All groups will receive an email prior to show day with directions for bus drop off and vehicle parking. If you arrive by bus, your bus will be greeted by a staff member or volunteer from the theater. They will give instructions to the group as to where they should line up. Once your group has lined up an usher will take you to your seats. The ushers are volunteers who donate their time to make it possible for Chandler Center for the Arts to be available to school audiences. The ushers will instruct your group to fill in every seat in your designated area.
