Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

There is no minimum age requirement to enter the event, however we do request photo ID at the door if you wish to purchase an alcoholic beverage.

Do I need to bring anything?

If you would like to purchase a beverage, raffle tickets, or bid on the silent auction, please bring cash and/or a checkbook! Debit cards/credit cards will not be accepted.

What are my parking options for the event, and where is the theatre?

There are two parking lots across from the entrance on Great Arrow Avenue. The lot closer to Elmwood Avenue is closer to the entrance. Enter the glass door with the blue awning. 255 Great Arrow will be written on the awning. If it is locked, please buzz the button labeled The Alt Theatre (3).

Once in the building, walk straight ahead, make a right at the end of the hallway, enter through the glass doors and take the stairs up to the 3rd floor. Turn to the right (you will see a dance floor in the hallway) and walk past Subversive Theatre following the long hallway past all of the windows. You will see the Alt Theatre lobby area on your right at the end of the hallway.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please email Lauren Alaimo at lauren.nicole.alaimo@gmail.com.

What time is the performance?

The performance will begin around 8:15 pm and will be 6 minutes long.

May I come late?

The doors will remain open until 9:30pm. However, if you arrive while the performance is in progress, you will find a sign on the door asking you to patiently wait outside until it is over. We will greet you at the door right when it's done!

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

You may print your ticket, or show your mobile ticket at the door.

When will winners be announced for the basket raffle and silent auction?

The raffle and auction will close at 9:30 pm, and winners will be announced as quickly as we can pull them!

If I win the raffle or silent auction, do I have to be present to collect myprize?

Yes, you must be present to collect your prize. If you are not present, the winnings will go to the next ticket pulled, or bidder.
