All guests require a ticket, regardless of age. Children under the age of 6 are not allowed at most DPAC performances including Broadway, Concerts and Comedy shows. Children must be able to sit quietly in their own seat without disturbing other guests. Some shows make further age appropriate recommendations, and DPAC will provide those on its website; however, parental discretion is always advised, and judgment of the content for each show should be made on an individual basis prior to purchase. This policy does not include special kids shows such as Disney Live, Wild Kratts and Peppa Pig.


Come early and enjoy drinks, appetizers, and gourmet snacks in the BlueCross Blue Shield Atrium, our dramatic three story glass walled lobby. For most shows our lobby bars will feature soft drinks, mixed drinks, wine by the glass, and a full selection of domestic, specialty and import beer.

Pre-show Dining:
