Know Where To Go

Dance performances are usually presented in the Dance Building on South Campus. Occasionally, however, large dance corps come to UGA. These programs are usually presented in the Fine Arts Auditorium, Hodgson Hall, the Georgia Center for Continuing Education, or the Classic Center.

Drama performances are usually presented in one of three theatres: the Cellar Theatre, the Fine Arts Theatre, or the Seney-Stoval Chapel.

Know If You Need a Ticket

Tickets are usually required for all dance performances. For information about getting tickets for particular events, contact the Department of Dance.

Tickets are also usually required for drama performances. Student tickets are available, as are season tickets, at a special rate. For more information about drama performances, contact the Department of Theatre and Film Studies.

Come Early

Arrive early so that you have time to buy your ticket. You should plan for enough time to discover the space, to check where the restrooms, water fountains, and exits are, and to find and get settled in your seat.

Know What You're Going to See

When you have found your seat and are settled, read your program to familiarize yourself with what you are about to see.

Be Very Quiet

Remain quiet during the program.

Performance halls ask that you turn off your cell phone before the performance begins, and you are not allowed to take photographs (especially flash!). Under NO circumstances should you EVER talk on your cell phone, text, or play games on your phone during a performance. It is disturbing to those around you and, can be distracting to the performers.

Applause is Good

Show your appreciation to the performers at the end of the performance with your applause.
