Before & After

What time the theatres open, things to do before and after the show, and more!

Venue Hours

The Schuster Center is regularly open to the public 6 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sunday. Holiday hours may vary. The Victoria Theatre, PNC Arts Annex, and The Loft Theatre buildings are open during events only.

The theatre lobbies open one hour before performances. The seating area 30 minutes before the performance.

Before The Show

Stop by one of our lobby bars or Starbucks in the Schuster Center Wintergarden before your performance! Our Broadway Series performances offer preshow events like Background On Broadway, and some performances have VIP options. Check the show’s listing on this website for specific preshow information.

Performance Bars

At most performances, we provide a full bar including beer, wine, liquor, soft drinks, and water. Grab your favorite snack and enjoy your show. Some productions will have specialty drinks and Laura’s Cookies! Our Performance Bars open when the lobby opens and close after intermission. If the performance does not have an intermission, the Performance Bar will close 15 minutes after the show starts.

After The Show

Your night doesn’t have to end after the final curtain — there are several downtown options for music and drinks following a performance. Visit the Downtown Dayton Partnership’s website for more information.
