There are parking slips at the box office so you don't have to pay for parking

There is a lot of construction going on at Vanguard University and it is REALLY hard to find the Lyceum Theater if you haven't been there before. Also the box office doesn't answer their phone. It would be helpful to have signs at the entrance to the campus.

Drive down Fair to the third driveway to find the theater. It’s not on Fair Drive but near the back of the campus.

We picked up tickets at Will Call and had printed out a parking ticket online. Everything went very smoothly, not even a small problem anywhere. And the coffee we purchased at the intermission was hot, flavorful, and real cream was offered. Hard to beat all the good things that happened.

The Google maps steer you wrong. The entrance is actually on Newport Blvd, 3 entrances south of Fair. There is a small sign pointing you to the entrance on the right as you continue on Newport Blvd then make sure you obtain a free parking tag from the box office to place in your car but there is usually a person who gives them to you as you enter.

If you haven't printed the parking pass from Goldstar there is also a helpful person in front of the venue handing out parking passes for your car. Give yourself time to find parking as there are many dorm apartments near the theater.

Very easy parking. When you pick up your tickets be sure to get the free parking permit.

When driving to the Lyceum take the 3rd driveway after Fair. Ave. to turn into the parking lot for the theater. At the box office they will give you a parking pass to put in your car window, so you can park for free.

Get there early if you like to use the restrooms before a show. They are not in the theatre building and take a while to walk to on the campus.

If you time it right, you can park in the theater parking, then run across the street to the OC Fair for an incredible dinner. Great day.

At intermission, they sell snack bars, cookies, water, and coffee. Very few restaurants in the area - no Denny's, etc.

Don't enter off Fair Drive - the theater is at the opposite end of the campus. Enter off of Newport Blvd.

Theater is located on the campus of Vanguard University, but the best street to use is not Fair Dr., but Newport Ave. There is plenty of free parking.
