Tickets: If you wish to be seated with a group and are purchasing tickets separately, please note this in the comments box at checkout. We will use best efforts to accommodate group requests when notified in advance. It is often not possible to accommodate group seating requests at the door. If one member of the group can purchase tickets for all members, that is the easiest way to ensure everyone can sit together.
