Seating

The Center has a proscenium theatre with continental seating, which means that there is no center aisle. It has one orchestra section with two side aisles. It is a small, intimate theatre, which seats 509 persons; it is 17 rows deep with approximately 30 seats in each row. There are no “bad” seats; visibility is quite good from every seat in the house.

The Robert E. Parilla Performing Arts Center features wheelchair accessible parking, entrances, restrooms, telephones, and seating.

Theatergoers may enjoy our free infrared system for the hearing impaired from any seat during any performance. Receivers are available on a first come, first served basis at the Box Office. A valid form if identification (current driver's license, college i.d., etc.) must be left with the Box Office to obtain the headsets. The i.d. will be returned to you when the headsets are turned back in.
