Other Services:

The Audience Services Manager and staff will assist the audience should they have any difficulties while attending the performance. An Audience Services Supervisor is required for all events. This person is on site one and one half hours prior to the event, and is the last person to leave the theatre after the audience has left.

To ensure the health and safety of the audience, the Centre requires ushering staff for all events. This staff is supplied by the Centre at an additional cost. However, with prior arrangements, you may be permitted to supply some of your own volunteer ushers. Upon booking the facility, the Audience Services Manager will contact you to determine the number of ushers necessary. The Centre reserves the right to determine the number and types of personnel required for the proper staffing of any event.

Special Services:

All of the facilities at the Centre are fully accessible to the physically challenged. Special seating locations are available for wheelchairs and Phonic Ear services are available for the hearing impaired. Elevator, ramps, and accessible washrooms complete our facilities. With prior arrangement, we can provide an escort from buses or parking lots for those requiring assistance. Please contact the Audience Services Manager should you require any special services or if you have special needs.

The Centre also provides concession and bar facilities. Please inform the Audience Services Manager if this service will be required during your event.
