Patrons with Special Needs
Limited wheelchair seating is available. Please check the appropriate box on the order form or mention when ordering by phone. If  you do not require wheelchair seating, but do prefer seating that does not require the use of stairs, please contact the box office at (708) 974-5500 to discuss  seating options.

Infrared Assisted-Listening Systems
Wireless headsets are available at no charge from the Box Office. Patrons must leave a driver’s license or major credit card to use headset.

Free parking is available at the center.

Cameras, Recording Equipment and Electronics
While the Fine and Performing Arts Center does not have a policy prohibiting cameras, many artists do, and we enforce this on behalf of the artists. When in doubt, call the Box Office prior to performances. The use of video or sound recording devices is always prohibited. Please turn off your cell phones, pagers and watch alarms before a performance.

We believe children should be exposed to the cultural arts, but some of our events are not suitable for young children.

Drinks and Food
Food is not allowed in the auditorium. Beverages are permitted with a lid or cap. Beer and wine are available for purchase at selected performances only.

Discounted prices for most shows are available for groups of 20+.


All programs, dates, times, prices, and artists are subject to change without notice. All performances begin promptly at the published times. Latecomers will
be seated at the management’s discretion.

All sales are final. No refunds will be issued. Exchanges are only available to subscribers with a minimum notice of 24 hours prior to the performance. No same-day exchanges will be permitted. Original tickets must be presented before an exchange can be processed.

The Box Office accepts cash, check, money order, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover. The Box Office does not accept reservations without full payment. Tickets sent by mail will be charged a $1 processing fee.

The Fine and Performing Arts Center does not offer advisories about subject matter, as sensitivities vary from person to person. If you have any questions about content, age-appropriateness or stage effects (such as strobe lights or theatrical fog) that might have a bearing on patron comfort, please contact the Box Office at (708) 974-5500.

This blanket permission releases and waives any claim against the college and its employees arising from the use of such images in any medium.
