Some audience members are allergic to perfumes, and it is therefore requested that patrons please refrain from using large quantities when attending Weis Center performances. Also, the Weis Center is an acoustically excellent facility, so please be aware that noise like coughing and talking can be heard on stage and elsewhere in the auditorium as easily as music from the stage carries to the seats. Please remember to turn off electronic devices including cell phones and pagers when enjoying a Weis Center performance. The Weis Center is a smoke-free facility.
