FIRST TIMER'S GUIDE
A hearty round of applause for making your debut at our theatre! Here are some helpful tips we’ve compiled to prepare you for your first visit.
Welcome to our Ensemble!
We’re so happy you’ll be coming to see us for the first time and we want to make your experience as enjoyable and easy as possible. So, we’ve put together an “Ensemble Theatre 101” crash course for our theatre newbies with useful information about booking tickets, finding parking, and what to do when you’ve arrived at your seat.
If you have other questions, please call our Box Office at (513) 421-3555 or email us at email@example.com.
Here’s what you need to know before you make your way to the theatre.
Dress code? Nope, we don’t have one. Some patrons like to dress up for their night on the town, others prefer to keep it casual. When you attend an Ensemble show, the only thing that matters to us is that you’re comfortable.
If you have tickets, you either received them as e-tickets or instructed them to be held at will-call at our box office. You can stop by anytime during regular box office hours to pick up your tickets, or you can do so right before the show, just leave a couple of extra minutes. If you’ve lost them, no worries, we can easily reprint them for you. Tickets can also be purchased up until showtime at our box office.
Call our box office at (513) 421-3555 if you have need assistance with your tickets.
