Transfer seats may also be available and an usher will be happy to assist with the storing of your wheelchair during the performance. Along with advance notice, it is recommended that patrons using wheelchairs be accompanied by a companion to provide assistance. Seating for up to three companion patrons is available next to the wheelchair or transfer accessible patron seat. Depending on availability, seats for additional guests will be located as close as possible to the accessible seat location. Patrons, who wish to request additional disability-related accommodations, including sign-language interpreters, should contact the PAC Box Office & Patron Services at (661) 362-5304 no later than two weeks prior to the performance date to ensure best possible arrangements.

WHERE SHOULD I PARK, AND HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Parking is free for most Performing Arts Center events. College of the Canyons has ample parking in its student parking lots.

WHAT IS THE CENTER'S SMOKING POLICY?
Smoking is prohibited in the Performing Arts Center. If you are a smoker, look for clearly marked “smoking areas” outside of the building.
CAN I BRING MY OWN FOOD OR DRINKS TO PERFORMANCES?
No food or drink is allowed in either the main or Black Box theaters. A concession stand is located in the main lobby, first floor, of the Performing Arts Center, and all food and drink must be disposed of before entering the theaters. "COC Presents" shows have additional food and beverage concessions.
CAN I TAKE PHOTOS OR RECORD AT PERFORMANCES?
No. Taking still or video pictures and/or using tape recorders are strictly prohibited. Any patron who brings a camera or recording equipment into the theater will be asked to leave it with the house manager. This equipment will be returned to the patron after the event is over.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I ARRIVE LATE FOR A PERFORMANCE?
To cause the least amount of disruption to the performance and to other patrons, if you arrive late you’ll be seated at the discretion of the house manager. You might not be seated in your assigned seats until intermission.
MAY I BRING CHILDREN TO PERFORMANCES?
We welcome family attendance at the Performing Arts Center. Children 2 and older will require a ticket for entrance. Strollers and baby seats are not allowed in the theaters. Only you can decide whether a performance is suitable for and interesting to your child. We also ask you take into consideration whether a child can sit quietly for an entire performance without disturbing other members of the audience.
WHAT IS THE POLICY REGARDING CELL PHONES?
The ringing of a cell phone can be distracting for both the audience and the performers. If you bring a cell phone into the theater, we ask that you turn it off or put it in “vibrate” mode before the performance begins. If you must use your cell phone during intermission, please remember to turn it off before re-entering the theater.
DOES THE CENTER HAVE A DRESS CODE?
It is extremely difficult to enforce a dress code in a public facility such as the Performing Arts Center. However, we believe that dressing nicely and acting responsibly are important ways of showing respect for the performers, technicians, theater workers and everyone who is working hard to bring high-quality entertainment to our community. The house manager reserves the right to deny entry to anyone who may be wearing clothing or acting in a manner that will disrupt other patrons or the performers.
CAN THE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER BE RENTED?
