Picnic areas at the theatre

Many of our patrons bring their own picnics to eat in one of our four beautiful covered picnicking spaces: The East Deck, The Dutch Garden Lounge, The Mezzanine or The Terrace.

If you choose to bring your own picnic and eat onsite you must pre-book a table in one of these areas
