FAQ

Are there good places to park?  How much does parking cost?

Street parking (free) is available at both the Myriad Gardens and Paseo.  There are also numerous parking lots available around the Myriad Gardens which range from free to $10.00

Do I need to bring a lawn chair? What can I expect at the Myriad Gardens?

No! The Myriad Gardens (outdoors) has (500) fixed plastic seats and we never sell out! We have indoor restrooms and water fountains.  Our stage is located on the west side of the large botanical tube in the heart of the gardens.  You can purchase tickets online or at the door on the evening of the performance. The tickets are general admission so we advise arriving at 7:30 in order to get a good seat.

Is the Paseo venue outdoors or indoors?

Our intimate space at 2920 Paseo is indoors and can be chilly due to air conditioning, so it is always a good idea to have an extra layer just in case, even in the heat of summer. 

We have 80 seats so we advise purchasing tickets online in advance. This venue is general admission seating so early arrival is recommended.

How long does the show run?

The run time or length of an individual performance is shown on each production page. The length of a production (in weeks and months) is listed on each production page.

What are your cell phone and camera policies?

As a professional theatre in compliance with the Actor’s Equity Association the union of Professional Actors and Stage Managers, Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park does not allow any photos or video to be taken during performances.

In our intimate Paseo venue, the audience and actors are truly sharing a space. Because of this, we ask that all cell phones be turned off (even the vibrations can be heard in our space), and that there be no texting during the production. 

What age is appropriate for Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park attendance?

It is our policy to grant admittance only to persons 6 years of age or older. Young patrons must be accompanied by an adult. For information about the suitability of individual productions for various ages check the production page or contact the office 405 235-3700.

What happens if I arrive at the Theatre after the performance has begun?

At the Myriad Gardens we are able to seat patrons at any time. Due to the intimate nature of our Paseo venue and to ensure the safety of our patrons and cast members, patrons who arrive after the performance has begun will not be able to be seated, and no refunds for latecomers.

Additionally, if you leave the theatre during the performance, you may not be re-admitted until intermission.

I have a conflict for the date I am scheduled to attend. Can I exchange my tickets? 

You are welcome to exchange your tickets (up to 24 hours prior to the scheduled performance). In order to exchange for a new performance date/time, contact the box office 1-800-838-3006 (We are unable to process any ticket-related requests—including exchanges—via email.)

Tickets are not refundable. They are, however, transferable! If you find that you cannot attend the performance for which you have tickets, you may give friends your physical tickets or have them mention your name at will call.

What is your outdoor rain policy?

Due to the nature of outdoor performances in Oklahoma, we will not cancel a performance due to inclement weather* until curtain at 8:00 pm. If the show is cancelled any time before intermission, you may exchange your admission for another performance of the same show by calling 1-800-838-3006. If a performance reaches intermission before inclement weather* cancellation, no rain-checks, exchanges or refunds will be issued.

If inclement weather* cancels the final performance, no refunds or exchanges will be offered.

*inclement weather shall be defined as a sustained hard rain fall for 10-minutes or more and/or the sounding of warning sirens. 

Can I bring food and drink to the performance?

At our Myriad Gardens venue you may bring outside food and drink. At Paseo no outside food or drink may be brought in.  We have wine, beer, soda and water available for purchase.
