Safety First

We are taking every precaution to present live theatre in an environment that is safe for our students and guests. Please plan for the following:

1. All students, faculty, staff, and visitors to campus must complete a wellness self-assessment using the app, #CampusClear. It only takes a few seconds to self-screen, and your participation helps to keep our campus safe for everyone. Once you complete the screening, you will receive a green “wellness pass” to show on your phone upon entering the theatre building. Download the #CampusClear app here:

Of course, for the safety of our students, faculty, staff, and other patrons, we ask that you complete the assessment honestly and stay home if you are experiencing symptoms.

2. Face masks that fully cover your nose and mouth are required on campus and must be worn at all times during the performance, even while seated. Neck gaiters, bandanas, face shields, and masks with valves are not sufficient. The College reserves the right to refuse entrance to anyone not wearing an appropriate face covering.

3. The theatre will be thoroughly disinfected prior to your arrival. 

4. Your party will be spaced at least 6 feet away from the next party. Please maintain distance when entering and exiting the theatre, and when using the restroom.

The Box Office

We are committed to offering our patrons the highest level of customer satisfaction at the Annie Russell Box Office. Our box office staff is comprised of committed and energetic Rollins students, and managed by Box Office and Marketing Manager Chelsea Hilend. The Annie Russell Box Office services are currently operating remotely. Reach our team at boxoffice@rollins.edu or by calling (407) 646-2145. We are available each weekday from 1 to 5pm.

Accessibility

We offer handicapped parking in the Alfond Sports Center lot directly behind the theatre. Please allow your permit to show clearly in your windshield. 

The Annie Russell offers two wheelchair access ramps into our theatre. They are located on the left side of the building, around the corner from the Box Office. One ramp takes you up in front of the box office, and into the front entrance of the theatre doors. The second ramp allows you to enter directly into the theatre seating area. You will require an usher’s assistance to access this second door, as it is only opened from the inside.

In order for us to ensure your visit to the Annie is as enjoyable as possible, please share any requests for seating accommodations at the time you book your tickets.

We have hearing assist devices for hearing impaired patrons. You may request these devices from the House Manager upon entering the theatre.

Helpful Hints

Allow Time for Campus Congestion

Please allow yourself ample time for parking. There are sometimes multiple events happening on campus around us, so plan for possible congestion on campus roads and in parking lots.

Late Comers

If you arrive late, please proceed through the Late Comers Entrance door, located to the left of the main doors of the theatre. Our House Manager will assist you to your seat at an appropriate moment. Please do not try to enter through the main front doors of the theatre once they are closed.

Concessions

We are currently not offering concessions to ensure the safety of our patrons and students. Please do not bring any food or beverage into the theatre.
