Experiencing Our Shows
Does the theatre have a dress code? What is the typical attire?
The Alliance Theatre does not have a dress code. The Alliance does, however, adhere to a strict no shirt, no shoes, no show policy. We also ask that you not wear clothing with offensive language. Note that all of our facilities are air conditioned/heated for your comfort — please dress appropriately.
Can I eat or drink during a performance?
Drinks and food purchased at the bars in the lobby and alcoves upstairs are allowed inside the theatre. Please any wrappers before you enter to not cause distractions during the performance.
What COVID-19 safety protocols are in place for my visit?
Please visit our COVID Safety Protocols page for the most up to date policies and safety protocols.
How can I know if a particular show will be appropriate for my child or teen?
Information regarding content disclaimers and recommended ages for particular shows may be found on the specific production information page by viewing our production listings. For most shows, children under five years of age are not typically admitted (this does not apply to our Kathy & Ken Bernhardt Theatre for the Very Young program — it is designed specifically for children under five).
Where is the lost and found?
Personal items found in the theatre are kept in the House Manger’s office for 24-48 hours. The items are then turned in to the Woodruff Arts Center security office and may be picked up there. Please call 404-733-4600 for help locating your item.
Can I use my phone/tablet/laptop during a performance?
No — using devices with screens (and particularly ones that also make sounds) disrupts the cast and other patrons (they are very visible from the stage). The best thing to do in order to avoid distracting others is to make sure your device is powered off before entering the theatre. However, we absolutely hope that you text/tweet/facebook everyone you know after the performance to let them know what a great time you had here!
What if I'm late?
If you already have your tickets, please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the show. After the performance has begun, it may not be possible to seat you in your assigned seat. If there is an appropriate pause in the production, we will do our best to seat you toward the back of the theater in order to avoid disrupting the performance (you will be able to watch the show from a monitor in the lobby or from one of our observation rooms at the back of the Coca-Cola Stage until we can sneak you in). However, please note that some productions on our Hertz Stage cannot accommodate late seating, so please arrive early.

- There is no smoking allowed in the theatre, lobby, or parking garage at any time
