The Train Driver
The Train Driver

The Screwtape Letters
The Screwtape Letters
By C.S. Lewis
May 27 - Jun 15
Anthony Lawton's rollicking adaptation turns C.S. Lewis' revered classic into a sumptuous multimedia event with music, dance, and infernal unpredictability.

For Your Information

  • Seating: All seating is reserved. Seats are assigned on a best available basis by date received; all special requests are subject to availability. The house opens 30 minutes before showtime.
  • Late Seating: Latecomers will be seated at appropriate intervals at the discretion of house management. To avoid disruption to the actors and your fellow audience members, patrons arriving after a performance has begun will be seated in the balcony. Balcony seating is EXTREMELY limited, so we hope you will make every effort to arrive on time. For your safety and the safety of those around you, please comply with all instructions provided by house management. Under no circumstances will refunds be granted for latecomers.
  • Accessibility: We regret that our resident home, St. Stephen's Theater, requires climbing a flight of stairs and is therefore not accessible to patrons using a wheelchair. No elevator service is available. We are, however, able to accommodate patrons with early seating or other special needs – including our open captioning service available at select performances. When ordering tickets, please let us know how we can assist you.
  • Seating Charts: Our flexible theater is transformed to best suit the specific needs of each production, ensuring that every seat provides the best possible view of the action. Due to this flexible seating arrangement, we regret that we are unable to post seating charts at this time.
  • Parking: Lantern single ticket buyers are entitled to a discount at the nearby LAZ Parking garage during specified hours.  details
