Theater Etiquette

The audience plays a key part in the overall theater experience. Each audience member affects those around him or her as well as the performers. Remind your class that everyone will have an especially wonderful time at the performance by remembering their theater manners.

Here is how students can help:

  • It is important to remain seated throughout the performance.
  • Restroom visits are best made prior to seating.
  • Photography and recording during the performance are not permitted.
  • Give your full attention and energy to the performers. In return, the performers give it back to you with a better performance.
  • Don’t talk during the show unless you are asked.  Sometimes we think that if we whisper, it is okay.  But if everyone in the audience whispers, it can be disruptive to the performers.
  • Turn watches, pagers and cell phones to silent.
  • Do not interrupt performers with comments that may disrupt the performance for others.
  • Show the performers your appreciation for their efforts by applauding.

Your cooperation will ensure a well-focused environment for everyone to enjoy, cherish & remember.

Thank you.
