For Your Information
- Seating: All seating is General Admission, so you will select your favorite available seat when you arrive for the performance. The house opens 30 minutes before showtime. General Admission seating begins immediately after Priority Seating for Lantern subscribers.
- Late Seating: Due to the intimacy of the Lantern's Mainstage theater, we are unable to seat patrons in the orchestra once a performance has begun. If you arrive late or need to use the restroom during the show, our House Manager will escort you to the first available seat in the balcony to avoid disturbing the performance. Balcony seating is extremely limited and subject to availability, so please arrive on time to be seated. Refunds will not 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 new 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 patrons are entitled to discounts at select nearly parking locations during specified hours. details
