Does bench seating have assigned seats?

Do the benches have backs on them, or are they simply bleacher seating?
The benches have back rests attached to them.
May I take food and drink into the amphitheatre?
Yes. Food purchased at Sundance may be eaten in the amphitheatre. We do not allow any outside food or drink.
Can I bring a chair to sit on the lawn?
Lawn chairs are not permitted on the lawn. Individuals who would like a back rest must purchase a bench seat or bring a beach chair that doesn’t exceed 24 inches in total height from the ground to the top of the chair. Blankets are also permitted and even recommended for all lawn seating.
What does “general admission lawn” seating mean?
The lawn seating is general admission, which means seating is on a first come, first served basis. We recommend arriving early. Doors to the theatre open for seating beginning at 7:00 p.m.
How can I get the group rate?
The group rate is available for the Bluebird Cafe to any group with 20 or more members. This applies to tickets as well as the barbecue dinner. Group rates are only available over the phone by calling 801.734.4428.
Is there wheelchair access at the amphitheatre?
There are 6 wheelchair-specific areas in the bench seating area of the amphitheatre. Guests with wheelchairs are able to reserve the seats around these wheelchair areas so that they may sit with their group. This must be done in advance either by phone through the box office.
Do children require a ticket?
While we love having children at Sundance events, the Bluebird Cafe is intended for mature audiences. Due to the temperature variance, length of show and nature of the performance, we do not recommend bringing children under the age of 12.
All children age two and older require a ticket. Children under the age of two must sit on an adult’s lap. We strongly discourage bringing infants. Children who create a disturbance must be taken out of the theatre area immediately.
What is the inclement weather policy?
We will make every effort to complete each performance, rain or shine. No performance will be canceled due to weather prior to the 8:00 p.m. showtime. Please come prepared for inclement weather and dropping temperatures. No rainchecks or refunds will be issued. Should the weather conditions become threatening during the show, an announcement will be made on how we will proceed.
Is it cold up at the theatre?
Temperatures drop after the sun sets, so we recommend bringing jackets and/or blankets.
Are pets permitted at the events?
Service Animals are welcome at the Sundance Outdoor Amphitheater. All such animals must be under the control of their handlers at all times. Any animal that creates a disruption will be asked to leave the Amphitheater immediately; refunds will be distributed at the discretion of the house supervisor. Emotional Support Animals and pets are not permitted.
Are umbrellas allowed?
Small umbrellas are allowed for rainy weather. Large umbrellas are not permitted.
