Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
Open Rehearsal ushers will not be checking ID, but reservation in advance is required.  Group or individual not appearing on the reservation list on rehearsal day will not be admitted to the auditorium. Only adults who are accompanying students will be admitted to Open Rehearsals, such as in the case of teachers, parents and chaperones.  Attendance of children below middle school age is discouraged. Every attendee, regardless of age, must be included in your ticket count. 

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?  
If arriving by bus, busses should turn onto Auditorium Circle from 4TH Street and unload directly in front of the main doors on the Performing Arts Plaza.  Busses will need to park elsewhere downtown as there is no bus parking at the Center.  A City Tour or School Bus Parking Map is available for download here:
If arriving by car, it will be necessary to park in a metered space or pay-to-park lot or garage.  The Enter Lot on the corner of St. Mary’s and Lexington is the closest lot for paid parking.  Additional parking information can be found at
