What is your theatre like?

What time do the doors open?

Will there be an intermission and an opportunity to purchase beverages and snacks?

Is it okay to take photographs at a concert?

Bringing cameras to concerts in an intimate theatre such as Vacaville Performing Arts Theatre is generally discouraged. It is very rare that performers allow members of the audience to take photographs – and never video.
