Emergency

Power Outage: If the power goes out during a performance, the emergency lighting system will be activated. Patrons should remain seated and await instructions from House Management.

Weather Emergency: In the event of severe or threatening weather, an announcement will be made. If a tornado warning is issued, the safest place to be is inside the performance hall away from windows and glass. House Management will keep you informed and let you know when the emergency has passed.

Injuries: If you have an accident or need medical attention, please contact House Management immediately. Our trained staff is on hand to assist you.

Fire Alarms: The Weidner Center is equipped with stateĀ­of-the-art smoke and fire monitoring systems. At times, the fire alarms may be activated by fog and smoke machines used on stage during performances. If the alarm system sounds, please:

  • Wait for instructions from House Management.
  • If evacuation is necessary, you will be directed to WALK to the closest exit.
  • The Exit Sign nearest your seat is the shortest and safest route to the outside of the building. In the event of an emergency, walk to that exit; an usher will assist you.
