Priority entry will be given to Fringe Pass holders only. You do not need to book a seat but one will be held for you. However, please note that you must arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the show that you will attend and check in with the box office staff to receive priority entry. If you arrive late, your seat will be released for sale to the public. You will then need to line up and enter with the rest of the patrons. And if a seat is available, then you may take that seat. Please plan ahead to find parking and to get to the venue.
