Ice Cream

While we ask attendees not to eat or drink during performances, many shows have a 20 minute interval, which is an excellent opportunity for refreshments.

To make coordinating your interval easier, you may wish to pre-order ice creams for your groups. Pre-orders can be made by completing an order form and sending it with payment to the address on the form, or alternatively handing it to the Welcome Point, with payment, on your arrival at the theatre.
