Do I need to print my ticket?

Can I buy tickets at the door?

Nope! Audience members may show either an online or printed ticket.

Yes, tickets will be available for purchase for $30 at the door. However, quantity will be limited! Buy your tickets ahead of time at

When will the ticket booth open?

Can performers buy tickets earlier?

3:30pm. In previous Prelude NorCal events, day-of ticket buyers tend to line-up for tickets earlier than when we open, so we recommend that you plan accordingly!

No, unfortunately our ticket booth will not be ready until 3:30pm.

Can I bring food into the theater?

Will there be food available for purchase?

Food and drinks are not allowed into the theater, but may be consumed outside the doors.

Unfortunately, we are not hosting any food vendors this year. We recommend that you grab dinner with your friends and/or family prior to the event!

Is there assigned seating?

Can I sit in the balcony?

No, this event is open seating, first-come-first-serve.

Balcony seating is reserved exclusively for performers. You need a performer’s badge and wristband in order to access the balcony. This guarantees a space for our performers so they can enjoy the show before and after their performances.

Can I bring signs/balloons into the theater?

Can I take pictures during the show?

Signs and balloons are heavily discouraged, as they block the view of other audience members trying to enjoy the show. However, cheering very loudly for the performers works even better than holding up signs!

Yes! Photography is allowed, WITHOUT the use of flash. Flash photography is distracting to our emcees and our on-stage performers.

How much is parking at the venue?

When will the show end?

Parking permits may be purchased on-site for $3. Permits need to be displayed on your car’s dashboard when parked onsite.

The show is scheduled to end around 9:45pm. There will be a freestyle segment and awards ceremony after the last exhibition performance. Performers can meet and greet their friends and family outside the theater!

Can I order a Prelude NorCal shirt online?

Unfortunately we will only be selling in-person on the day of Prelude NorCal for $25 each. Shirts from previous Prelude NorCal events will be available at a discounted price!

This is all useful information, but my question has not been answered yet!
