  • You may enter the Performing Arts Center two hours before the starting time of an event.

    Seating policies are at the discretion of each presenting organization.

    If you arrive late and are held out, you can watch the performance from the TV monitors located on all three levels of the Chapman Music Hall and in the 2nd Street Lower Lobby. Holdouts generally last a few minutes — until there is a break in the action. However, the presenting organization may ask that patrons be held out until intermission.

    If you must leave once inside the theatre, you may not be allowed to re-enter until intermission. Please retain your ticket stub in case you are asked to show it upon re-entering the theatre.

  • Each event’s presenting organization, the TPAC website and the TPAC ticket office will carry information regarding a program’s suitability for children. Presenting organizations may ask that no children be admitted due to adult program content.

    For all TPAC events, every person who enters the theatre, regardless of age, must have a ticket. Certain presenters may allow children who are sitting on an accompanying adult's lap to have a free ticket. Please check with the presenting organization or the TPAC ticket office for information regarding specific performances. Some presenters may offer a reduced ticket price for students and children.

    Booster seats are available at the entrances to the theatres. Changing tables are available in TPAC restrooms.

  • Very few events held at the TPAC are formal. The level of dress is generally casual to business casual. Your comfort is our biggest concern. Some patrons enjoy dressing up. Others are most comfortable in jeans. Rest assured, you will see a little of everything.

  • The TPAC has a Listen Technologies RF system to assist people who are deaf or hard of hearing. Access to this system is available at the coat check area for shows in the Chapman Music Hall. Ask the house manager on duty for equipment for shows in the Williams, Doenges and Norman Theatres. Devices are provided at no cost.

  • You may check your coat in the 3rd Street Lobby of Chapman Music Hall. There is no coat check available in the 2nd Street Upper Lobby for events in the Williams, Doenges or Norman Theatres.

    Binoculars are available in the 3rd Street Lobby for events such as opera, ballet and Broadway musicals. For security, patrons must also leave a credit card or driver’s license until the equipment is returned.

  • Soft drinks, alcoholic drinks, water and a variety of snacks are available for purchase in the TPAC lobbies. Only snacks, bottled soft drinks and water with lids are allowed in our theatres.

    For all other beverages sold by concessions, only those in cups with lids, which are sold at the concession stands, are allowed in the theatres.

    In order to not disturb other patrons, please unwrap candy before the performance starts or during intermission.

  • Please silence all cell phones and messaging systems before entering the theatre.

    Please note there is absolutely no photography or recording allowed during any show, and the light from cell phones may disturb other patrons and performers.

    Please be courteous.

  • In order to find you quickly in case a personal emergency arises during an event, it is a good idea to leave your seat location and the name of the event you are attending with someone you trust.

    The TPAC number to give to that person is the TPAC Security Office phone line, (918) 596-7131

    The TPAC will post cancellation notifications on all social media accounts — Facebook, Twitter and Instagram — and the TPAC website.

  • INTERMISSION is the official program for events held at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. This magazine contains short informational pieces about current and upcoming events as well as other arts-related information.

    Program information specific to the event being attended is provided by presenting organizations and inserted into the magazine. The organization presenting the event may choose not to supply program information.

    INTERMISSION content is managed by TPAC staff. For questions or matters related to content or permission to reproduce, contact Amanda Nichols (anichols@tulsapac.com).

    To advertise in INTERMISSION, contact Langdon Publishing (jim@langdonpublishing.com) or 918-585-9924, ext. 19.

    Items found in the theatre are kept in the security office, which is located just inside the stage door.

  • Taking photos — with or without flash — and videos or recording an event in any manner is prohibited.

    The taking of flash photography can be dangerous for the performers.

    Recording devices, cameras and cell phones with built-in cameras may be confiscated should this rule be broken.

  • Restrooms are located on the balcony, mezzanine and 3rd Street Lobby floors for Chapman events and immediately adjacent to the 2nd Street Lower Lobby for events in the other theatres.

    A large suite of restrooms is also located on the Promenade level. Chapman Music Hall patrons can exit the west doors of the theatre for easy access.

  • The TPAC is a tobacco-free facility. Smoking and vaping are not permitted, nor is the use of chewing tobacco.
