Information about attending UIndy Arts events
We are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding a UIndy Arts performance. The information listed below may help you plan, or feel free to call us at the number listed above.
What to wear
Some patrons wear jeans, while others dress up. It's up to you.
Tickets may be purchased at the E.T.C. during regular business hours or at the performance venue one hour prior to most productions, excluding the Department of Theatre's annual dinner theatre. Tickets for that performance must be purchased in advance.
L/P credit for UIndy students
Student representatives from the Lecture Performance Series will be located in the lobby prior to every performance to distribute L/P slips. You must remain for the entire performance. Afterward, you may return the slip to the L/P representative.
If possible, please try to leave during a scene change or between musical numbers to cause the least amount of disruption to other patrons and the performers. If you wish to return to the production, please ask an usher for assistance.
Phone calls & texting during performances
It is never appropriate to have a phone conversation or to text during a performance. These activities are disruptive to other patrons and the performers. Electronic devices can also affect sound equipment and communication systems, so please turn phones off (not just on silent or vibrate).
Taking pictures or videos
Photographing or recording of sound or video, without prior permission from UIndy officials, is strictly prohibited. For permission, please contact the specific department that is producing the performance.
As a courtesy to other patrons and the performers, please do not bring infants or preschoolers to the production. Some of our performances are not appropriate for children.
