Ticket Refunds & Exchanges
All tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable unless an artist cancels or reschedules.

Ticket Purchase & Delivery/Processing Fees
Tickets for Stiefel events can be purchased in person at the Stiefel Box Office, online at www.stiefeltheatre.org, or by calling our Box Office at 785-827-1998.  Ticket orders are subject to fees. Tickets can be emailed through our ticketing system at no extra charge.  For an additional fee, tickets can be mailed (up to 10 days before the show) or held at will-call.

Arrival Time
For most events, the lobby doors open an hour prior to curtain.

The Stiefel provides complimentary wheelchair escorts to guests with special needs when requested during shows. Escorts are available at any entry point.  Your escort will not remain with you throughout the show, but they can provide assistance getting to your ticketed seat.

The Watson Bar
Beverage service (beer, wine, mixed drinks, soda and water) and snacks are available at all Stiefel performances. Outside food and beverages are not allowed in the theatre.  The bar accepts cash and credit cards.

Finding Us / Parking
The Stiefel Theatre is located at 151 S. Santa Fe in downtown Salina at the corner of Walnut and Santa Fe. There is plenty of free parking on the streets surrounding the Stiefel as well as a few parking lots behind the theatre and to the southwest of the theatre.

Accommodations and Dining
Downtown Salina has many unique restaurants within walking distance of the Stiefel.  Blue Skye and Martinelli’s Little Italy are wonderful, locally owned restaurants within walking distance and are official Stiefel partner restaurants who help feed our artists and crews. Comfort Suites, Best Western, and Homewood Suites by Hilton are official Stiefel partner hotels.

Accessible Seating
Wheelchair seating is available on the main levels of the theatre. Please contact us in advance if you have these or other special needs.  Wheelchair seating is limited and must be purchased in advance.

If you need assistance during the show, please go to your nearest usher. If additional assistance is needed the usher will get the appropriate person to further help you.

Please Be Mindful of Others
Silence all cell phones, watches and other devices. Don’t text, tweet, blog, or surf. The glow from your device can be distracting. Take note of the pre-show announcement. Many shows do not allow photography or recording. Flash photography is never allowed. If we ask you to stop, please do so. If the crowd gets up and starts dancing, join them. Don’t try to do a one person show for your own entertainment. We will ask you to sit down.

Policy for shows at the Stiefel is always set by the event promoter or performer. If photography is allowed, you may use a cell phone, digital, disposable or 35mm camera.  Professional cameras with detachable or telephoto lenses are always prohibited.

Code of Conduct
We ask all guests to be respectful of those around them.  Any guest who interferes with the enjoyment of another individual during an event is subject to immediate ejection from the building.  If you are asked to leave the building and do not comply, we reserve the right to involve Salina Police. Patrons are never allowed on stage- not before the show, during the show, or after the show.

Lost & Found
If you realize you’ve lost an item while still in the building, please inquire with Security for assistance locating the item. If you discover you’ve lost an item after you’ve left the building, please call 785-827-1998.  The Stiefel Theatre assumes no responsibility for lost items.

The Stiefel presents many of the top tours and big acts traveling through Kansas. But it is also our goal to innovate with challenging programming and expose the region to diverse performances thereby creating opportunities to learn, and experience more diversity in the arts. The wonderful Salina Symphony, www.salinasymphony.com, also makes its home at the Stiefel.
