Seating Charts

The Ariel-Ann Carson Dater Performing Arts Centre’s Morris & Dorothy Haskins Theatre has a Main Floor seating capacity of 304, including handicap accessible seating (Row P, Section 2) and Balcony seating, accessible by stairs, has a capacity of 158– total seating capacity of 462.

The main auditorium seating has been updated from original 1895 design to accommodate more leg room and wider seats. Balcony seating is that of the original Ariel Opera House with slightly less leg room between rows but comfortable wide, cushioned seating. Though each seat in the Auditorium offers an excellent view of the stage, there are slight obstructions “behind the poles” behind Row L on the main floor which are indicated on the seating charts below.

Ariel Opera House events and concerts generally use one of the following three chart configurations: General Admission or one-price reserved seating; Two-price level seating with the forward rows of the main floor and front row of the balcony “VIP” pricing; and a two-price level seating with accommodation of a runway into the front middle section.
