I’m running out the door because I’m always late, what do I need to know?

Take a deep breath and relax because you’re in for a truly awesome night. But next time, try to get there early since seating is on a first-come, first served basis. And please keep in mind that if you don't pickup your tickets by showtime, or if you haven't arrived 15 minutes after the show has started, there is a chance that your tickets may be released to the public for resale. Don’t forget your ID and some dollar dollar bills or a major credit card because there is the two drink minimum inside the showroom. Drive safely and we’ll see you soon!

When do doors open?

Doors can open anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and a half prior to a show.

Where do I park and how much does it cost?

There is a large lot in the Cornerstone Mall and best of all – it’s free!

What if I left something behind or lost something last night? Do you have a lost and found?
