As a courtesy to our audience and performers, latecomers will be seated only by an usher at an interval established by each performing group. Please be aware of curtain times as they may vary from day to day. Typically, DAST evening performances begin promptly at 7:30 pm and matinees at 2 pm.
CAMERAS, RECORDING DEVICES, CELL PHONES
The use of cameras and recording devices is prohibited inside the theater. In a dark theatre, the bright light from a cell phone can be very distracting to the audience and performers. Please refrain from using your cell phones during the performance and turn them off to prevent disturbances. If needed, DAST ushers reserve the right to expel anyone who violates this policy after one warning.
Theater seating is available for patrons using wheelchairs on both the upper and lower levels. Please order wheelchair seating in advance. See the House Manager with any questions.
Some full length musicals may not be appropriate for or hold the attention of young children. The house management staff may request a restless child and parent to quietly exit to the lobby during the performance. Children are not permitted to run around the theater at anytime before, during, or after a performance. Children are not permitted to roam the aisles during a performance. If your baby or child(ren) cannot sit through a Delaware All-State Theatre production quietly and attentively, then we respectfully request that you not bring them to our shows. We recommend:
Delaware Children's Theatre (www.DEChildrensTheatre.org)
Wilmington Drama League (www.wilmingtondramaleague.org)
The Children's Theatre, Inc. (www.thechildrenstheatre.org)
Each of these organizations cater to theater for younger audiences.
Emergency exits are indicated by red-light signs. In the event of fire or other emergency, proceed calmly to the exit nearest you. Doors with “exit only” signs will lead you out of, and not back into, the building.
