Please note important change in Tickets and Seating policy and procedure this 2011:
***ALL performances except for movies and the daytime children’s performances require tickets for

Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30 a.m.―1 p.m. for
assigned seating under the canopy. If tickets remain at 1 p.m., the box office will re-open one hour before
show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.
Under normal circumstances, all unoccupied/unclaimed seats are released 5 minutes before
the show is scheduled to begin. We encourage all patrons to be in their assigned seats at least 10
minutes before showtime to insure that their seat is not released. Again, there is NO charge for tickets.
Tickets may not be reserved by phone. Only four (4) tickets per person. At managements’ discretion,
all unoccupied seats may be released at any time for any reason.
