FAQs

What should I wear?
Remy Bumppo patrons dress in many different ways. Some prefer business attire, some prefer jeans. We encourage you to wear whatever makes you feel the most comfortable.
How do I get to the theatre?
Theater Wit is accessible by car and public transportation. For more information, visit our transportation and parking page.
How early should I get to the theatre?
The seating typically opens 20 mintues before curtain. We have assigned seating, so, if you purchased your tickets in advance, your arrival time will not affect where you sit. You will want to give yourself enough time so that you don’t feel rushed to get to your seats and have the chance to use the restrooms or make a purchase at the lobby bar.
Where will I be sitting?

If you already have purchased tickets, you should have your seat number. To see where the exact section and seat are located in the performance space, view the seating chart >

Is the theater accessible to patrons with disabilities?
Yes, the theatre is accessible to patrons with disabilities. For more information, explore our accessibility programming and accommodations >
What happens if I'm late to a show?
The house opens twenty minutes prior to the performance for seat selection. Due to capacity issues and performance requirements there is no late seating. 

If you are unable to be seated, please talk to the Theater Wit Box Office staff immediately. While all ticket sales are non-refundable and non-exchangeable, the Theater Wit Box Office issue vouchers (see below) that you can use to see a subsequent performance. Alternatively, you can convert your ticket purchase into a tax-deductible donation if your schedule doesn’t allow you to return.

 

Vouchers

Patrons with a voucher can attend any performance presented by that company. To redeem the voucher, just drop by the theater on the day of the performance and put your name on the waiting list. Theater Wit will release new tickets for the performance as soon as they’re able to, based on availability, on a first-come, first-served basis.

What if I need to exchange my ticket?
Exchanging tickets is an added benefit that we reserve for our subscribers. Read more about our ticket policies here >
