For seating information, visit:

Limited View seats generally have a partial view of the stage due to the viewing angle in the theatre. Obstructed View seats have a partially blocked view of the stage due to objects such as columns, railings, or sound equipment.

We recommend that you arrive at the venue at a minimum of 30 minutes hour before the performance to allow plenty of time to park and get seated. Doors will open between 1 hour prior to start of the show and may vary on show-by-show basis.

Please arrive on time out of courtesy for the performers and your fellow audience members. Arriving late may result in seating holds in the lobby or alternate seating within the theater. Admission or re-admission of latecomers is ultimately subject to the producers’ discretion and guidelines for each individual show.

Yes. Bar service is open in several locations in the lobbies of the theatre before each performance and during intermission. Bar service generally opens one hour prior to a performance. The National Arts Centre offers a selection of both alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages. A selection of light snacks is offered at the bar.
