    • Each audience member must show proof of vaccination and state ID at the door for admittance.
    • Please present your vaccination card (electronic photos and copies are acceptable) and state ID when you arrive. Only fully vaccinated members of the public may be admitted. Negative PCR and rapid test results are not valid for admittance.
    • Patrons with medical or religious exemptions may be admitted but must contact the box office a minimum of 48 hours before the performance for additional review and guidance. Masks are required for medical and religious exemptions.

Visiting Company

This is the sensational drama about Troy Maxson, a former star of the Negro Baseball League, who now works as a garbage man in Pittsburgh. Troy and his wife Rose want the American Dream – to own a house with a white picket fence that keeps the family safe and trouble out. When mistrust builds and secrets are revealed, this iconic Black family begins to crumble in America’s embrace. Director Monty Cole’s innovative and intimate production explodes Wilson’s masterful text with raw emotion. You’ve never seen Fences like this before!
