  • There is a drop off point at each theater where a driver can drop off a patron needing assistance.  We provide an usher to be waiting for them and can assist with getting the patron into the theater in a wheelchair.  All locations are on this form.  We do have some wheelchairs we can provide simply for transporting the patron to and from the theater.  This service is also available post show.  The patron can let the usher who is helping them preshow that they will also need assistance afterwards and that will be arranged then. We ask that all areas on the form are filled out properly.  These forms are given to our Front of House Managers day of show and that is the only thing they have to go off on for the patron.   Also this does not have to be filled out at the time of purchase, a patron can call back at any time and request this.
