General Rules

Items not allowed - cameras & electronic recording devices

While the Ferguson Center does not have a policy prohibiting cameras, many artists do. When an artist requests a "no camera" policy, our staff is legally required to enforce this on behalf of the artist. When in doubt, call the Ferguson Center Ticket Office at 757.594.8752 prior to the performance or ask the House Manager on the evening of the event. The use of video or sound
recording devices is prohibited.

Smoking Policy - Ferguson Center for the Arts is
a non-smoking facility. Smoking is permitted in
designated outdoor areas.

Children Rules

With the exception of Family Series events, all
persons regardless of age must have a ticket for
admittance into the theatre. Please carefully consider whether a performance is appropriate for
children before planning to attend. Should a child be unable to sit quietly in his/her seat throughout a perfromance, our ushers will request that the child be removed from the theatre.

For Family Series events, children age one year and younger may be admitted to the theatre without a ticket, provided that they sit on an adult's lap and do not occupy a seat.
