Yes, we are fully handicap accessible, with space for wheelchair patrons located in the front, back and balcony of the house. Our balcony has elevator access. We also have hearing assist headsets available on request.
How much parking is available?
For evening events we have adequate parking. Less parking is available for events that take place during the school year when Sacred Heart Schools is in session. We recommend that you tour our facilities to see if our parking situation will work for your daytime event that takes place during the school year.

Food and drink are only allowed in the Tom and Barbara Thieneman Atrium. Performers are permitted to have food and drink backstage and in the Green Room.

What does the tech fee cover?
The tech fee covers basic lighting and sound. Complex lighting designs requiring outside design time are subject to additional cost. Our technical director will operate either lighting or sound during your event. Should your event require both a sound and light board operator, additional crew can be provided by you or by UAC for an additional charge.
