1,565 La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts Tips
I wore a dress and cardigan, a bit classier since it's the theater..
The weather was nice. I wore a casual dress.
There are some basic concessions available at intermission, but I highly recommend having dinner before attending. There's a Panera and Flame Broiler in the same shopping center if you need something quick. Finish your Starbucks before arriving cuz you won't be able to take it inside the lobby.
Parking is free and plentiful! Especially behind the theater, it never fills up.
Note that the Will Call/Box Office is located just on one side of the building even though there are two entrances in to the lobby which could be slightly confusing.
Plenty of free parking. Food and drinks can be purchased in the lobby before or during intermission.
There's a strip mall nearby with Subway, Flame Broiler, Carl's Jr., Sizzler, Japanese restaurant, Mexian grill, Panera Bread to name a few places in the area to eat
The staff at the theatre are about the friendliest, without being pushy or overly intrusive, that I have ever seen at a larger theatre! Congrats to the House Manager, Box Office Manager and front of house staff for being so awesome.

Stuff to keep in mind: * Bring lots of tissues (you will cry, or someone next to you will) * Snacks in the lobby are from the $2-$10 price range depending. We brought our own and ate them during intermission outside. * You have enough time to make a trip to your car during the 15 minute intermission. * The lobby is pretty big and cozy.
I really love this theater. The sight lines are good, and the productions I have seen here are as good as any I have been to elsewhere, including Broadway. The following may seem silly, but the women reading this will understand. They are VERY efficient about getting people through the bathroom at intermission. Volunteer ushers point ladies to the open stalls, and the line moves very quickly.
Plenty of free parking. Matinee people tended to dress casual. Nice jeans/slacks

Parking is free, but there are very few handicapped spaces and the parking lot is very uneven and slanted. Best to have someone drop you at the door. If you have trouble walking and are going to will call, park on the north side if that door is open, otherwise it is a long walk from the south entrance to will call and then to your seats.
