We have 80 reserved chairs available for each OUTDOOR MUSICAL THEATRE performance (reserved seats are not available for movie nights).
Leave your lawn chair at home and still get a great seat! Arrive right before the show begins and still be guaranteed a prime seat! See the map below to see where in the bowl the reserved chairs are located. Reserved chairs may be purchased online in advance (recommended) or if available, by visiting the box office the night of the performance. Reserved chairs are $20 (plus tax) per chair. Please note, this ticket covers entry as well as your chair, of course. Book early, availability is limited! You may also CHANGE your reservation for reserved chairs up until showtime on the day of the performance!


Parking for our disabled patrons at TIP's OUTDOOR amphitheater is located directly adjacent to gate #3 next to our reserved parking. Anyone with an appropriate plaque will be admitted to park in disabled parking free of charge, of course!


Want a guaranteed "short walk" to the gates of the OUTDOOR theatre? Our reserved parking section just steps away from gate #3 is for you! Reserved parking passes are available for only $5 and can be purchased online in advance!


Visit the OUTDOOR theater and see every performance of every show... and... park in the reserved parking area every time for a one-time fee of only $25 dollars! That's right! Visit when ever you like and park in reserved parking every time! Purchase full season parking passes directly online and don't even stand in line at the box office!
