As of September 9, 2022:

Book-It Repertory Theatre will continue to require masking for entry to any and all performances at The Center Theatre at Seattle Center. This is keeping with the contracts signed with our artists and their unions, to honor the sales agreements made at time of purchase, and as mitigation against the continued outbreaks of virus variants

MASKING REQUIRED

Book-It Repertory Theatre joins with other performance groups in our area in requiring masking to ensure a safe and successful return of the Seattle-area arts.

For entry to any and all performances at The Center Theatre at Seattle Center, patrons, artists, and staff will need to wear a mask. Please, do not attend your scheduled performance if:

  • You have tested positive for Covid 19 within a 11 day period.
  •  Anyone living in your household, or to whom you have regular exposure, is awaiting a Covid test within your 48- or 24-hour test period.

 

Please note, we are no longer requiring proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test to attend shows.

Policies will evolve over time in response to the pandemic.

DETAILS:

MASK REQUIREMENT
Masks will be required for all patrons, in all areas of the venue (within the lobby, restrooms, theatre). Refusal to comply with the mask requirement, or to wearing a mask properly (covering the mouth and nose), will result in the patron being asked to leave the venue and no refund will be given.

A mask is anything made of two or more layers of tightly woven fabric with ties or straps that go around your head or behind your ears that completely covers your mouth and nose and fits securely on the sides of your face and under your chin.

Please note, children ages 5-12 are now eligible for the vaccine and are, therefore, subject to the above protocols, however our mainstage performances are generally not recommended for children under the age of 12.

Book-It generally recommends performances for ages 12+. Book-It does not allow babes in arms or children under five. For information on the suitability of a specific performance, please call the Box Office at 206.216.0833 or visit our individual show pages.

Most Book-It performances take place in The Center Theatre, which is located on the bottom floor of the Seattle Center Armory (previously known as the Center House) at 305 Harrison Street, Seattle, WA 98109. It is accessible by car or public transit.

We realize that in the hustle and bustle of Seattle Center the opportunity for getting lost is high. The Armory has many entry points:

It’s easiest to get to The Center Theatre if you use the east entrance that faces the playground and MoPOP. If you’re walking south towards the Monorail and you run into the Chihuly Garden, you’ve gone too far!

Are you in the food court? Either take the stairs or the elevator to the 1st floor. The Center Theatre is down the hall from The Children’s Museum.

Are you at the North entrance with the door that says “The Armory” and the giant eagles? Head east towards the playground, hang a right, and use the east entrance.

At Book-It, you’ll see audience members wearing everything from evening wear to the classic “Seattle tuxedo” (jeans and a flannel). Take the opportunity to dress up for a special night out or dress down for your comfort – we’re happy to have you with us either way!

Please use moderation in applying perfume, cologne, or scented lotion as some patrons have allergies.


Care for a snack or a drink before seeing the show or during intermission? We’ve got you covered.

Enjoy snacks like assorted nuts, candy, Cougar Mountain cookies, and beverages including coffee, tea, soda, water, beer, cider, and wine. Look out for our delicious specialty cocktail designed to pair perfectly with each show.

We take cash and credit cards. You are welcome to take beverages into the theatre; food is not allowed. If you have leftovers, we are able to store them at concessions during the show.


Be sure to take a look at our merchandise to take home something special after each show. We offer a variety of items for purchase including books (of course), show posters, lit-inspired enamel pins, and Book-It branded items like tote bags and mugs. We take cash and credit cards.

Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before the performance. Late seating is not guaranteed and is done at the discretion of the House Manager.

Should we be able to seat you late, we will ask you to sit in our late seating section. You may be able to take your ticketed seat after intermission. If no late seats are available, we may ask you to watch the performance from the lobby and take your ticketed seat after intermission. If you know someone in your party is going to be late, leave their ticket at the box office to pick up when they arrive.

We ask that you stay in your seat throughout the performance, except in the event of an emergency. Please note that those who exit the theatre during the performance will be asked to wait until intermission to return to their seat.


Our Administrative offices are located at 401 Mercer St. in the KCTS building. The KCTS front entrance is on 4th/Mercer/Speight Jenkins Way. Go left at the front entrance (you’ll see an orange sandwich board with our logo). Walk along a small section of brick wall and our door is right where that brick wall ends.
