Both sounds and light emitted from a device during a performance are distracting for both the performers and audience members. Patrons disturbing others with electronic devices may be asked to leave the theatre.

Perfumes, colognes and other heavily scented cosmetics can cause severe reactions in other patrons. In order to ensure everyone enjoys their theatre experience we ask patrons to be respectful of this possibility and refrain from wearing heavy scents.

Responding to the performance
Theatre is a communication between audience and actor. Actors love to hear the audiences respond authentically. Laughing, crying, applauding and even cheering is all part of the experience. For those new to theatre, audiences applaud at the end of the act before the interval and also at the end of the show, when actors take their bows.
Please observe all No Smoking notices. Presentation House Theatre is a smoke-free venue.
Talking during a performance
The acoustics of our theatre are such that talking or whispering during a performance is likely to be heard on stage. Please refrain from talking during the performance.
