Theater Etiquette

Smoke-Free Park

State law prohibits smoking in Cain Park. Smoking is only allowed outside the park entrances. 

Audience Conduct

Depending on the audience and type of event, standing during a concert may be accepted as normal. Many artists will instruct Cain Park staff not to ask anyone to sit down during their performance. Each situation is handled on an individual basis. 

As a courtesy to the performers and those seated around you, please silence all cell phones, smartphones, pagers, and watches with alarms prior to the performance and again after intermission. 

Disturbing fellow patrons by loud conversation or otherwise inappropriate behavior is not permitted and may result in removal from the event without a refund.

Late Seating

We make every effort to start Cain Park events on time - so please allow ample time for travel, parking, and walking the well-lit pathways into the park. But if in spite of your good intentions, you arrive after the performance has started, you will be seated at the discretion of the House Manager. Cain Park accepts no responsibility for any inconvenience.

Photos / Recording Devices

Most performer's contracts prohibit the use of cameras and recording devices of any type. All cameras and recording devices may be checked at the Ticket Office for pick-up following the concert. If the performer welcomes or encourages photography and/or recording during their concert, Cain Park will follow their wishes.
