Any guest with a disability who requires a PCA and will buy or has bought tickets should call the Box Office at 410.332.0033. PCA passes will be held at the Box Office for pick up the day of your performance. The PCA Pass will enable the PCA to enter the theater and sit with the guest during the performance or event. 

SENSORY-FRIENDLY PERFORMANCES

Sensory-friendly performances are designed to create a performing arts experience that is welcoming to individuals with autism or with other disabilities that create sensory sensitivities. On May 20, 2017, we will offer a sensory-friendly performance of Maria Broom's When the Children Dance.  Purchase tickets.
