176 Waltmar Theatre - Chapman University Tips
The theater was very comfortable and there isn't a bad seat in the house.
We had to park broken n the street, but we didn't have to walk very far.
parking under the campus soccer field is free late on Fridays and on the weekends (read the signs to confirm)
No refreshments at all. I would bring water bottles next time.
We went to Ways and Means Oyster House. It's "way" overpriced - making the happy hour there not so happy.
The venue is charming since it isn't too big, but parking is a bear. Try to park on a side street but watch for posted signs. Refeshments in theater are minimal.
Bruxie and a number of other awesome eateries are right down the street.
A Night of Noh Theatre
Park under the football field. When you pop out of the structure, you will be facing the library. Make a left, then a right, and walk straight down to the street. Waltmar Theater will be on your left hand side. Parking is three bucks.
A Night of Noh Theatre
There is NO street parking for this theater even though it is in a residential neighborhood. Parking along the streets is by permit only. There was no signage to direct theater goers to the parking lot on the other side of campus (off of Glassell and Walnut). It was VERY frustrating trying to find out where to park. Once we found the underground lot, we had to walk across campus to the theater. You pay o park in this lot - which I believe was 4 hours for $3.00. Luckily we did not have to pay since there was some student event on campus. If you are handicap or have a difficult time walking long distances, I would suggest having someone drop you off in front of the theater while they go park the car. Arrive early and allow time to find parking and walk to theater.
Make sure that you park in the parking structure and walk across campus to the theater. it makes parking a lot easier.
Park near the field on the street side. It's free and no need to buy a permit. Just make sure it's the sign that says no parking on Wednesday.
You only have to walk a block to Glassell Street to find 35+ restaurants around the Plaza.
Though the theater is really nice and very well maintained, it is old and has very limited access if you cannot navigate stairs. An usher will escort you in a side entrance and, if you have made prior arrangements, you will be seated in the front row, the only row that does not require any stairs. Also, to use the restroom, you must again negotiate those same stairs to get to and back from the facilities.
If you want close parking I would suggest getting there very early. There is no parking on most of the streets.
