Ticket Information

PCS offers Guaranteed Seating to our Patrons. When you purchase a ticket to a specific performance, you are guaranteed a seat for that show.

The Players Club has partnered with to bring you Guaranteed Seating as well as online and phone-based ticket ordering.

Our seating is general admission, and there are no bad seats in the intimate 298 seat house. In addition, there are 4 wheelchair accessible seating locations. All seats offer excellent views of the stage and good acoustics.

Doors open to the lobby one hour before curtain time. Doors to the house open 30 minutes before curtain.

Tickets are usually available up until curtain time for most performances. Guaranteed Tickets may be available up to 2 hours prior to a performance. For our most popular shows (usually musicals), we do occasionally sell out performances, so please order your tickets early to ensure that you will get a seat before coming to the theater.

We will hold your seat, but we will not hold the curtain, so please plan on arriving before curtain time on show night. It is up to the discretion of the House Manager to seat you after the performance begins.

Individual Shows

Individual tickets for our shows are sold by Phone or Internet up to 2 hours before curtain time. The Box Office sells available tickets right up until curtain unless the show is previously sold out. The box office opens 1 hour before curtain on show nights (and afternoons). Tickets can be purchased for any performance of any show when the box office is open.

Order tickets by phone by calling at 1-866-811-4111.

These radio devices allow you to hear everything perfectly, even from the back of the house!

We have a fully ADA-compliant restroom, with plenty of room to turn a motorized wheelchair around and automated controls on just about everything. The seats in our auditorium are cushioned, wide, and comfortable. There are four wheelchair spaces (two in front and two in the rear of the auditorium), as well as several easy access seats with flip-up arms.
