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?

COVID19 Policies

In response to COVID-19 and out of concern for the health and safety of our patrons 6th Street Playhouse has been implementing many changes. We know how important it is to our community that we continue our mission and we believe that if we can’t bring you to the theatre, we will safely bring the theatre to you. Our theatre, like others around the world, are struggling to survive during this pandemic and we will find a way.  We are proud of the virtual theatre we have created and will continue to provide to our audiences and students.  

 The safety and well-being of our staff, personnel, artists and students are of paramount importance to us. In that light these are measures we have or are in the process of taking with our workspace:

  •         6th Street Playhouse is following all current guidance and protocols from the County Health Officer, as well as State of California guidelines. When those policies change, we will notify all ticket holders of the changes in policy.
  •         Regular testing is being done with staff to discover any positive cases that occur and, upon that event,  they will be quarantined appropriately along state and county guidelines.
  •         Temperature checks, with a contactless thermometer, are required by all those who enter the theatre, classrooms or workspaces.
  •         All personnel entering the building will be asked the required questions regarding symptoms and exposure to the virus, which includes inquiring about a temperature higher than 100 degrees.
  •         All health screenings and questionnaires will be kept for contact tracing purposes.

Masks are required for anyone entering the building and must be worn at all times.  

 Production Related Safety Measures

Initial rehearsals for any and all productions at this time take place virtually with limited in-person rehearsals added later to work with cameras, lighting, and other technical requirements on as limited a basis as possible.

  •         All in-person rehearsals require all personnel to wear masks, except at the designated time of video broadcast, which is done with outside doors open for fresh air.
  •         We require frequent hand-washing and use of hand sanitizers, which we provide, as well as use of hydro-alcohol sprays to frequently wipe down all surfaces.
  •         We have installed Plexiglas partitions to be used to separate performers from each other, with the exception of those artists who cohabitate with each other.
  •         The spaces we use will be thoroughly cleaned, sanitized, and disinfected before, during, and after every rehearsal or work day, in accordance with procedures advised by the CDC and Sonoma County Health.
  •         We will use adequate ventilation including access to open doors and fresh air.
  •         We will employ social distancing at all times. Including providing separate, socially-distanced dressing rooms for all performers.
