Enjoy a light snack at their in house restaurant. We shared a cheese platter and a fruit platter for a total price of $14. We ordered at the first intermission to have it ready at the second intermission. (Skip the overpriced snacks at the concessions if you can help it.)

Ticket Pick-up: the Will Call pick up area was not marked. Several people (including us) waited on the wrong lines for awhile before we realized this.
