Theater Etiquette

Performing Spaces

Please make sure to check the location of the performance space before attending. Performances are generally held in the Flint Hall at the Falany Performing Arts Center, the University Theatre, and outside in various locations.

Arrive Early

Please arrive between 15-20 minutes prior to the start time of the event. This will allow all guests to comfortably find their seats prior to the start of the show.

If You Are Late

Please remain in the lobby until an usher helps to escort you to your seats. For sold out shows, guests might be seated in the back until time allows for them to move forward.

If You Cannot Attend An Event

Please notify the box office. This will allow for an accurate count of guests. During sold-out shows, the School of Performing Arts students will be allowed to fill your seat.


Due to the nature of our concert venue, the Concert Hall stays at a temperature between 68°-72°. Guests who are cold-natured are encouraged to bring a sweater with them. While we do not have a strict dress code, we ask concert attendees to please be respectful of those around them. Guests are asked to remove hats while in the building.


The Falany hosts a concessions stand during most performances. Guests are allowed to take beverages and food into the performance spaces.


Children are our future! We welcome children to all events at the Falany Performing Arts Center. Should your child become restless, you are encouraged to exit the Concert Hall and listen to the event in the Atrium, where you’ll find comfortable seating until your child is ready to re-enter the Concert Hall.

Photography or Recording

Please, no photography or recording of events unless prior permission is given by the artists.


Please remain respectful and courteous to all other guests. Please do not wear an overabundance of cologne/perfume. Do not lean heads together as it might block the views of others. Please remove hats.
