Seeing our Events:
1. Does CEPA have a dress code? What is the typical attire?
While CEPA does not have an official dress code, most patrons opt to wear business casual attire. CEPA does, however, adhere to a strict no shirt, no shoes, no show policy. Note that all of our facilities are air conditioned/heated for your comfort — please dress appropriately.
2. What if I lose something in the theatre, where is the lost and found?
Personal items found in the theatre are kept in the office next door to CEPA.
3. Can I use my phone/tablet/laptop during a performance?
Yes – The best thing to do in order to avoid distracting others is to make sure your device is silenced before entering the theatre. We absolutely hope that you text/tweet/facebook everyone you know after the performance to let them know what a great time you had here!
4. What if I’m late?
If you already have your tickets, please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the show. If your tickets are being held at the Box Office or you need to purchase tickets, we recommend arriving at least 30 minutes prior to the show. After the performance has begun, it may not be possible to seat you until a break. If there is an appropriate pause in the production, we will do our best to seat you toward the back of the theater in order to avoid disrupting the performance. However, please note that some productions simply will not accommodate late seating.
