessible? 

Yes. Our guests have options for wheelchair-accessible parking, restroom facilities, and theater seating. Not all seating is wheelchair-accessible, so it is important for you to request special accommodations when ordering your tickets.

Are the performances interpreted for the deaf or those hard of hearing? 

Yes, we offer American Sign Language interpretation at select dates and times. Please note your request for interpretation when ordering your tickets.

Is the show appropriate for children? 

Yes. However, due to the length of the performance, it is recommended that children ages 5 and up enjoy the show. Should your child become restless or need a break, the theater offers a Family Room at both the Lancaster and Branson theaters, where you can watch a live video feed of the show on a TV.
