Have Questions? Here are a few of our most common answers…

What Time Should I Arrive?

While the show time may vary (typically 7:30pm on Friday & Saturday, and either 6pm or 2pm on Sunday), we suggest you arrive early and enjoy a glass of beer or wine before the show.

Where Should I Park?

The parking garage on 18th and Eye is a great spot. You can also have Dinner at the Mark before our performance, and use their valet parking until after the show.

What If I Missed the Show and Already Purchased Tickets?

Not to worry! If you forgot or missed the show, we do allow you to transfer your tickets to another night.

What Do I Wear?

Dress for the Ovation Theatre is Casual to Nice (slacks preferred). Dress comfortably, but also to enjoy the professional theatre environment!

Do You Serve Alcohol?

We do serve local & brand-name beers (draft options available) and great wines. We’ve personally taste-tested every offering to make sure they meet our standards.

Do You Sell Season Tickets?

We do! Who doesn’t want more of a great thing? You can purchase season tickets on our website HERE.

Who Owns the Ovation Theatre?
