It is strongly advised that groups anticipate their needs as early and accurately as possible.

Patrons are obliged to occupy the seat for which they hold a ticket.


Gift certificates are available for purchase through the Rylander Box Office, with approval of the Managing Director. Gift certificates may be used for select events and souvenirs. 


The Rylander staff welcomes the opportunity to showcase our beautiful and historic theatre to individuals and groups. 

Appointments are strongly suggested for large group tours for safety reasons and to enable the theatre staff to provide a quality experience.
