Musco Center for the Arts is committed to making the performing arts accessible to all.

Seating Accessibility

Patrons are welcome to use any mobility devices including walkers, canes, seeing eye dogs and oxygen tanks. Please let us know when purchasing tickets so we are prepared to make your visit as enjoyable as possible.

Musco Center offers both removable (for patrons who prefer to stay in their own wheelchair) and transferable seating options (seats have a retractable arm rest that allows a patron to transfer from a wheelchair into a theater seat). Patrons utilizing an accessible location may purchase up to three adjacent companion seats, based on availability. Additional tickets can be purchased in the closest available seats.
