Family Friendly Events
Many events at the Civic Theatre are specifically designed for children and families and we encourage you to enjoy these events with your children.

For events not specifically geared for young audiences, parents are asked to use discretion when bringing young children. All patrons, regardless or age must have a ticket and be able to sit quietly throughout the performance.

Parents will be asked to remove their child/children if they are causing disruptions.
