SHOW SECURITY

Family members and friends are not permitted backstage or in the dressing rooms during the recital, including during intermission and before and after the show. There is a lot of backstage activity in a limited space, and dressing rooms are private areas. Please remind your family and guests to be respectful of these areas. Those who wish to greet performers after the show or present flowers may do so in the lobby areas.


We will be implementing backstage security measures, which will be strictly enforced. More details will follow. Please be assured that we take your children's safety as our top priority.  We will be looking for volunteers to sign up for security positions to work w/ our Backstage Coordinator.
