We’re embracing the outdoor show vibe with a “bring your own chair” policy. Grab a lawn chair or even one of those plastic blow up chairs from Spencer’s Gifts (blankets aren’t recommended but we can’t stop you). Some other helpful things might be bug spray, a flashlight, and a bottle of water.

We will have food trucks at each performance and alcohol will be sold on site. No outside alcohol is allowed at this event. Some food trucks may be cash only. Check out our schedule of vendors!

ATC can take cards but food trucks or vendors may be cash only.

Our tickets are going paperless! A confirmation email with your tickets will be sent after purchase. You’ll need to show the email to the box office when you arrive.

You can add on a ticket protection plan for five dollars per ticket, which will ensure that you can receive a refund of your ticket price if you are unable to attend the event for any reason.

The performance will be smokin’ but you shouldn’t be.

Service Animals (as defined by the ADA) are always welcome at ATC shows but we ask that the rest of your fur babies, including Emotional Support/Comfort Animals, stay safe at home.

Seating for our production of THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW will be organized into socially distanced pods. Pods will be 10ft in diameter, 6ft apart from other pods, and will hold a maximum of four people.

All performances of THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW will begin at 7:30 PM.

Unfortunately, for our outdoor shows, we are unable to offer assisted listening devices. However, all shows will have enhanced sound with the actors wearing microphones.

We plan to rock out rain or shine with the exception of severe storms. We will reserve a 1 hour window of time from 8pm to 9pm to decide if we need to cancel the performance. For your convenience, we are offering a $5 ticket protection plan which will allow you to reschedule your ticket if your performance is cancelled.

The safety and well-being of our patrons, artists and staff are our top priority. All patrons will be required to show proof of full vaccination and a photo ID before entering the seating area. We also ask that you wear a mask any time you are not seated in your reserved pod. As the situation changes, we’ll make appropriate adjustments and update our Health and Safety page.
