If you need other accommodations to attend a School of Theatre production that are not listed here, please contact Theatre Manager Assistant, Alyssa Coy, at thrma@uncg.edu.  

Parking Information:

Accessible parking is available behind the Graham Building in lot 7. If you will need an accessible space during a weekday matinee performance (before 5:00 p.m.), please inform Alyssa Coy at thrma@uncg.edu in advance so she can provide you with a complimentary permit. Please do not park in the spaces reserved for the Weatherspoon Museum or the business (E.g., FedEx) across from the UNCG theatres. If possible, we recommend being dropped off at the theater for the easiest access.
