Event times and talent are subject to change, please check back for final event schedule, or join our mailing list to receive an email of the confirmed times/schedule.

Tickets do not guarantee access into a particular show -- if the room is at capacity, we can't cram more people into it. We do our best to program the shows into the right size rooms. If you really want to see a show, line up and make sure you're one of the first to get a seat. This has always worked in the past and we strive to program shows in the appropriate size room.
