We recommend you plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to showtime to allow ample time to find parking, get checked in, and order a drink before the show begins! Due to our space and the nature of our productions, we are not able to offer late seating and latecomers will not be admitted. At Theo, wearing masks is strongly recommended.
Children under age 6 (including babes in arms) are not admitted, unless the production is advertised for younger audiences. Regardless of age, everyone must have a ticket and be able to sit quietly through the performance. If any child or patron starts causing a distraction, the entire party will be asked to leave.
Please note the theatre’s temperature is pre-set for actor safety making the room cool to some patrons. We ask that you please dress in layers if you feel this will be a concern for you.

Where To Sit

While the configurations can change with each production, Theo Ubique always provides an intimate cabaret experience with seating in three sections. Bar seats swivel for a full view of the performance, riser seats are a step up on both stage right and left. There are some chairs at floor level as well. Table seats are generally shared four tops also at floor level.

The house opens for seating ninety minutes before showtime and patrons are always encouraged to arrive early to have a drink.

About Our Restrooms

Theo Ubique Cabaret Theatre commits to providing accessible and all-gender restrooms as an important way to show full access and inclusion.

Mask Policy

Theo is no longer requiring masking for audiences at our performances but it is strongly recommended. We support any individual’s choice to mask! If you are not feeling well, are exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms, or have had or been exposed to COVID-19 in the past 10 days, you should not attend a show. If you are unable to attend a performance due to these reasons, please contact Theo’s box office to discuss rescheduling. All patrons understand that there is a risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place where people are present. Those purchasing tickets and attending Theo productions and events voluntarily assume all risks related to COVID-19 exposure.
