What if I’m late for the show? Can I still be seated?
Our House Manager will do her best to seat you if you arrive after the show has begun. Depending how far the show has progressed and other factors, like actors in the aisles and where your seat is located, you may be asked to take a seat in the back of the house until intermission. We recommend all patrons plan to arrive at NWCT a half-hour before show time. Click here for help planning your visit to NWCT.
