Because of our a unique, historic building, certain items are not permitted in the Saenger Theater. The following items are prohibited because they can damage specific parts of the building: glitter (which damages the carpeting and upholstery), feathers (which get into the ventilation system), balloons (which can become trapped in the auditorium or stage ceiling), unapproved tape (which damages the historic finishes), and pyrotechnics or any open flame (which are fire hazards).
In addition, we restrict a number of activities. For example, no screwing, drilling, or other modifications may be performed on ANY part of the Saenger Theater at any time. If you need to use tape to hang signs, mark locations on the stage floor, etc., please consult the Saenger staff prior to placing the tape on a theater surface. Some tapes will damage certain surfaces. The Saenger keeps a limited amount of approved tapes and can provide a reasonable amount for your use at no cost.
Painting of any type (especially spray paint) is prohibited within the building or on the adjacent sidewalks. All scenery, props, flies, costumes, etc. should be ready for use upon arrival. If you have special needs in this regard, please see the Saenger staff.
