Theatre Etiquette

These guidelines help to ensure that each audience member has the best possible experience when attending a performance at the Modlin Center for the Arts. 

Late Seating

Patrons arriving late to performances will be seated at the discretion of house management at an appropriate break. Latecomers may be seated in alternate seat locations to avoid disruption of the performance.


The Modlin Center welcomes patrons of all ages to experience and enjoy the arts. Please carefully consider whether a performance is appropriate for children before attending with young people. If you have concerns or questions about a specific event, please call the Box Office at (804) 289-8980.

University safety regulations require that all persons regardless of age, including babies and children seated in laps, must have a ticket for ticketed events. Be considerate of others in the audience and your young person's comfort. If the need arises house managers can help you find a quiet space outside the venue to give your little one a break.

No Perfume

Please refrain from wearing cologne, perfume, or fragranced personal products, as other patrons may be unable to enjoy the performance due to allergies or chemical sensitivity. Thank you for helping us make our events safe and accessible for others.
