While you are welcome to print your ticket at home, it is not necessary. All reservations will be on our will call list.
* IF YOU PURCHASED A DISCOUNTED YOUTH/STUDENT/SENIOR TICKET, BE PREPARED TO SHOW YOUR ID *
Please note the performance time on your ticket confirmation, and plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to this start time.
Use the restroom when you arrive. There will be no intermission.
If you arrive after the performance has begun, you will miss some of the action. Slightly late arrivals will meet with staff and be guided to enter at an appointed time; due to staging, tardy entry to the first scene is unsafe for you and our performers. Please follow the directions We Players House Manager at all times.
Romeo & Juliet includes graphic sexual language and physical and emotional violence. This production is not suitable for children under 10.
Due to the nature of the site and audience trajectory, we are unable to accommodate infants.
Montalvo Arts Center has a wonderful campus - feel free to arrive early and relax or explore on-site! You may purchase food in advance (visit the ticketing site, click boxed meal next to your date of attendance, and select a turkey or ham sandwich or quinoa salad), or purchase beer and wine at a designated picnic area pre-performance.
While stools and kneelers are available, we will primarily be on our feet, walking, standing, and quickly changing positions over the course of the 3 hour experience.
While the Capulets will offer light refreshments at their masquerade ball, please plan to eat a full meal before you arrive, or bring easy-to-manage snacks if you know you'll need them.
GPS directions to Montalvo Arts Center are accurate and straightforward.
Please carpool with friends if possible, as parking is limited. Note that parking costs $10/ car. Please bring cash to pay at the gate.
Parking for this event will be in Lot 4. Continue to the left after passing the Villa.
Plan to dress in layers for variable weather, as we will be outside for the duration of the experience.
Wear comfortable, close-toed shoes. You will be on your feet, walking, standing, and quickly changing positions over the course of the 3 hour experience. Registration will have a small collection of folding stools for those who most need them. We will also have small mats for sitting/ kneeling, for those who want to be closest to the action, and are able to get down and up off the ground easily. Please note: you will need to quickly place and pick up your seat to follow the action and you will be carrying all that you bring.
Audience will be navigating uneven paths, grassy lawns, and stairs. If you or anyone in your party has mobility disabilities - or any disabilities that require assistance - and we have not already been in touch, please call us at 415-547-0189 so we can best accommodate your needs.
Note that kerchiefs and masks will be distributed and collected during the experience. Please cooperate with our crew and help us keep our limited stock by returning these items when requested.
Remember that you can often choose where and how to position yourself so you can best see and hear. Work with your fellow audience members and We Players staff to stay close to the action of the play. The action is often rapid fire in Romeo & Juliet! Be aware that the audience, as a group, sometime pivots 180 degrees. If you choose a mat at registration, take your sitting/ kneeling position when you find yourself at the front, and stand when at the back of the group.
Note that a blank-firing mechanism will be used in the production, creating a loud "bang."
And enjoy the show!
