First Time Guests
THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW FOR A GREAT VISIT TO MPCC
WELCOME TO THE SHOW.
The big night has finally arrived and we hope you enjoy your experience at the Mizner Park Cultural Center, and please know that we are here to help. If you have a question or need assistance of any kind, please just ask a member of our staff. We believe in great entertainment experiences, and we want to be our guests’ favorite place for live events.
While going to the Mizner Park Cultural Center is certainly a special occasion, there is no required dress code. You’ll probably be most comfortable in casual business attire, but you’ll often see people in jeans, khakis, and other more less formal wear. Some people enjoy dressing up and making a special night of it, and you can too, but most of all we want our guests to be comfortable.
We would ask that you politely consider other guests’ possible allergic reactions when applying fragrances like perfumes or colognes, as MPCC is a closed area.
COME EARLY. DON’T BE LATE.
It’s the #1 complaint we hear from our veteran guests. Late-arriving guests can truly dampen the magic and the mood that is created when the lights go down and a performance stars. We recommend planning your travel, so that you arrive in Boca Raton no later than 45-60 minutes before show time.
Parking is located in many locations at Mizner Park, including full service valet right at our front door. Our lobby doors open 60 minutes prior to show time; seating areas open 30 minutes prior to show time for most shows. With the schedule we recommend above, you’ll arrive with plenty of time to find your seat, get settled, or enjoy a pre-show drink or a light snack. Also, if you’re late, you may end up listening to the beginning of the show from the lobby. Most shows require that our ushers hold late arrivals in the lobby until a suitable pause in the program. The timing of allowing late arrivals into the seating area is determined by the show and designed to cause as little disruption as possible to other guests and the performers on stage.
SNACKS AND REFRESHMENTS
We invite you to enjoy drinks and light snacks before the show in the Lobby.
Most shows usually last two to three hours, and many have an intermission. Intermissions for most shows move very quickly and commonly run just 15-20 minutes. While we wish we could extend these breaks, each show we host sets a very strict schedule from which we cannot vary. Within the time allowed, you can socialize with your companions, get a drink or a snack in the lobby, or simply stay in your seat and relax so you’ll be ready for the second half of the show.
CONTENT ADVISORY / PARENTAL DISCRETION
We offer a diverse selection of entertainment. Not all productions may appeal to or be appropriate for every guest or for all ages. Ticket buyers should take responsibility for making informed decisions regarding their purchases. We recommend visiting the official website of each show. If you ever have questions about the content or appropriateness of a show, please contact us at (844) MPCC-TIX.
At MPCC, we’re committed to Guest Courtesy. Please follow these rules when attending any of our events:
CAMERAS / RECORDING
Photography and video recording is prohibited. All electronic devices (cell phones, smart phones, tablets, digital cameras) must be turned off before entering the seating area. Cameras with detachable lens are not allowed into the building, and for some shows no cameras of any kind are allowed including small point-and-shoot cameras.
KIDS AT MPCC
All guests require a ticket, regardless of age. Children must be able to sit quietly in their own seat without disturbing other guests. Some shows make further age appropriate recommendations, and we will provide those on its website; however, parental discretion is always advised, and judgment of the content for each show should be made on an individual basis prior to purchase. When available, we provide links to show websites for further information and recommendations.
Please save texting until AFTER the show. Also, the light from phones is distracting to others throughout the theater. Please put your phones on silent once entering theater for the enjoyment of everyone.
FOOD AND DRINK IS ALLOWED.
Small snacks and drinks are welcome in the seating area, but as a courtesy to those around you, eat and drink as quietly as possible. Please know that odors and noisy wrappers can disturb others. We also ask that you finish sandwiches or other large food items before entering the seating area.
Once the show starts, please let the stage be the center of attention. We ask that you silence all cell phones and limit conversation. If children are attending this performance with you please exit the theater immediately if they become restless or talkative.
