PROCEDURES, TICKETING & SEATING POLICIES
CLICK TO VIEW OUR UPDATED PLANS & PROCEDURES
Updated: Sept. 13, 2021
While we continue to navigate through these uncertain times, we always strive to make the best decisions we can given our ever-changing challenging circumstances. For a complete run down of our UPDATED PLANS & PROCEDURES CLICK HERE. Due to the recent variant uptick, face coverings are now required for all audience members of all shows. Everyone attending an event at Rhino Theatre must have a ticket regardless of age. Children under the age of two are not recommended and parents should ensure young children observe proper theatre etiquette. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable. Child tickets to all productions are for those 17 and younger. Senior tickets to all productions are for those 65 and older. Our ticket provider charges a processing fee. To avoid this fee, you may call the theatre directly to purchase tickets. In-Person ticket purchases are discouraged, but if such arrangements must be made we are asking all patrons to use credit or debit cards for all purchases or exact change whenever possible. Refreshments may be available, but for the time being may be limited, and will require exact change whenever possible. If you want to change a date or time, there is a $3.00 ticket change fee, while no refunds are given, a credit may be extended due to the circumstance. Group Rates will begin to be phased back in this Fall/Winter. Choose Your Own Seats is currently unavailable, but we anticipate having this option available again within the next few months. Seating arrangements are at the discretion of Rhino Theatre staff or prearranged special seating, at least one seat apart. Indoor occupancy is currently reduced for all indoor performances; but we will begin to increase our capacity slowly over the coming months to accommodate more patrons. ALL THOSE PURCHASING A TICKET TO A RHINO THEATRE EVENT ARE - THROUGH THEIR PURCHASE - AGREEING TO ABIDE BY OUR
PLANS AND PROCEDURES.
UPDATES TO POLICY CHANGES AS DETERMINED VIA MANDATES AND GUIDELINES, WILL BE POSTED HERE.
