No advance ticket sales or reservations, sorry to say! Just turn out & queue up with your friends, neighbors & fellow fans at 4:57pm day of show, buy your ducat, and wander off for some sustenance at one of our lovely little neighborhood spots. You’ll have to hours to enjoy yourself in nature, the bar or having dinner before you need to be back to claim your seat!
