Getting to the Playhouse
Getting to the Playhouse:
Where can I park?
Please park only in parking spots designated with white lines. Do not park in the loading zone or in the middle of the parking lot. That area must remain clear for ease of movement and for emergency vehicles. Cars parked in the middle area will be towed.
Are you close to the Smart Train station?
Yes, we are located within a short walking distance of the Santa Rosa Smart Train station. See a map of our location here.
What if I arrive late?
Late seating is not always allowed, but when it is, our Stage Manager will direct the usher to show you to a seat at a non-interruptive moment in the performance. You may be asked to wait until intermission to take your assigned seat. Transportation, traffic, and parking can be unpredictable, so please allow extra time in order to make your outing stress-free.
Is your theatre wheelchair accessible?
Yes, both our GK Hardt Theatre and Monroe Stage are wheelchair accessible. Please call the Box Office in advance to ensure wheelchair accessible seating.
Can I bring my child under 5?
To ensure quality for both patrons and performers, 6th Street Playhouse productions are generally best enjoyed by children over the age of 5. Consider selecting an aisle seat when bringing your child to a production in case an unavoidable bathroom break is needed. Everyone entering the theatre, regardless of age, must have a ticket, and children must occupy their own seat – no lap sitting. Any patron, of any age, creating a disturbance will be asked to leave and the tickets will not be refunded.
Can I bring my animal?
To ensure that everyone has a magical experience, we do not allow pets or animals of any kind. Under ADA guidelines, any guide dog, signal dog, or other animal individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability, is permitted into the theatre.
Is there a dress code?
There is no dress code, you should wear what makes you comfortable. Some people may be wearing jeans, while others use the theatre as a reason to dress up.
Will concessions be available?
Yes! Snacks, including brownies, cookies and nuts, and drinks, including beer, wine, coffee, tea, soda and water, are available in both the GK Hardt Theatre and Monroe Stage.
Can I bring outside food or beverages to the theater?
Only bottled water or beverages purchased at concessions in the lobby before or during intermission are permitted inside the theater. Beverages besides bottle water must be contained in a “sippy cup” (plastic cup with snap-on lid) in the G.K. Hardt Theatre and the Monroe Stage, and any other concessions must be consumed before stepping into the theater. “Sippy cups” can be purchased at our concessions before and during intermission of a performance. Food is not permitted in either theater.
Can I take photos/video of a performance?
There is no photography or filming allowed during the performance. This includes 6th Street Studio productions. You are welcome to take photos in the theater before or during intermission. On opening nights, the cast will be present in the lobby to mingle and take photos with audience members if requested.

Railroad Square’s eateries feature a full range of international and local cuisine. Coffee houses, casual brunches and popular wine tasting rooms offer something for every palate.
Sadly, we are now witnessing a dramatic upsurge in COVID 19 Delta Variant cases. In response, 6th Street Playhouse is taking an aggressive step in trying to protect the Actors, Staff, Volunteers and you, our Patrons, by asking for proof of vaccination for anyone over the age of 12. Also, you must be prepared to wear masks throughout the performance and intermission. We hope this is not an inconvenience but should you disagree with our cautious approach , we can issue you a credit, which can be used for future performance tickets when the crisis has abated, or a refund.
We hope you understand that the health and well being of everyone that works or visits the theater is our greatest priority and your support during these times would be extremely appreciated.
