Q: Where should I park?

Click here for a map of parking on campus.
Q: How early should I arrive?
A:
We suggest you arrive anywhere from an hour to a half hour prior to show time. Please review your tickets for your exact show time. Should you need to pick up tickets from the Box Office Will Call window, please arrive at the Will Call window no later than ½ hour prior to the performance. The Box Office opens one hour prior to show time.
Q: When do they start seating?
A:
Seating starts approximately 30 minutes prior to the start of a show. Please plan to arrive early enough to park and walk from the parking lots.
Q: Can I be seated if I’m late?
A:
In most cases, there will be NO late seating. Some shows will allow seating during intermission. However, late seating is at the discretion of the management and is based upon the director’s choice for interrupting the performance, as well as the safety of the actors and audience.
Q: Do all your performance venues have wheelchair access?
A:
Yes. The Main Theater, the Studio 105 Theatre, and the OAB Auditorium offer companion seating and seating for patrons with wheelchairs. A special wheelchair ticket is required. Please contact the Box Office at (559) 442-8221 for availability. The Recital Hall is wheelchair accessible. Wheelchair seating is behind the last row.
Q: What should I wear?
A:
Theatre and music are fun – a great time to dress up! Still, we like our patrons to be comfortable. Dressing up might mean a business suit or dress for some, while for others it may mean a sport jacket or nice pants outfit. For still others, it may mean a clean pair of jeans or nice shorts and a polo shirt. Any of these wardrobe choices are perfect!
Q: This is my first music concert. Is there anything special I should know?
A:

Yes. The performances you will see at Fresno City College are different from your average concert at the Savemart Center. Here are a few basic rules of concert etiquette.

     1. It is impolite to talk, or even whisper, while the music is being performed. Listeners and performers are also distracted by sounds from programs, candy wrappers, jewelry, and other objects. Remain still, and be thoughtful of others by talking or making sounds only between numbers.

     2. Turn off pagers and cell phones. Do not text during the concert. It is distracting to the musicians and your fellow concertgoers.

     3. Do not take flash photography.

     4. Applaud at appropriate times. Watch the conductor when the music stops to decide whether or not to applaud. Some musical works have several parts or movements and the audience is expected to applaud only after all movements have been performed.

     5. Never stand or move around while music is being performed. It distracts listeners around you, as well as the performers. If you must leave for any reason, wait until a piece is finished and the audience is applauding. Also, return to your seat only between numbers.

     6. If you must arrive late, please wait until there is a break between musical selections before entering the concert.
