Take exit 105 and go toward “State Capitol/City Center,” merging onto 14th Ave SE.
At the traffic circle, continue straight to stay on 14th Ave SE.
Turn right onto Capitol Way S.
Turn right onto 4th Avenue and continue 1 block to the corner of 4th and Washington.
We’re on the left. You can’t miss the marquee.

Know Before You Go

Theater Etiquette

Come as you are! Many of our guests dress up to come to the theater, but we invite you to dress as you feel comfortable.

Remember, use of cameras, cell phones, and recording devices is not permitted in the auditorium.

Unless the show is under 90 minutes, there will probably be an intermission. If you can wait to get out of your seat until then, our actors and your fellow audience members would greatly appreciate it!

Latecomers will be seated at the House Manager’s discretion. Usually this means you will be seated in the gallery until a break in the show allows an usher to show you to your reserved seats.


For our patrons with mobility challenges, we offer front-row seats, handicap-accessible bathrooms, and gently sloping aisles. If you or your companion have a mobility need, let our box office know when you purchase your tickets. Please arrive early enough for the show so that we can get you comfortably seated before the show begins.

We also offer hearing assistance devices for patrons who require them, free of charge at the Concessions counter.


We offer a delicious selection of concessions, including tea, coffee, beer, wine, soda, candy, cookies, and other treats. Our concessions stand is open before the show and during intermission. You may even take your drinks into the theater!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this show appropriate for children?

Harlequin Productions produces an eclectic array of work. We are artists creating challenging work for an audience of enthusiastic and curious minds. Since all children–and all families–are different, we leave decisions as to what is appropriate for children up to the parents. We usually indicate on our website whether a show has content of potential concern, but we believe that children are more resilient–and enthusiastic and curious–than our current culture seems to believe. (We know we were.) Our box office can answer more specific questions about individual shows. No babes in arms, please.

Can I take pictures?

Please refrain from using cameras and/or recording devices during the performance. It is distracting to both the actors and other audience members.


Our box office staff is happy to assist you in planning your evening at Harlequin Productions. The box office can be reached at (360) 786-0151, Tuesday-Friday from 12:00pm to 6:00pm, and two hours before every show.
